About the book

Drug addiction represents a major public health concern which cuts across and impacts all segments of society. While our understanding of the neurobiological, behavioral, environmental, and social contexts which contribute the development of drug use and addiction continues to grow, significant inroads into combatting addiction will only be made when this knowledge is translated into clinical practice.

The purpose of this book is to examine recent advances in those areas most relevant to clinical care of drug addicted individuals. Review chapters and research articles will examine issues relevant to diagnosis such as dual diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and the evolution of diagnostic scope and criteria. Current evidence based psychotherapeutic, pharmacotherapeutic and other innovative approaches for treating addiction will be addressed. Special attention will also be directed towards important issues which span both the diagnosis and treatment of addictions including, cultural competency, ethics, healthcare economics, public policy, and special populations and contexts.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Mia Vulovic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
