"This is the most comprehensive dual diagnosis textbook I've read. Two things in particular appealed to me. Firstly, it is set out for easy reference in five parts... The second thing that struck me as valuable is the way the book has something for everyone.
General substance misuse staff and those in mental health will derive great benefit from the book. If you're a specialist in dual diagnosis, I think you will too.
It may be short in detail for some readers but as an overview of the subject, for students and qualified alike, it delivers."
