Paperback / softback Publication Date: 13/12/2005

  $69.00
The successor to Strain and Stitzer's Methadone Treatment for Opioid Dependence (Johns Hopkins, 1999), this expanded and updated volume reflects new developments in treatment protocols.

Methadone is still the most widely used medication for the treatment of opioid dependence, and the authors provide an extensive section on methadone treatment. Three chapters cover the pharmacology and clinical use of buprenorphine as well as the latest research on Naltrexone, Clonidine, and Lofexidine. The volume also includes chapters on pain and prescription opioids as well as medication-free treatment and medically supervised alternatives to opioid substitute treatments, including withdrawal.

The Treatment of Opioid Dependence will be a valuable resource for methadone counselors, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, mental health nurses, and addiction counselors, as well as physicians interested in office-based buprenorphine treatment.
