Using the popular harm-reduction model, ADDICTION TREATMENT covers the biological, psychological, and social aspects of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. Through a number of first-person narratives about the experience of addiction, students will discover a realism and depth not commonly found in textbooks. In addition, the authors include student-friendly topics, such as the case against so-called underage drinking laws, to draw students into the material and illustrate the importance of reducing harm within the biopsychological framework that ties the text together.

Diane Rae Davis, Ph.D., is a professor in the School of Social Work and Human Services at Eastern Washington University. She teaches a variety of substance misuse and practice courses in the MSW program and has researched and written extensively on addiction and the recovery process. Current research includes an online survey for women in recovery from compulsive gambling.
