The Pharmacology of Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse and Addiction by Norman S. Miller



This study has been designed to assist the practitioner in the diagnosis and treatment of alcohol and drug abuse and addiction in clinical practice. Step-by-step-formulas for conceptualizing alcohol-and drug-related problems characterize each chapter. Specific syndromes and simple detoxification schedules are described and discussed within an instructional framework aimed at providing answers to a wide range of clinical problems. Topics explored include the psychiatric consequences of alcohol and drugs of abuse and addiction; the neurochemistry of tolerance, dependence and addiction; long-term recovery from the pharmacological effects of addiction to alcohol and drugs; the pharmacology of drug testing and the prevention of abuse and addiction to alcohol and drugs. Cannabis, central nervous system stimulants, nicotine, narcotics, sedative-hypnotics, hallucinogens, non-prescription medications and designer drugs are among the substances examined.
