OverviewFrom inhalants and alcohol to synthetic drugs and opiates, CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, 10th Edition, reflects the explosion of information regarding the understanding, identification and treatment of substance use disorders. Author Harold Doweiko also examines the use and misuse of tobacco, barbiturates, amphetamines, cocaine and hallucinogens as well as chemicals frequently left out of other books--such as aerosols, steroids and over-the-counter analgesics. One thing you won't find is a judgmental approach preaching that 'drugs are bad for you.' By studying the facts and concepts in this book, you get the information you need to understand relevant research related to misused substances and help your clients overcome substance misuse challenges.
