Substance misuse is a dramatically increasing problem in all ages of the population, whether legal or illicit. All healthcare professionals will come into contact with patients who have problems with substance misuse and the aim of this book is to provide the reader with information that may help confirm or exclude the possibility of substance misuse in an individual. The book contains enough concise and authoritative information to satisfy the healthcare professional, and has been written in such a way as to make the information accessible to the layman. It also contains summaries of current legislation within the United Kingdom and a means of highlighting the problem of classification of prescribed and non-prescribed drugs.
