Here's what the Immediate Past-President of ASAM said about the resource:
"ASAM recognizes that knowledge about addiction has multiplied so rapidly over the past few years that it is difficult to ascertain which information is clinically essential. Essentials of Addiction Medicine was created to address this dilemma. The editors of Essentials served as "translators" by selecting and condensing information from Principles of Addiction Medicine so as to make it accessible to primary care physicians and other caregivers who wish to identify, manage and appropriately refer patients suffering from addictive disorders."
Louis E. Baxter, Sr., MD, FASAM
