"The new two-volume Oxford Handbook of Substance Use and Substance Use Disorders is breathtaking in its broad-ranging and comprehensive survey of biomedical, behavioral, and social research on addiction. It will be required reading for all who seek to understand addiction, from students to experts in the field, and from clinical practitioners to the interested lay public. It does a particularly fine job of pulling together in accessible form contributions from leading basic scientists and leading clinical researchers, which will surely help accelerate progress in the battle against harms arising through substance use disorder."
--Andrew C. Heath, D.Phil, Spencer T. Olin Professor in Psychiatry, Department of Psychiatry, Washington University School of Medicine
"This comprehensive handbook provides an empirically grounded, insightful, and accessible review of the current knowledge on substance use and substance use disorders. It is a landmark achievement, unique in the breadth and depth of coverage devoted to the array of topics relevant to our understanding of substance use and misuse, including, as examples, epidemiology, neurobiology/genetics, psychological and social factors, assessment, treatment, and prevention. This handbook will be an invaluable resource for students, clinicians, and researchers for many years to come."
--Gerard J. Connors, PhD, Senior Research Scientist, Research Institute on Addictions, University at Buffalo
"This two-volume handbook, despite its length, is a great read! Topics are covered in scholarly fashion; each chapter provides a comprehensive treatment and provides classic and current references, yet each is well-organized and accessible. These volumes do a great job of summarizing complex literatures and promise to become go-to reference material for students and researchers alike."
--Kate B. Carey, PhD, Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences, Brown University School of Public Health & Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies
