Substance and Behavioral Addictions : Concepts, Causes, and Cures, Hardback Book

Substance and Behavioral Addictions : Concepts, Causes, and Cures Hardback


Substance and Behavioral Addictions: Concepts, Causes, and Cures presents the concepts, etiology, assessment, prevention, and cessation of substance (tobacco, alcohol, other drugs, and food) and behavioral (gambling, Internet, shopping, love, sex, exercise, and work) addictions.

The text provides a novel and integrative appetitive motivation framework of addiction, while acknowledging and referencing multi-level influences on addiction, such as neurobiological, cognitive, and micro-social and macro-social/physical environmental.

The book discusses concurrent and substitute addiction, and offers prevention and treatment solutions, which are presented from a more integrative perspective than traditional presentations.

This is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, practitioners, and researchers.
