The book is suitable for a number of student needs. Great way to save money By Anastasia on Oct 19, Used for class instead of purchasing the newest addition. After opening it once, it immediately stayed open. The contents are fine. This book is so full of grammatical and spelling errors!
I perfer textbooks that are neutral and stick e ntirely to the facts. It is filled with errors of all types, repetitive words and phrases and deplorable grammar. I am not saying these things as a personal attack on anyone It is a soft cover, and is very thin.
But it is a good read and excellent. What do we mean when we say substance abuse and addiction? They did not differentiate Dependence versus Abuse. This book is so poorly written that I can't imagine why anyone would even publish it. I think professors are putting a lot of concentration on books and then turning around and getting the most up to date information from the internet. Much of the information is random, fairly meaningless and the way in which it is presented brings its accuracy and relevance into question.

It is a soft cover, and is very thin. Spell check was definitely not used and it is as if no one took the time to properly edit the book! The text can stand as a main source for college-level courses in addictions or chemical dependancy in the mental health health programs, and can be used as a college or stand-alone introduction to chemical dependancy and counseling.
The book itself was fairly good but the index was less than stellar By Egslone on Sep 25, The book itself was fairly good but the index was less than stellar.
Very disappointing. Would recommend just using the internet if needing information found in this book The lack of professionalism is shocking I expected the book to be in excellent condition.
Abuse of and Addiction to Benzodiazepines and Similar Agents. Looking thought the book I noted numerous grammar errors. Marines on Mar 01, This is an excellent book very detailed to what and how to do an Assessment and recomend Treatment for an Drug abuser.
Was there no proofreader? How it came to be chosen as a textbook is beyond my comprehension. One of the things that I like about it are that each chapter is very well organized and the chapters are arranged in a logical progression, though one can pick out any chapter and it will stand alone without reading prior chapters with the exception of having to read chapter one.
The authors believe that chemical dependency counseling is the only profession that treats substance abuse as a primary disorder and disease with its own causes, course, progression and complication.
They then focus on the principles of chemical abuse counseling, including treatment planning, the different schools of counseling, how to understand and manage relapse, and special populations.
It sure did not spend much time on the editing floor, checking for mistakes! Culpepper on May 09, I am appalled that this textbook was published with the lack of punctuation, improper grammar, and missing words.
Chronic Alcohol Abuse and Addiction. It makes me question the importance of providing a high level of educational material for college students versus profits But it is a good read and excellent.
Expensive as well. Not typical of what you would see in an 8th edition. It was the instructors manual for the book. Prevost on Feb 19, This is an amazingly unprofessional textbook in that there are so many, many, many words that are either left out or are placed next to one another where the writer, or editor, may have meant to come back and choose the correct word but never did.
However, considering it is a textbook, it too opinionated for my taste. Much of the information is random, fairly meaningless and the way in which it is presented brings its accuracy and relevance into question.
What do we mean when we say that someone is "addicted" to chemicals?
He'll reference studies but not explain at all what point he's trying to make. The book itself was fairly good but the index was less than stellar By Egslone on Sep 25, The book itself was fairly good but the index was less than stellar. The Process of Intervention. The medical model of chemical addiction Introduction Why do people abuse chemicals?
Morehart on Mar 14, Very informative textbook but hate the part where it tells you to look up a word in the glossary instead of giving a definition! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has these opinions of the book.ISBN - Get FREE shipping offers and dollar off coupons with our price comparison for Concepts of Chemical Dependency Book Only - ISBNBrand: Cengage Learning.
