Interventions for Amphetamine Misuse is a practical, useable guide for health professionals working in the field. It details the physical and psychological problems associated with the drug's abuse, provides a detailed and evidence-based assessment of the interventions currently in use worldwide, and offers a broad historical and cultural overview. The book includes detailed case studies to illustrate the experiences of a wide range of countries including the UK, Japan, Australia, Thailand, and the USA with the aim of drawing together the evidence and reaching a consensus.
This important book also offers an overview of the changes in legislation that have reflected growing concern regarding the evolution in the way that the substance has been formulated. Discussed are the illicit use of amphetamine type substances and the associated dangers and concerns with the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and the drug's use in the suppression of appetite.
