This up-to-the-minute reference explores current trends, disease etiology and associations, novel assessment tools, and modern laboratory tests to promote coordinated treatment of comorbid substance abuse, psychiatric disease, and general medical conditions-recognizing the causal relationship between substance abuse and medical and psychiatric disorders and the effect of addiction on the outcome of individual patient recovery.

Provides a discussion by Pietro Castelnuovo-Tedesco on the psychodynamic principles that guide the treatment of patients with substance abuse disorders-with or without concurrent medical or psychiatric illnesses!

Reviewing major epidemiological studies on psychiatric comorbidity, Substance Abuse in the Mentally and Physically Disabled addresses
diseases such as cirrhosis of the liver, stroke, depression, dementia, AIDS, and those of the neurological and cardiovascular systems that are closely related to alcohol and drug abuse

delay of emotional healing in drug abusers
substance misuse, behavior, and physical health in the elderly
additional topics!
