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
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.
