Summary:
ADDICTION PSYCHIATRY: Current Diagnosis and Treatment—Norman S. Miller, M. D. Addiction psychiatry is a relatively young field that encompasses the causes, characteristics, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of drug or alcohol addiction—in addition to the specific mental disorders that frequently co-occur with substance abuse. Addiction Psychiatry: Current Diagnosis and Treatment is a unique work in that it not only provides a comprehensive, practical overview of addiction psychiatry, but also gives detailed accounts of the most current clinical issues. The book opens with an overview of the history and basic tenets of the field, then goes on to explore the relationship between psychiatric and addictive disorders. Subsequent sections offer guidelines for laboratory testing to achieve diagnosis, or "dual diagnosis" in cases of co-occurring disorders. The text concludes with extensive discussions of specific and practical treatment options, as well as some thoughts on preventing addiction. Individual chapters in the text cover such topics as: DSM I-IV and exclusionary criteria for addictive disorders Classification for diagnosis in addiction psychiatry Course and prognosis of psychiatric and addictive disorders Addictive disease as a psychiatric disorder Clinical indications for testing Methodology and guidelines for laboratory testing A systematic approach to differential diagnosis and treatment Abstinence-based treatment and other forms of therapy Treatment in psychiatric and addiction settings A practical guide to pharmacological treatments The prevention of abuse and addiction to drugs and alcohol Written by a widely recognized authority in the field, Addiction Psychiatry: Current Diagnosis and Treatment is designed to serve as a standard reference for this rapidly growing specialty. This book will prove an indispensable resource for addiction psychiatrists, psychiatrists, residents in psychiatry training programs, students, and all professionals involved in the treatment of alcohol and drug addiction.

The spectrum of addiction disorders presents practitioners with numerous challenges—among them the widening gap between a growing evidence base and the translation of this knowledge into treatment outcomes. Addiction Medicine addresses this disconnect, clearly explaining the role of brain function in drug taking and other habit-forming behaviors, and applying this biobehavioral framework to the delivery of evidence-based treatment. Its state-of-the-art coverage provides clinically relevant details on not only traditional sources of addiction such as cocaine, opiates, and alcohol, but
