The authors provide clearly structured examples of the essential elements of the assessmentprocess. Importantly, this text is fully up to date to reflect the changes in the fifth edition of theDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). A comprehensive review of placement criteria highlights the important standard that no single method or level of care is appropriate for all individuals. Readers are shown how to develop an appropriate assessment process that applies to a couple of Remedy settings whilst also respecting the culture and individuality of every person presenting to Remedy.
From the Inside Flap
The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Remedy is the most authoritative reference for clinicians and researchers in the field of addiction and an excellent manual for residents in psychiatry, general medicine, and allied fields. This thoroughly revised fifth edition retains the basic structure of the last whilst incorporating new material on all kinds of topics and integrating the new DSM-5 classification all through. An impressive roster of contributors present the most current scientific and clinical information on quite a lot of substance use disorders, from legal substances such as tobacco and alcohol, to prescription drugs such as OxyContin, to the epidemic of illicit drugs such as methamphetamine and “club drugs,” to substances, such as marijuana, that may change into a more critical problem as access is liberalized.
Indispensable for many who treat substance use disorders in doctor’s offices, examining rooms, emergency departments, hospitals, and recovery facilities, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Remedy is comprehensive, compatible with DSM-5, and utterly current.
