Book Description

International in its scope and multidisciplinary in its approach, The International Handbook of Addiction Behaviour, originally published in 1991, set a new agenda in the addictions field. This volume brings together the full variety of scientific approaches to addiction behaviour. It broke new ground by highlighting the links between clinical work, training and research and proposes a way forward towards integrated treatment interventions. This title is a definitive teaching text and will still be a valuable resource for students in the addiction field.
