This is the most comprehensive book on methamphetamine ('crystal meth') for treatment providers and public health officials. It is the first volume to present 'the big picture' on methamphetamine use in the US, including its biological, psychological, and societal effects. This title provides insights and guidance to those working in clinical, research, and educational settings. It features two contributed chapters - one from a physician and the other from a counseling psychologist - that provide details on working compassionately and effectively with methamphetamine users in healthcare settings. It includes an all-encompassing bibliography on methamphetamine addiction.
