Description:

Drugs in Perspective is a compilation of useful reports, case studies, and literature on drugs and alcohol--their use, abuse, and addiction. Backed by more than 30 years of clinical experience with clients, Dr. Richard Fields provides a comprehensive framework to understand substance abuse. The 9th edition includes ample case studies, up-to-date information on treatment and recovery, and a new chapter dedicated to relapse, prevention, and mindfulness. The Connect course for this offering includes SmartBook, an adaptive reading and study experience which guides students to master, recall, and apply key concepts while providing automatically-graded assessments.
