This 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 while incorporating new material on a wide variety of topics and integrating the new DSM-5 classification throughout. An impressive roster of contributors present the most current scientific and clinical information on a wide range 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 become a more critical problem as access is liberalized.
