About

Overview

CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, Ninth Edition, provides comprehensive coverage and the latest information on a full spectrum of substance use disorders and the compounds commonly abused. Topics include the abuse of and addiction to alcohol; how the active agent in marijuana, THC, affects neural growth and development; the emerging body of evidence suggesting a relationship between marijuana abuse and psychotic disorders; the emerging body of evidence suggesting that marijuana is not as benign as it was thought to be a few years ago; and the abuse of cough syrups. Adding to the book's usefulness and relevance, Doweiko also covers topics not usually discussed in other substance abuse texts, including abuse of anabolic steroids, inhalants, infectious diseases associated with substance abuse, how the “war on drugs” has actually contributed to the problem of substance abuse/addiction in this country, and the “medical marijuana” debate. This edition includes new information on synthetic marijuana, mephredone, and dextromethorphan, among other substances; updates reflecting the new DSM-5; and a new chapter on the Biopsychosocial Model of Addiction. Students report that they appreciate the author's balanced approach, which allows them to form their own opinions, in contrast to some books that “preach” that “drugs are bad for you.”

Features and Benefits

  • Chapter 21, “Substance Use Disorders in College Settings,” reflects an emerging body of evidence that suggests that substance use disorders follow a different trajectory for persons who graduate from high school and then enter college, as opposed to those young adults who simply enter the work force.
  • The book focuses on important issues to consider when working with clients, such as the effect of chemicals on neonates, the dually diagnosed client, chemical abuse by children and adolescents, codependency and enabling, and addiction and the family.
  • Clear guidelines and strategies for human service workers-including evaluation, intervention techniques, treatment, recovery, and common problems in treatment-help students prepare to work effectively with clients.
  • An end-of-book glossary helps students review and retain the many new terms they learn in the book.
  • Discussion questions for each chapter are provided to help the student understand the complex nature of the substance use disorders and some of the controversies associated with this topic.

Reviews

“This text is a detailed look at chemical dependency from a biological, scientific, social, and humanistic perspective. It will make you question what you thought you knew about the world of addictions, and open the door to the possibility of issues not always considered.”

— Carol Lynn Hulce, University of Wisconsin-Superior

“I believe that all healthcare professionals should have access to this text as it is the first reference I reach for due to the comprehensive coverage of topics and the reliance I have on the research within that it has been researched and updated.”

— Debra Murray, Viterbo University
