Addiction treatment centres in the UK combine medication, counselling and behaviour modification to tackle cravings and aid recovery, yet relapse rates remain alarmingly high. A practical, in-depth handbook, Nutrition and Addiction examines newly emerging concepts in the management of addiction. Leading researchers and experienced nutrition practitioners explore the underlying nutritional and biochemical factors involved in addictive behaviour, and the importance of nutrition in the prevention and management of addiction and its role in sustainable recovery.
Nutrition and Addiction is an up-to-date, fully referenced resource with a glossary and guide to drug terms. It is a useful guide for those with a basic understanding of nutrition, as well as for more experienced practitioners and health care professionals.
