Addiction is increasingly being recognized as a major global public health issue, and an ever-growing number of medical specialties, psychological and social science training programs, and professional associations are including addiction as part of their training and continuing education curricula. The first edition of this book presented an overview of the spectrum of addiction-related problems across different cultures around the globe. Sharing the experience and wisdom of more than 260 leading experts in the field, and promoted by the International Society of Addiction Medicine, it compared and contrasted clinical practices in the field of addiction medicine on the basis of neurobiological similarities as well as epidemiological and socio-cultural differences. Building on the success of this inaugural edition, and taking into account the formal and informal comments received as well as an assessment of current need, this textbook presents general updated information while retaining the most requested sections of the first edition as demonstrated by the number of chapter downloads. It also provides a basic text for those preparing for the ISAM annual certification exam. Written by some 220 international experts, it is a valuable reference resource for anyone interested in medicine, psychology, nursing, and social science.

This book emphasizes the importance of integrative care among the healthcare professionals involved in addiction treatment and includes a plan for executing and assessing the success of the system. Drawing on three decades of experience helping practitioners, managers, administrators, and funders understand and implement this treatment, Dr. Hemphill discusses the history and integration of coordinated care, and details how it works in practice from the medical and business perspectives. He outlines a model that encourages the expansion of detection systems and stresses the importance of behavioral health treatment in addiction treatment centers, which can reduce treatment costs and enhance care management. Resources are included for assessing organizational readiness, monitoring outcomes, and suggestions for continuous improvement to ensure a seamless transition, leading to better outcomes, patient engagement, and worker job satisfaction. This book offers innovative solutions that any healthcare professional practicing behavioral health and addiction medicine can utilize to ensure optimal care.

Addiction is the United States' most pervasive and damaging public health problem, yet most Americans receive care that results in a failure rate that is both astronomically high and shielded from public view. The New Addiction Treatment examines the current state of the addiction treatment business and explores the reasons why (unlike those for all other behavioral, psychological, or neurological disorders) the treatment of addiction has been stagnant and little improved since the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. After describing the size and scope of the problem and examining actual recovery rates for those who undergo treatment, David A. Patterson Silver Wolf asserts that there are effectively two kinds of treatment regimes in the United States: those that medical doctors receive, and those for the rest of us. The former has about an 80% success rate, the latter about an 80% failure rate. Drawing from his own experience as a former patient and person in long-term recovery, as well as his 22 years as a clinician, professor, and researcher, Patterson Silver Wolf describes many of the impediments to effective treatment today. This book offers a plausible and cost-effective way to disrupt the dismal status quo and realistically aspire to a higher success rate for everyone who receives professional help for a substance use disorder.

ADDICTION TREATMENT covers the biological, psychological, and social aspects of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. The authors bridge the gap between the popular twelve-step and harm-reduction approaches, thus illuminating how practitioners can guide clients down a trusted path that is tailored towards the client's particular needs. Through a number of first-person narratives about the experience of addiction, students will discover a realism and depth not commonly found in textbooks. In addition, the authors include student-friendly topics, such as the case against so-called underage drinking laws, to draw students into the material and illustrate the importance of reducing harm within the biopsychological framework that ties the text together. Updated to reflect the DSM-5, this edition also includes the latest insights into social determinants of health, trauma-informed care, working with transgender populations, and other timely topics.

All across the United States, individuals, families, communities, and health care systems are struggling to cope with substance use, misuse, and substance use disorders. Substance misuse and substance use disorders have devastating effects, disrupt the future plans of too many young people, and all too often, end lives prematurely and tragically. Substance misuse is a major public health challenge and a priority for our nation to address. The effects of substance use are cumulative and costly for our society, placing burdens on workplaces, the health care system, families, states, and communities. The Report discusses opportunities to bring substance use disorder treatment and mainstream health care systems into alignment so that they can address a person's overall health, rather than a substance misuse or a physical health condition alone or in isolation. It also provides suggestions and recommendations for action that everyone-individuals, families, community leaders, law enforcement, health care professionals, policymakers, and researchers-can take to prevent substance misuse and reduce its consequences.
