In this comprehensive introduction to the study of substance use and abuse, the authors explore both the personal and the societal consequences of alcohol and drug problems. A series of provocative chapters also helps students to navigate the unique problems facing women, adolescents, college students, the elderly, racial minorities, and the GLBT community. Trends in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and policy are all thoroughly covered. Among its many outstanding features, the book: puts a human face on the problems of alcohol and drug addiction; highlights the implications of theory and research for policy and practice; includes thematic discussion questions and an inventory of key concepts and terms; and, emphasizes readability for a challenging but not overly technical approach. This is a comprehensive, accessible introduction to the study of substance use, abuse, and treatment.
