Throughout history, and across cultures, alcohol has affected the fabric of society through abuse and addiction, contributed to violence and accidents, and caused injuries and health issues. In Alcohol: Its History, Pharmacology, and Treatment, part of Hazelden's Library of Addictive Drugs Series, Cheryl Cherpitel, DrPH, and Mark Rose, MA, examine the nature and extent of alcohol use in the United States, current treatment models and demographics, and the biology of alcohol, addiction, and treatment.

In separating fact from fiction, Cherpitel and Rose give context for understanding the alcohol problem by tracing its history and different uses over time, then offer an in-depth look at
  • the latest scientific findings on alcohol's effects on individuals
  • the myths and realities of alcohol's impact on the mind
  • the societal impacts of alcohol abuse as a factor in violence and accidents
  • the pharmacology of pharmaceutical treatments for alcoholism
  • the history of treatment and current therapeutic treatment models
Thoroughly researched and highly readable, Alcohol offers a comprehensive understanding of medical, social, and political issues concerning this legal, yet potentially dangerous, drug.
