This book is a comprehensive manual written by leaders in the field of addiction in both Australia and New Zealand. Despite its numerous contributors, the book flows seamlessly through the history of drug use, to opioids, cannabis, psychostimulants, alcohol and tobacco use. There are well written sections on Aboriginal Australians and Mäori, explaining the particular problems of each group. A strong clinical focus is present which describes assessment, diagnosis and treatments available. Graphic case studies illustrate chapters on women and substance abuse, adolescent drug use and coexisting mental disorders.
