PsychOnline feature: Clinical Manual of Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment

For the month of May PsychiatryOnline.org is featuring Clinical Manual of Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment, edited by Yifrah Kaminer, M.D., M.B.A., and Ken C. Winters, Ph.D.

Clinical Manual of Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment brings together extensive new research in the field of adolescent substance abuse. The majority (85%) of adolescents experiment with substances prior to graduating from high school, and more than 10% of youth are in need of a clinical intervention for their substance use. This volume serves as a valuable resource for psychiatrists, psychologists, family physicians, social workers, substance abuse specialists, public health officials and other clinicians as well as residents and students of psychology.

This manual provides updated, comprehensive, and clinically oriented information on the identification, assessment, prevention, and treatment of adolescents at risk for or with problems associated with substance abuse. Special emphasis is given to different psychosocial and pharmacological interventions as well as to the treatment of coexisting psychiatric disorders.

You can access the Book of the Month from the PsychiatryOnline.org homepage, scroll to the bottom of the page to find Book of the Month. From the Health Sciences Library website select Find Articles> Databases> and select PsyhchiatryOnline from the drop down menu (or browse by letter or title).
