This invaluable book assists primary care physicians in managing patients with addictive illness. Written by experts in the field, the text is logically organized and key information is easily accessible. The introductory section offers the reader important background and rationale for evaluating and treating addiction in primary care. Following a useful presentation of addiction "basics" (i.e., definitions, neurobiology, genetics, and the disease model), the majority of the book focuses on helping the physician gain insight and develop practical skills that can be readily implemented. A wealth of clinical assessment tools is provided, and the underlying psychosocial processes common to all forms of addiction are discussed. Both pharmacologic interventions and nonpharmalogic modalities are clearly outlined. Of particular note are specific cognitive-behavioral and motivational strategies that can be administered in an office-based setting. The role of community-based recovery support systems is considered as well. Since a complete understanding of why and when to refer is critical to the management of this often life-threatening condition, criteria for referral are detailed. Bulleted clinical "pearls" further aid the reader in gaining insight into treating this difficult patient population. Case presentations complete the book by reinforcing management concepts and illustrating the most frequently encountered types of addicted patients found in primary care.Table of contents Spectrum of addiction.- The addicted patient.- Clinical assessment.- Pharmacologic office-based interventions.- Nonpharmacologic office-based interventions: cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing.- Case presentations and algorithms for management.- Appendix 1: into action: putting cognitive-behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing into practice.- Appendix 2: sample informed consent and medication management and treatment agreements
