Description

Reviews

Volume 3 continues coverage of advances made in the past ten years, focusing on the full range of interventions for the treatment of heroin addiction. Non-pharmacological interventions, including cognitive-behavior therapy, therapeutic communities, family therapy, and drug-free interventions are among those covered, as is the treatment of addicted women. Volume 1's comprehensive coverage of pharmacological treatments, including detoxification and methadone, is continued, with particular emphasis on recent evidence concerning the effectiveness of these modalities. HIV and AIDS, as they relate to injection drug use, are covered, as are interventions. Issues related to drug abuse policy, treatment effectiveness, and research are addressed. This volume consists of all new material, is cross-referenced to Volumes 1 and 2, and contains a cumulative author and subject index for Volumes 1, 2, and 3 with over 5000 entries.

"… these volumes belong in the libraries of all institutions with comprehensive addictions collections, and they will be useful to students in the health professions and public policy development and administration." -- T.D. DeLapp, CHOICE, March 1996. "Overall, Platt has provided a useful and compact review of the research literature on the treatment of heroin addiction, one that is accessible and readable, balanced in its consideration of the issues, and comprehensive in its coverage without being exhaustive." -- Wayne Hall, Addiction, 1996.
