Recommends it for: Students seeking advanced/graduate level text on substance and alcohol abuse
Recommended to Nick by: Required textbook
Textbook for Substance and Alcohol Abuse course in graduate social work program at Washington University in St. Louis. Very informative, very thorough, based on very current information. Clearly written with a very strong graphics emphasis for those who learn best verbally or visually or both. Not up to the standard of a Goodman & Gilman pharmacology text, but this book is for social workers and counselors seeking a medical approach to substance abuse, not medical students who are more the a ...more

Reading it for my CDP Exam in December. Very informative in a straight forward kind of way.
This is a really good book and easy to understand. Helps if you have some idea of how the brain works, but it's not required. Regardless of the profession you're in, it would be a good book to have a sense of how drugs and alcohol effect the brain as you're likely to come in contact with them somehow.
Great pharmacology book it gives you a complete knowledge on different drugs its history and its used today. This is the Guide or Bible for A&D Councelors
SO GOOD! SO GOOD! SO GOOD! ...coming from a neophyte CD counselor. I ate it right up. Of course, it's Dr. Inaba. How could it not be amazing?
I read the sixth edition and the author is the one of the foremost leaders in the world on the topic of psychoactive substances.
a textbook about the history of, and science behind, just about any drug which can be used. no political agendas or preaching.
A surprisingly crappy, badly written book that seems to be the go-to text for addictions field. Go figure.

Uber dense but really helpful. I think I might be the only person who actually read it though...
Premier book regarding drugs and yheir affects/effects. Still utilize constantly
Great information, but the highlighting makes it difficult to read.
