Description : Recent -- and exciting -- discoveries of the neuropharmacology and psychopharmacology of addictive disorders make the Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology an essential guide to our understanding of this exceptionally challenging field. Written with a therapeutic focus as a clinical guide for the use of pharmacotherapy in patients with substance use disorders, the Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology offers • In-depth background discussion on each major class of drug and its treatment.• Meticulously detailed reviews of the pharmacology of addictive drugs and the medications used to treat dependence on these addictive drugs.• The latest work of 24 recognized experts from both the United States and abroad -- all contributors to the empirical literature covered here.• Nine chapters, highlighted by informative illustrations, covering all of the major classes of substances that are clinically important in relation to addiction: alcohol, opioids, sedative-hypnotics, cannabis, cocaine and psychostimulants, hallucinogens and phencyclidine, club drugs (gamma-hydroxybutyrate, ecstasy, and ketamine), inhalants, and tobacco.• A discussion of psychosocial treatments combined with pharmacotherapy for alcohol, cocaine, and opioid use disorders. The goal of this approach is to optimize outcomes by understanding how patient characteristics, such as substance use disorder typology, severity, family history, and comorbid psychopathology, may interact with psychosocial and pharmacological treatment. Each chapter covers three primary aspects of a major drug group: an overview of the clinical pharmacology of the abused substance, phenomenology or pharmacological treatment or both of the abstinence syndrome, and pharmacological treatment for relapse prevention. For disorders in which no clear pharmacotherapy has proven effective (e.g., cocaine dependence), or for disorders in which no clear abstinence syndrome has been established (e.g., marijuana dependence), authors review the basic pharmacology of the drug and the phenomenology of withdrawal to enable clinicians to evaluate new clinical research in medications development for those disorders. An essential guide for clinical and social work, the Clinical Manual of Addiction Psychopharmacology will find a wide audience among all prescribing clinicians, psychiatric educators and their students, and other mental health practitioners.

Description : Emerging approaches to treating addictions and minimizing relapse are spotlighted in this idea-packed volume, as alternatives or adjuncts to standard psychological and pharmacological therapies. Its biopsychosocial perspective delves into the causes and processes of chemical dependence, and the clinical characteristics it shares with other addictions (e.g., food, sex, gambling, online activities), to identify client needs that substance abuse may fulfill. Accordingly, the diverse modalities featured here address substance addiction on multiple levels, offering clients physical or mental stimulation and/or emotional relief as well as affording different degrees of autonomy. Methods can be mixed and matched to reinforce treatment goals, and clinicians can tailor treatment to individual issues and interests to assure clients nuanced and meaningful care. Included in the coverage: · Use of herbal medicine to treat drug addiction. · EMDR therapy and the treatment of substance abuse and addiction. · Evaluating the change processes in drug users’ interventions. · Web-based interventions for substance abuse. · Physical exercise and treatment of addiction. · Mindfulness to reduce the anxiety during the abstinence · Neurofeedback to deal with craving and anxiety symptoms Psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and addiction counselors and educators will find Innovations in the Treatment of Substance Addiction a valuable sourcebook for understanding addiction—and intervention—in its wider context.

Description : An updated and expanded edition on the roles that brain function and genetics play in addiction. Over the past 10 years, neurobiologic and genetic research has provided an increased understanding of what causes drug addiction in the brain’s reward pathway. Knowing this leads to a better understanding of how it may be treated and even reversed in those who successfully overcome the disease. This is especially true with addiction’s possible precursors of mild to moderate substance use disorders. These latter disorders can usually be treated more easily by less intensive models of “treatment” that do not require actual brain chemistry re-regulation over time. In this new edition, there are updated scientific references to support addiction as a medical brain disease, using the prevailing neurobiology, genetics, and psychological scientific literature. We now have more psychosocial and medicinal methods for reversing abnormal brain chemistry during drug addiction. There are also more effective intervention, counseling, and motivating methods (SBIRT, motivational interviewing) for overcoming resistance to treatment and resistance to change than were able to be discussed when the first edition was published over a decade ago. Here, readers will find a fully-updated glossary of terms, additional abbreviations, and updated appendices. These will aid in clarifying the somewhat lengthy and science-based upgrades in our knowledge of neuroscience and genetics research that are so critical in understanding why addiction is such a serious and tough-to-treat disease. Utilizing the same easy-to-read language that was a hallmark of the earlier edition, Erickson keeps the science understandable yet comprehensive—appropriate for health professionals as well as lay readers who need and want this critical information.

Description : Discovering Addiction brings the history of human and animal experimentation in addiction science into the present with a wealth of archival research and dozens of oral-history interviews with addiction researchers. Professor Campbell examines the birth of addiction science---the National Academy of Sciences's project to find a pharmacological fix for narcotics addiction in the late 1930s---and then explores the human and primate experimentation involved in the succeeding studies of the "opium problem," revealing how addiction science became "brain science" by the 1990s. Psychoactive drugs have always had multiple personalities---some cause social problems; others solve them---and the study of these drugs involves similar contradictions. Discovering Addiction enriches discussions of bioethics by exploring controversial topics, including the federal prison research that took place in the 1970s---a still unresolved debate that continues to divide the research community---and the effect of new rules regarding informed consent and the calculus of risk and benefit. This fascinating volume is both an informative history and a thought-provoking guide that asks whether it is possible to differentiate between ethical and unethical research by looking closely at how science is made. Nancy D. Campbell is Associate Professor of Science and Technology Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the author of Using Women: Gender, Drug Policy, and Social Justice. "Compelling and original, lively and engaging---Discovering Addiction opens up new ways of thinking about drug policy as well as the historical discourses of addiction." ---Carol Stabile, University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee Also available: Student Bodies: The Influence of Student Health Services in American Society and Medicine, by Heather Munro Prescott Illness and the Limits of Expression, by Kathlyn Conway White Coat, Clenched Fist: The Political Education of an American Physician, by Fitzhugh Mullan

Description : Buprenorphine: Combatting Drug Abuse with a Unique Opioid Editors: Alan Cowan and John W. Lewis Scientists involved in the study of opioid pharmacology and drug abuse have long included among their goals the development of effective analgesics with reduced potential for abuse and dependence, and the development of effective pharmacological agents for the treatment of opioid abuse and dependence. Buprenorphine appears to have made an important scientific and clinical contribution on both of these fronts. In this timely volume, international experts describe the unusual chemical and biological characteristics which make this agent unique, from the opiate receptor, through animal pharmacology, to clinical uses, culminating in a discussion of the use of buprenorphine as a medication in the treatment of opioid abuse. Buprenorphine holds great promise as a significant addition to the therapeutic menu available to drug abuse therapists. Buprenorphine: Combatting Drug Abuse with a Unique Opioid will be indispensable to scientists and clinicians in pharmacology, neurobiology, psychiatry, neurology, and psychology, as well as to the wide spectrum of professionals involved in countering substance abuse.
