Product description


This is a good quality book, useful for the adolescent psychiatrist and others involved in treating adolescents with substance abuse.

From the Inside Flap

The terrible dangers of substance abuse are magnified during adolescence, when disrupting the development of critical physical, mental, emotional, and social skills magnifies the potential for physical and psychosocial harm. The three primary causes of adolescent mortality -- injury, suicide, and homicide -- are all associated with substance abuse.

These distinguished contributors -- all with extensive hands-on clinical experience, and some with first-hand experience as recovering substance abusers -- combine the exceptionally complex theory with the practice of diagnosing, evaluating, and treating adolescents with substance abuse disorders. Using clinical case vignettes to illustrate the difficulty of daily care for substance-abusing adolescents, the authors also include practical advice on how to select the best treatment for these patients. They detail a broad range of topics -- epidemiological data, risk factors, diagnosis, role of the primary care physician, the ideal evaluation, treatment planning and case management, inpatient and outpatient treatment settings, the often-controversial option of psychopharmacology, spiritual (nontheological) treatment, family therapy, relapse management, and the developmental perspective -- and chapters conclude with a practical and clinically integrated case vignette approach to reviewing the knowledge from previous chapters.

This wide-ranging text details how to cope in this difficult and constantly evolving era of managed care, in which cutting costs often takes precedence over providing appropriate patient care. With its clear prose and detailed case vignettes, this volume offers an extra dimension of knowledge and skill to students and clinicians alike, especially child psychiatrists, addiction specialists, pediatricians, family medicine physicians, drug abuse counselors, and social and juvenile justice workers.
