"This book is a well balanced, easy to read book and will be of interest to all Health Care Professionals, but may be especially informative to student nurses in helping them gain insight into the complex nature of substance misuse" Druglink
“This book is an especially useful primer and resource for all nursing and healthcare specialties, but is an essential text for psychiatric nursing students and practitioners. Few books are available on this topic and none have represented the entire clinical issue as well.” Doody’s Rating 4–star
