Bean, Philip and Nemitz, Teresa, eds. (2004) Drug treatment: what works? London: Routledge .

Britain, like almost everywhere else, has a burgeoning drug problem. Finding ways of dealing with this problem is a major platform of Government policy and a great deal has been made of the impact of treatment on drug users.Drug Treatment: What Works? Is a cutting edge survey of the latest developments in these treatments, and it sets out to ask some of the crucial questions in the treatment of drug abusers; including: * Which treatments work with what sorts of abusers? * What are the key indicators of likely success? * Does coercion work or must treatment be freely entered into? * Is drug testing an essential backup for successful treatment? Featuring contributions from some the leading figures in this field, Drug Treatment: What Works? will be essential reading for students, academics and professionals studying drug treatment in the areas criminology, social policy and medicine.
