There are many excellent materials on the subject of drug abuse and mental illness but many of these materials can be too laborious to be read by busy clinicians or simply too difficult to understand by people new to the field of healthcare. Other materials can be just the opposite - being so oversimplified that the accuracy and science gets lost or overly minimized. Dr. Stanford's book on Foundations in Behavioral Pharmacology has found the perfect balance. The overall objective of the book is to help the healthcare provider gain a working understanding of the neurobiological and pharmacological factors that contribute to drug addiction and mental disorders.
