Encyclopedia of Substance Abuse Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery

Two Volume Set
Edited by:


January 2009 | 1 152 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Substance abuse is one of the most frequent and serious problems encountered by human service workers, criminal justice professionals, and clinicians. Unfortunately, many professionals in these fields receive little, if any, formal training about this problem. Our planned encyclopedia presents state-of-the-art research and evidence-based applications in A-to-Z format. Rather than create a compendium of specific drugs and drug effects, for which there are any number of fine titles already available, the focus will be upon practical knowledge and skills for pre-service and in-service human service professionals, including substance abuse counselors and prevention specialists.

“....The scope ... includes behavioral addictions such as eating disorders, gambling and compulsive shopping. Preparation for the profession is heavily featured in numerous articles on standards, training, ethics and professional organizations. An emphasis on expectations and current practice make this set an excellent resource for those preparing for work in these fields. Therefore, this title is highly appropriate for academic libraries.”—John R. M. Lawrence

"A work of the scope and quality of this encyclopedia on a topic of major and current interest comes along infrequently. This set covers relevant aspects of some 300 topics related to substance abuse in a format that is consistent throughout...This two-volume work of 1000 pages is authoritative, easy to use, and most informative. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; general readers."
