Bankole A. Johnson, editor
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
