McNeece, C. Aaron, DiNitto, Diana M.


This well-respected text on substance abuse takes a comprehensive look at chemical dependency, covering the most recent issues in the areas of epidemiology, etiology, substance abuse policy, and treatment. Chemical Dependency: A Systems Approach, Third Edition, looks at substance abuse from a systems perspective, making it particularly appropriate for social work students who are accustomed to a person-in-environment approach. All major theories of addiction are presented, as well as the major physiological and psychological results of substance abuse, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Coverage of the latest developments in treatment and research incorporates the most recent findings on genetic causes of alcoholism. This edition includes an up-to-date discussion of the most recent trends in designer drugs, to account for the considerable frequency in which drug use patterns occur. In addition, the most recent policy changes at the state, federal, and international levels have been added. What's New to This Edition APA format is used throughout the entire text, making footnotes and references more manageable and easier to follow. New chapter on the neurobiology of addiction provides the most current information on the consequences and causes of substance abuse problems (Ch. 2). A list of resources at the end of each chapter provides students with mailing addresses and websites for additional information on each subject. This is the best text on substance abuse for social work published. It's as classic a text for social work as Oakley Ray's pharmacology text of the 80s and 90s. Paul R. Raffoul, University of Houston The authors have a good writing style.
