The author indicates that the book is intended for students, clinicians, and patients and their families. While the writing style is crisp and clear, the material is at times so complex that it is difficult to imagine laypersons truly grasping it. The book is offered in six parts.

Part 1 is a general overview of treating addictions. Part II is an examination of addiction and issues of self or ego functions. Part III is devoted to illustrating the self-medication hypothesis of addiction. Part IV is a more explicit exploration of the psychodynamics of substance abuse, and here the author...
