Series: SW 393R 23-Treatment of Chemical Dependency. Paperback: 640 pages. This is a tremendously great book on chemical dependency, however, the quality of the book and its construction are definitely lacking. I could not believe the flimsiness of the cover after the price that I paid for it. It is a soft cover, and is very thin.

Adding to the book’s usefulness and relevance, Doweiko also covers topics not usually discussed in other substance abuse texts, including: abuse of anabolic steroids; inhalants; many of the forms of infectious disease associated with substance abuse; how the war on drugs has actually contributed to the problem of substance abuse/addiction in this country; the relationship between substance abuse and many infectious diseases; and the latest information on the medical marijuana debate.

Critique of Concepts of Chemical Dependency by Doweiko. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 12 years ago. This book gives a solid overview of chemicals of use/abuse, focusing particularly upon alcohol. The one caveat I have about recommending it unconditionally is that the author seems to interweave his bias along with the factual material, such that it is sometimes hard to tease out the actual facts from the propaganda.

What amount of alcohol consumed is generally accepted by health care professionals as an amount that will produce a physical dependency? 16 ounces of 80 to 100 proof liquor or 11 to 15 twelve ounce cans of beer each day for two to three weeks. Page 46). What amount of adults reportedly engaged in at least one period of binge drinking in the preceding 30 days? 15%. (Page 47). What is the most important symptom that indicates an AUD?

Completely rewritten from cover to cover, the contemporary new 8th edition of CONCEPTS OF CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY provides comprehensive coverage and the latest information on a full spectrum of substance use disorders and the compounds commonly abused. Topics include: the abuse of and addiction to alcohol; how the active agent in marijuana, THC, affects neural growth and development; the emerging body of evidence suggesting a relationship between marijuana abuse and psychotic disorders; the emerging body of evidence suggesting that marijuana is not as benign as it was thought to be even a few years ago; and updated information on the abuse of cough syrups, a trend that has evolved in adolescent substance abusers in the past decade. Adding to the book's usefulness and relevance, Doweiko also covers topics not usually discussed in other substance abuse texts, including: abuse of anabolic steroids; inhalants; many of the forms of infectious disease associated with substance abuse; how the "war on drugs" has actually contributed to the problem of substance abuse/addiction in this country; the relationship between substance abuse and many infectious diseases; and the latest information on the "medical marijuana" debate. Providing a comprehensive overview of the problems of substance abuse and addiction, students report that they appreciate the author's balanced approach in contrast to a tendency to "preach" to the reader that "drugs are bad for you". Student feedback indicates that they value the clear and detailed information provided, allowing the student to form their own opinion about the compound(s) being discussed in each chapter.

As I read this textbook, I wondered if anyone proof-read it at all. I also wondered if professional reviewers evaluated the concepts for accuracy.

I agree with others, who have noted a lack of professionalism; the author asserts his own opinions throughout as though they were fact.

I also agree with those who found the footnotes to be pointless and annoying.

I was concerned by errors in basic information. For example, from my previous learning of operant conditioning, it appears that the author does not understand positive and negative reinforcement. He makes the mistake of referring to negative reinforcement in the following way (pp. 376-377): "Behaviors that result in a (c) decrease in pleasure or (d) increase in discomfort are said to be a negative reinforcer for that response." This is something that anyone who has taken a basic psychology class should know is an error.

It bothers me that this textbook has me second-guessing what it teaches, but it is currently selling for nearly $200. Schools need to stop selecting it as required reading.

This book is full of typos, sentence fragments, and run-on sentences. I can hardly believe it is a "teacher's copy"; it would drive any intelligent person crazy.
The material covered is unclear and does not sufficiently explain the material.

Used for class instead of purchasing the newest addition. Covered the same topics but the chapters were scrambled a bit, not hard to find. Only one or two topics that are in the new editions weren't in this one. Great way to save money.

This text is in-depth and provides an understanding of the difficulties and the psyche of an addicted individual. It also establishes the effects on loved ones and lifework.

This is a tremendously great book on chemical dependency, however, the quality of the book and its construction are definitely lacking. I could not believe the flimsiness of the cover after the price that I paid for it. It is a soft cover, and is very thin. After opening it once, it immediately stayed open. There are many typographical errors in it with occasional words missing which makes it annoying to read occasionally. Now that I have that out of the way, as I said, it is a great book on the subject at hand. 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. If you ever have a chance to purchase this book in hardback, do it because the softback is just not worth the money paid for it. I do NOT understand why the book is so expensive aside from the fact that textbooks are not printed in the same numbers as bestselling novels, so the price is inflated to pay for the printing. It sure did not spend much time on the editing floor, checking for mistakes! However, and this is a BIG however, if you want to learn about this subject, this is the book to get. Just do yourself a favor, and one for everyone else who must buy it, and write to the publisher to complain about the quality of the binding, cover, and typographical errors.

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. Consequently, the reader is often forced to reread and choose which word makes sense. Punctuation is also a problem. The editorial gaffes make this book a frustrating read and take away the reader's focus from the material covered. The editorial team should either be horsewhipped or, at the very least, called out for their incompetence.

The book itself was fairly good but the index was less than stellar. As a graduate student working on a second Master's-this one in Substance Abuse- it's fair to say I've used a lot of textbooks. Too many topics covered in the text were not listed in the index, making quick retrieval of information impossible.
By getting this on Amazon I was able to also purchase the soft copy for pretty cheap which really help out with school. I am going to look for all my texts on Amazon first!
