Substance use and related addictive disorders rate amongst the top four risk factors contributing to the global burden of disease and form an increasingly important part of medical and healthcare practice. Substance use disorders can cause, mimic, underlie or complicate a large number of common medical and psychiatric disorders. Making a correct diagnosis of the substance use disorder can facilitate clinical diagnosis, avoid unnecessary tests, shorten the hospital stay and make the clinician's and patient's life easier and safer. Part of the successful Oxford Specialist Handbooks series, the second edition of Addiction Medicine is a concise and practical guide for students, practitioners of medicine and other health professions who come into contact with people with substance use disorders. Providing up-to-date practical assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management options, this edition expands on the first edition through updated content and global coverage of addiction medicine. Edited by a global team of addiction specialists from multiple disciplines, Addiction Medicine, Second edition contains everything you need to know to assist in the assessment, diagnosis and clinical management of patients with substance use and related addictive disorders.
