Review:

"This definitive, timely book broadens the understanding of methamphetamine addiction and its treatment with in-depth coverage of such diverse topics as epidemiology, neuropharmacology, psychiatric consequences, psychosocial interventions, and pharmacological interventions. Grounded in research data and clinical experience, the book will be of immense value to practitioners, researchers, and students."--Arnold M. Washton, PhD, Executive Director, Recovery Options, New York, New York, and Princeton, New Jersey

"The field has clearly been lacking a comprehensive reference like this one. Contributors include foremost experts, who offer up-to-date, authoritative presentations. This information should be widely disseminated among treatment professionals as we confront this grave addiction that affects so many Americans."--Thomas R. Kosten, MD, Jay H. Waggoner Chair and Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine

"This skillfully crafted volume belongs in the library of every addictions professional. Among the book's unique contributions is the way it addresses methamphetamine at multiple levels of analysis, from cellular effects and community impacts to best practices in treatment and prevention. It also goes a long way in correcting popular misconceptions. Given its coherence and breadth, this book is well suited to be a supplemental text in graduate-level courses on addictions. Students will benefit greatly from the integrated coverage of biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors in methamphetamine addiction and its treatment."--Meredith Hanson, DSW, Professor and Director, Doctoral Program in Social Work, Fordham University Graduate School of Social Service



"Among the many strengths of the book is its ability to provide a message of hope despite acknowledging the impact of methamphetamine addiction and the obstacles to its successful treatment. Eschewing the sensationalism often found in media coverage of methamphetamine, Methamphetamine Addiction relies instead on evidence-based scholarship that is frequently discussed in the context of other drug 'epidemics'....A comprehensive, authoritative review of methamphetamine's effects from synapse to society. It is an outstanding reference for psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and other addiction treatment providers who encounter methamphetamine dependence in clinical practice. Above all, the book provides a message of hope to all patients, their families, clinicians, and policy makers that treatment is not futile and recovery is possible." (Journal of Psychiatric Practice 2009-05-06)

"Contribute[s] excellent reviews of the methamphetamine problem by experts in the abuse field." (PsycCRITIQUES 2009-05-06)

"Dr. John M. Roll and coeditors have captured the essence of methamphetamine, from its basic neuropharmacologic mechanisms to the nightmarish consequences of this drug for community systems. The comprehensive expertise the editors and contributors bring to this volume is impressive, spanning the fields of psychology; neurology; psychiatry; family, internal, and behavioral medicine; epidemiology; functional neuroimaging; multiple basic science disciplines; and the advocacy and legal realms. Skillfully compiled and eminently readable, this volume has utility not just for addiction clinicians, teachers, and researchers, but also for those in a variety of other academic disciplines. Content relevant to sociology, anthropology, and human behavior in general is digestible enough in this book for use at an undergraduate curriculum level, yet in-depth and literature-based enough to support post-graduate work. Psychiatry residency, addictions medicine, and psychiatry fellowship programs may all want to take a look at this book for use in graduate medical education....Well-organized and thorough....If you are interested in understanding the methamphetamine 'big picture,' this book is for you." (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2009-05-06)

"The medical consequences of methamphetamine use are covered in a comprehensive and accessible way, addressing all major systems affected in addition to implications of the disinhibiting effect of the drug leading to accidents and high-risk sexual activity. Psychiatric presentations are also adequately covered, including psychotic symptoms and comorbidity. The neuro-cognitive deficits demonstrated in longer-term users of methamphetamine and their impact on treatment success is a common theme throughout the book." (British Journal of Psychiatry 2010-09-03)
