HRI Senior Scientist is Lead Editor of Influential Guide to Addiction Treatment

The volume and complexity of addiction research can be challenging for healthcare providers to navigate when determining best treatment practices for individuals with addictive disorders.

A new book, co-edited by HRI Senior Scientist and Peter Boris Chair in Addiction Research at McMaster University, James MacKillop, will help treatment professionals arrive at solutions more quickly.

Book cover - Integrating Psychological and Pharmacological Treatments for Addictive Disorders

The book covers a comprehensive range of addictive disorders, including alcohol, tobacco, opioid, stimulant and cannabis addiction, as well as gambling disorder, dual diagnosis, and co-morbid psychopathology.

Preliminary reviews from the medical community have praised the book as an invaluable resource for a range of professionals, from early-career practitioners to seasoned experts. Medical experts anticipate that Integrating Psychological and Pharmacological Treatments for Addictive Disorders will advance addiction treatment and empower primary care physicians to better support patients suffering from alcohol and drug addiction.
