This thorough, comprehensive book reviews our current understanding of addictive disorders, including core biology, clinical presentation, and treatment. It also is designed to examine drug abuse and its relationship to, and effect on, a variety of psychiatric and medical illnesses. It is intended for researchers, addiction specialists, psychiatrists, psychologists, pharmacologists, social workers, drug counselors, and trainees as well as healthcare workers who deal with patients with addictions in their clinical practices." Michael Easton, Doody's Review Service
We know so little, and we need to know so much! This book is long overdue, and it offers a pioneering start on a topic that is vital to so many. This volume presents a template for starting to understand how profoundly substance use and parenting have mutual influence. Some of the chapters provide education and advice to professionals who work with parents who are addicted and with the children of those parents. Some chapters present more of a 'big think,' helping the reader to understand how social forces, genetics, and the variety of pharmaceuticals can have such a profound influence on our lives. Substance abuse complicates parenting; parenting complicates the substance user's life. This book addresses many questions and provides suggestions on how readers can grapple with and possibly overcome these problems. * James L. Sorensen, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, UCSF at San Francisco General Hospital *
Substance abuse during motherhood is, unfortunately, an increasing problem in our modern world. The desperate self-medication is dangerous for the baby and also for the mother. This extremely important book offers new understanding of the vulnerabilities of these mothers and babies and opens up therapeutic windows to help and treat not only present mothers and babies but also future generations, too. We all need to carefully read this book! * Tuula Tamminen, Professor of Child Psychiatry, University of Tampere School of Medicine and Chair of the Health Research Council, Academy of Finland *
