Themes include prevention initiatives, program descriptions, the special needs of different populations, policy perspectives framed within an anti-oppression standpoint, and the emerging topic of problem gambling. This varied collection is an indispensable resource for students and practitioners working in the fields of social work and addictions studies.

FEATURES:
