Separating myth from fact, this authoritative work reviews the breadth of current knowledge about methamphetamine addiction and describes the most promising available treatment approaches. Leading experts present state-of-the-art information on the effects of methamphetamine on the brain, body, mental health, and behavior. Psychosocial and pharmacological treatment strategies are critically evaluated, including approaches to treating dually diagnosed clients. Written in a concise, accessible style, the volume emphasizes that recovery is possible, despite the significant challenges the drug poses. The authors identify key avenues for collaboration among clinical, public health, and other professionals.
