Comprehensive Addictive Behaviors and Disorders, Volume 3Editor-in-Chief:
- Peter Miller, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, USA
Volume 3, Intervention for Addictions, provides chapters on psychosocial treatments, pharmacological treatments, provision of health care to addicted individuals, prevention, and public policy issues. Basically, this volume contains the practical application of the information in Volumes 1 and 2.
Overall, this volume provides a detailed picture of the myriad of science-based interventions available for the treatment of addiction. With the expanding growth of neurobiological research newer and more effective pharmacological treatments should be available on the near horizon. Public policy interventions are increasingly being based on the scientific literature rather than political ideologies, leading to more effective prevention interventions throughout the world.
