The Treatment of Opioid Dependence

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.

About the Authors

Eric C. Strain, M.D., and Maxine L. Stitzer, Ph.D., are professors in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

Reviews

"The clinical expertise of the authors is reflected in the detailed, yet highly practical, information presented."

- Robert C. Wolf - Annals of Pharmacotherapy

"Incredibly thorough and well organized... the first resource to refer to for anyone with any questions or interest in the treatment of opioid dependence."

- Steve C. Lee - Doody's Book Review Service

"This book is a mine of information and is extensively referenced... the single best book I have read on the treatment of opioid dependence and I have no hesitation in recommending it."

- Michael J. A. K. Kelleher - British Journal of Psychiatry

"A most welcome update of the 1999, Methadone Treatment of Opioid Dependence."

- Robert Maslansky - Journal of Addictive Diseases

"This well-written, easy-to-read book, with an unassuming title, is truly a tour-de-force. Analogous to the porridge in the Goldilocks story, it is neither too little nor too much, but just right!"

- Mark J. Albanese, M.D. - American Journal on Addictions
