The Addiction Casebook consists of 13 clinical cases that exemplify DSM-5 addiction diagnoses commonly encountered in clinical practice. Written in a colloquial, engaging, and easy-to-understand manner, the book complements and brings alive substance abuse textbooks (such as Galanter's The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment: Fourth Edition) by providing hands-on experience with real-life situations and updated information relating to DSM-5 diagnoses. The Casebook lays out realistic and effective strategies to diagnose and treat patients with addictions ranging from alcohol and caffeine to gambling and problematic Internet use and includes multiple-answer questions at the end of each chapter designed to strengthen readers' knowledge. The volume, which calls on the experience and clinical wisdom of three generations of addiction specialists, also elucidates the intersection of addiction and other psychiatric diagnoses. The contemporary, topical suggestions found in The Addiction Casebook will be useful to general psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, family practitioners, internists, pediatricians, medical students, and allied professionals alike, and the volume editors' and chapter authors' wit and accessible writing style make reading this book a pleasure to read.
