Product description

From the description on the back of the book:
"Recent years have seen a growth in the numbers of studies of substance abuse and dependence in adolescence, focusing on prevalence, risk factors, comorbidity, course and outcome. At the same time, numerous prevention and intervention strategies have been developed. Substance Abuse and Dependence in Adolescence presents a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art empirical and practical information on this topic.
Cecilia A. Essau, along with an eminent group of international researchers and clinicians, summarises the most recent empirical findings and state-of-the-art knowledge on substance abuse and dependence in adolescence and includes comprehensive information on prevention and treatment. Substance Abuse and Dependence in Adolescence contains:
* general issues related to substance use disorders
* epidemiology, comorbidity, course, outcome and risk factors
* the prevention and intervention of substance abuse and dependence
* a discussion of progress and unresolved issues in substance use disorders
* recommendations for future studies in the field.
Substance Abuse and Dependence in Adolescence will be an invaluable resource for students, researchers, and other professionals working in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, paediatrics, social work and other mental health professions."
