The Mental Health–Substance Use series provides clear guidance for professionals on this complex and increasingly recognised field. It concentrates on the concerns, dilemmas and concepts that impact on the life and well-being of affected individuals and those close to them, as well as the future direction of practice, education, research, services, intervention, and treatment.

This final book in the series provides the basis of best practice for offering effective interventions to affected individuals and their families, exploring the effects of various substances, both controlled and proscribed, and the impact of substance use in schizophrenia. Therapeutic interventions such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and dialectical behaviour therapy are discussed, as are relapse prevention and the specific needs of groups such as older people and young adults. Associated topics such as individuals within the criminal justice system, and brain injury (the symptoms of which often mimic mental health–substance use) complete this highly comprehensive guide.

The volumes in this series are designed to challenge concepts and stimulate debate, exploring all aspects of the development in treatment, intervention and care response, and the adoption of research-led best practice. They are essential reading for mental health and substance use professionals, students and educators.
