''Cogent and comprehensive....The text offers an integrated biopsychosocial orientation that is as sensitive to the latest areas of 'nontraditional' addiction (e.g., gambling and sexual risk behavior) as it is to ethnocultural issues. Practitioners, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers will find this text to be an invaluable resource.''
—Peter M. Monti, PhD, Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Brown University

''This superb revision of a landmark volume breaks new ground by expanding the scope of addictive behaviors beyond substance misuse to include gambling, high-risk sexual behavior, and weight-related disorders. ...Researchers and practitioners in clinical disciplines and public health professions will find it to be an invaluable resource for advancing knowledge and developing evidence-based interventions, which rest upon and follow from sound measurement practices.''
—Jalie A. Tucker, PhD, MPH, School of Public Health, University of Alabama at Birmingham

''Current 'hot topics' in the field of addiction treatment are covered in a highly comprehensive and reader-friendly way. Given the pervasiveness of addictive behaviors, I recommend this book to all mental health professionals and educators.'' —S. Lala Ashenberg Straussner, DSW, CAS, New York University School of Social Work; Founding Editor, Journal of Social Work Practice in the Addictions

''A great resource for any professional involved in the treatment, research, and education of addictive behaviors.''
