Book Description

While the war on drugs continues to attract world attention, it is often overlooked that alcoholism remains a major worldwide health concern. No matter what your expertise, the CRC Handbook of Alcoholism can help you acquire the necessary skills to treat problem drinkers and alcohol-dependent patients.
In three sections - Patient Care, Research, and Useful Data and Definitions - this comprehensive handbook not only addresses the underlying psychological problems of alcoholism, but helps you to better diagnose and treat the nonpsychiatric medical disorders caused by the disease.


"There is no comparable guide to the merits of different cognitive tests, which remains a gap in many texts concerned with alcohol-related problems. This book will find a very valuable place in the library of hospitals and clinics that work with individuals who have drinking problems. It is perhaps most useful for the information it contains about the biological and clinical aspects of alcohol and its advice about pharmacological therapies. In this respect, it deserves to be widely available as a source for reference and guidance."
Alcohol and Alcoholism

"This thorough and current book is well laid out and easy to read. Its use of quick-reference tables on the inside covers and the useful data and definitions section present pertinent information in a readily accessible manner important to busy primary care physicians"
-Doody Publishing

"...this is a most useful monograph for the practical information that it contains and for its summary of the main areas of research. This monograph will be a useful reference source for all hospital and academic libraries."
