Product description


"This text is a detailed look at chemical dependency from a biological, scientific, social, and humanistic perspective. It will make you question what you thought you knew about the world of addictions, and open the door to the possibility of issues not always considered." "I believe that all healthcare professionals should have access to this text as it is the first reference I reach for due to the comprehensive coverage of topics and the reliance I have on the research within that it has been researched and updated."

Absolutely falling apart so that was unfortunate since I need it the rest of the semester. I really hope I’m not fined at the end for the condition I received it in.
