The Pocket Guide to Drugs and Health is now available.

In this comprehensive guide the authors present the health effects of each of the major drugs.

Each chapter presents information at a glance on dependence, withdrawal, toxicity, mortality, effects of drugs upon each major organ system, and psychiatric morbidities. There are also chapters addressing injecting drug use, and the treatment of drug dependence.

Published by Silverback Publishing, The Pocket Guide is an essential reference for medical practitioners, physicians in training, nurses and treatment providers.

This pocket guide is a goldmine of information on psychoactive drugs, their effects and how to manage patients who are using them. It is beautifully presented to make it extremely easy to find what one is looking for. No clinician should be without it.”

Robert West, Emeritus Professor, University College London
