Addiction for Nurses is a comprehensive textbook for students, explaining the role of the nurse at each stage of intervention. Early chapters approach the subject from sociological, historical, and cultural perspectives, covering significant topics such as the nature of addiction, its social context, and addiction theory. The book then presents vital information about each of the main areas of addiction (nicotine, alcohol, opiates, cannabis, psychostimulants, and hallucinogens), with clinical and practical guidance on recognition, assessment, and treatment intervention strategies.

Reviews:

"In this textbook for students, Rassool (addiction and mental health, U. de So Paulo and Federal U. of Minas Gerais, Brazil) describes the role of nurses at each stage of intervention when working with individuals with addictions. He discusses the nature of addiction, its social context, causes, and models of care and change, then addictions to nicotine, alcohol, and various drugs, and recognition, assessment, and treatment strategies. Other chapters cover dealing with emergencies, blood-borne viruses, harm reduction, and working with populations like minorities and those with special needs." (Book News Inc., February 2011)

About the Author:

Hussein Rassool is Professor of Addiction and Mental Health, Department of Psychiatric Nursing and Human Sciences, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil, and author of previous texts on Addiction nursing, Dual diagnosis, and Substance use and abuse.
