9780123706324: Stress and Addiction: Biological and Psychological Mechanisms

Stress is one of the most commonly reported precipitants of drug use and is considered the number one cause of relapse to drug abuse. For the past several decades, there have been a number of significant advances in research focusing on the neurobiological and psychosocial aspects of stress and addiction; along with this growth came the recognition of the importance of understanding the interaction of biological and psychosocial factors that influence risk for initiation and maintenance of addictive behaviors. Recent research has started to specifically focus on understanding the nature of how stress contributes to addiction - this research has influenced the way we think about addiction and its etiological factors and has produced exciting possibilities for developing effective intervention strategies; to date there has been no available book to integrate this literature. This highly focused work integrates and consolidates available knowledge to provide a resource for researchers and practitioners and for trainees in multiple fields. It will help neuroscientists, social scientists, and mental health providers in addressing the role of stress in addictive behaviors; the volume is also useful as a reference book for those conducting research in this field. It integrates theoretical and practical issues related to stress and addiction. It includes case studies illustrating where an emotional state and addictive behavior represent a prominent feature of the clinical presentation. It offers cross-disciplinary coverage with contributions by scientists and practitioners from multiple fields, including psychology, neuroscience, neurobiology, and medicine.

Review:

"In summary, Stress and Addiction: Biological and Psychological Mechanisms is a useful book that provides an overview of the research on stress and addiction in a concise format that motivated readers can use as a starting point to track down more in-depth information in diverse areas. It works best as a reference resource. The writers of the individual chapters are knowledgeable and present research findings clearly. ... The book provides a balanced view in terms of presenting conflicting research findings, and it discusses limitations of instruments and study designs. This book achieves its goal of bringing together biological and psychological findings on the overlap of stress and addiction." --Michael Weaver, Virginia Commonwealth University, in SRNT (Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco) Newsletter May / June 2007, Volume 13, Number 2
