MEDIA REVIEWS
"The preface to Alcohol Problems in Adolescents and Young Adults states, 'Adolescence is already challenging. The addition of alcohol has only made it more so.' What follows is an excellent review of alcohol abuse and dependence problems in young men and women....The book provides a comprehensive assessment of alcohol problems among adolescents and young adults, and it enhances our fund of information concerning the diagnosis, treatment, and ultimately prevention of alcohol problems in this vulnerable population."

Jack H. Mendelson, M.D., New England Journal of Medicine, May 25, 2006

"The mix of theory and research in these chapters underscores the influence of the two organizations responsible for this series. Theory informs the presented research in a way that will please both the person who likes to consider cuases and the person who likes to see results. The writing is clear and straightforward, with little jargon or minutia. Even the neurological section is accessible to the relatively physiologically naive reader."

Joan B. Reed in PsycCRITIQUES, June 21, 2006, Vol. 51 (25), Article 13


From the reviews:

"This volume in the Recent Developments in Alcoholism series is a unique and comprehensive review of 12-step programs/Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and spirituality, how they intersect, and how they aid in the treatment of addiction. All healthcare providers, researchers, and students involved in the treatment of patients with alcoholism and addictions are the intended audience. It will also be useful for anyone interested in spirituality as a model for helping chronic illnesses. This is a valuable reference for anyone in this field ." (Michael Easton, Doody 's Review Service, June, 2009)
