Study Guide to Substance Abuse Treatment is a question-and-answer companion that allows you to evaluate your mastery of the subject matter as you progress through The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment, Fourth Edition. The Study Guide is made up of 292 questions divided into 49 individual quizzes of 4-9 questions each that correspond to chapters in the Textbook. Questions are followed by an Answer Guide that references relevant text (including the page number) in the Textbook to allow quick access to needed information. Each answer is accompanied by a discussion that not only addresses the correct response but also explains why other responses are not correct.

The Study Guide's companion, the fourth edition of The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment has been fully updated to present the most current scientific and clinical information on a wide range of substance use disorders, from tobacco and alcohol to methamphetamine and “club drug” abuse. The text offers a comprehensive view of the basic science and psychology underlying addiction as well as extensive coverage of all treatment approaches and specialty topics. Highlights of this new edition include chapters on the biology and clinical management for each of the drug categories; new material on the role of buprenorphine in treating opioid addiction; extensive coverage of cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement, and contingency management; and new research on the role of 12-step programs in addiction treatment.
