This new volume provides a very welcome and much needed compilation of key articles and reviews on various aspects of drug abuse. It includes a very useful introductory section outlining the basic principles in pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenomics and the subsequent chapters delve further into these principles for various classes of drugs of abuse. The information is clearly laid out and is complemented with a section on detection and treatment of drug and alcohol abuse.
At times of crisis, we observe an increase in the severity of drugs and alcohol related problems and a rise in gambling and internet addiction. The SAGE Handbook of Drug & Alcohol Studies Volume 2 comes at the right time to deepen our understanding of addiction aetiology and new forms that affect every area of personal and family life. The Handbook raises awareness of treatment options for successful recovery and for fighting stigma in today’s turbulent environment.
