Problems of Addiction and Habituation

Problems of Addiction and Habituation This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This book consists of 15 articles and 2 discussions by various authors. Most of the articles review work already published elsewhere. The subjects of various articles cover a wide range, from the development of experimental neuroses in animals to the factors relative to social and psychiatric management of addiction in the United States. Tiebout makes an eloquent plea for direct treatment of the symptom of alcoholism; Masserman attempts to review an enormous mass of work on the effects of drugs on various forms of behavior in animals; Speer defends the use of severely repressive legal measures in the management of narcotic addiction; while Bowman favors a permissive system for the management of addiction in the United States, similar to the plan developed by the New York Academy of Medicine. As might be expected, the quality of the various articles is uneven. The book should be of most value to persons http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
