Since ancient times medical practitioners have wrestled with how to effectively treat addiction. These treatments, which in many cases have evolved from trial and error, have changed radically over the years. This case study-filled reference offers practical advice that will guide physicians away from mistakes and help them follow the latest methods of treatment for alcohol and drug dependencies. Rooted in the idea that clinicians must remain open to new, inventive treatment methods while maintaining a scientific approach, Addiction Treatment: Avoiding Pitfalls-A Case Approach puts current treatment methods into the context of past practices-both successful and unsuccessful. A distinguished group of physicians from the GAP Committee on Alcoholism and Addictions use fascinating case studies to illuminate discussions and illustrate common treatment pitfalls, exploring topics such as screening, diagnosis, and assessment; managing and monitoring the phases of treatment and recovery; psychotherapy; pharmacotherapy and other somatic therapies; the doctor-patient relationship; social networks and addiction treatment; self-help groups in recovery; myths and misconceptions in treating addicted women; and more. Alcoholism and addictions are difficult to recognize early, and treatment is often complicated by psychiatric or medical illness, the presence or lack of support systems, and negative social attitudes. By categorizing key areas fraught with pitfalls and misconceptions, analyzing real-life case studies, and drawing conclusions, this book will help those practicing or interested in taking up addiction psychiatry to avoid mistakes and keep up-to-date with the latest methods and innovations in treatment.
