Frances, Richard R and Miller, Steve and Mack, Avram H, eds. (2005) Clinical textbook of addictive disorders. New York: Guilford .


Now in a revised and expanded third edition, this authoritative clinical reference and text presents state-of-the-science knowledge about all aspects of addictive disorders and their treatment. Leading researchers and practitioners describe best practices in assessment and diagnosis and provide the latest information on working with users of specific substances. Issues in working with particular populations--including culturally diverse patients, women, and older adults--are thoroughly addressed, and widely used psychosocial and pharmacological treatment approaches are reviewed. Featuring expanded coverage of comorbidity and dual diagnosis, the third edition includes entirely new chapters on the neuroscientific basis of addiction, addiction to gambling and to pain medications, and substance abuse in the workplace, as well as a chapter on dialectical behavior therapy.
