Summary

CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY, Seventh Edition reflects the explosion of information regarding the understanding, identification, and treatment of addictive disorders. Doweiko examines the use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, barbiturates, amphetamines, cocaine, opiates, and hallucinogens, as well as chemicals frequently left out of other books -- such as aerosols, steroids, and over-the-counter analgesics. Additionally, the text investigates solid strategies for working with clients, the differences between abusers and addicts; drug effects on children, teenagers, and pregnant and nursing women; and children of alcoholics.
