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.

This book covers all type of addictions, from substance abuses and eating disorders to gambling, pornography, and shopping. This two volume set contains frank and factual information about symptoms, causes, effects, prevention, and treatment of substance abuse - alcohol, nicotine, and drugs - and of 'behavioural addictions' such as eating disorders, pathological gambling, and compulsive sexual activity. Including the most up-to-date research, entries trace the history of the debate over whether addiction is a choice or a disease, and explain how genetic and biological findings support the disease concept while lifestyle choices affect the course of the disease. Graphics and discussions of the brain structures that support this self-reinforcing mechanism illustrate why treatments that obstruct the pathway are showing such promise.The volumes offer an historical perspective including biographical information on pioneers in addictions research and treatment. Some material is presented in 'fact boxes' and other graphically pleasing formats. This single-source reference includes lists of support groups, organizations devoted to addictions research and treatment, and suggestions for obtaining further information.

Alcoholism afflicts individuals of all social groups and age levels, although young adults have the greatest risk for addiction to alcohol. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than 51 percent of Americans—more than 125 million people over 12 years of age—reported being current drinkers in 2007. That same year, an estimated 1.3 million people received treatment for the use of alcohol, and another 1.4 million received treatment for using both alcohol and illegal drugs, while roughly 19.3 million others who needed treatment did not receive it. The Encyclopedia of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse examines the history of alcohol and alcoholism, providing detailed information about alcohol abuse and dependence. It explains the process by which alcohol dependence emerges, contributing factors, how to recognize alcohol dependence, what treatments are available, and the health impact if it is left untreated. Topics covered include the environmental and genetic factors for alcoholism, psychiatric illnesses associated with it, and the various social issues connected to alcohol use, ranging from lost work days to domestic violence. Appendixes include directories of national agencies and organizations, state agencies and organizations, child protective service agencies, mental health agencies, and statistics on alcohol use and abuse. Topics include: Adolescents and drinking Alcohol and the elderly Alcohol-related child neglect and abuse Alcohol-use disorders Driving while intoxicated Effects of alcohol and alcohol use in men and women Emergency treatment Families and alcohol Pregnancy and alcohol Psychiatric disorders Smoking and alcohol Underage drinking.
