The American Society of Addiction Medicine Handbook on Pain and Addiction provides clinical considerations and guidelines for the clinician treating patients with pain and addiction. Produced by the largest medical society dedicated to the improvement of addiction care, the book takes an evidence-based approach and uses articles from both the literature and well-regarded organizations and government agencies including NIDA, CDC, SAMHSA, PCSS-O, and ASAM itself. The ASAM Handbook is structured in five sections that cover the core concepts of addressing pain and addiction; diagnosis and treatment; treating pain in patients with, or at risk for, co-occuring addiction; treating substance use disorders (SUD) and addiction in patients with co-occuring pain; and adapting treatment to the needs of specific populations. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading on the topics discussed. This book is ideal for primary care providers, mental health clinicians, SUD clinicians, and pain clinicians who wish to bridge the knowledge gaps related to treating patients with pain and addiction.
