This well-respected text on substance abuse takes a comprehensive look at chemical dependency, covering the most recent issues in the areas of epidemiology, etiology, substance abuse policy, and treatment. Chemical Dependency: A Systems Approach, Third Edition, looks at substance abuse from a systems perspective, making it particularly appropriate for social work students who are accustomed to a person-in-environment approach. The text presents all major theories of addiction, as well as the major physiological and psychological results of substance abuse, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Coverage of the latest developments in treatment and research incorporates the most recent findings on genetic causes of alcoholism. This edition includes an up-to-date discussion of the most recent trends in designer drugs to help explain the considerable frequency of changes in which drug use patterns occur.
