American Psychiatric Pub, 2008 - Medical - 752 pages
A trusted and authoritative resource through three editions, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse Treatment has been fully updated to present the most current scientific and clinical information on a wide range of substance use disorders, from tobacco and alcohol to methamphetamine and "club drug" abuse. It is a comprehensive guide to treatment written at a level appropriate to both experienced and new clinicians, reflecting the expertise of leading addiction specialists in psychiatry and allied fields. With most chapters extensively revised by new authors, it incorporates the latest biomedical research findings as well as recent advances in treatment modalities and the growth of pharmacotherapies.
The text offers a comprehensive view of the basic science and psychology underlying addiction as well as extensive coverage of all treatment approaches and specialty topics, such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Coverage of therapeutic issues focuses on goals assessment and outcome research, emphasizing the knowledge needed to treat patients' primary addictive problems by overcoming their defensiveness and denial through empathic engagement and maintaining a willingness to persevere through the vicissitudes of recovery. Practical, treatment-oriented material is presented in more quick reference tables than before to make the book an even more useful clinical resource, and lists of recommended readings have been enhanced. Among the new edition's features: • Separate chapters on the biology and clinical management for each of the drug categories in order to reflect new understandings of mechanisms of drug action.• A more detailed description of the nature of buprenorphine and its role in treating opioid addiction, focusing particularly on its clinical efficacy and recommendations for use in office-based opioid treatment for special populations.• New extensive coverage on cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational enhancement, and contingency management.• New research on 12-step programs and their role in addiction treatment, including an evidence-based review of what is currently understood about AA-related change and outcome research on self-help programs.• A new chapter devoted to special concerns posed by abusers of prescription drugs -- Vicodin, OxyContin, Ritalin, and others.• A new chapter addressing special considerations in the treatment and prevention of substance abuse in gay, lesbian, and transgender persons.
Designed to serve clinicians in practice as well as researchers concerned with addiction, the textbook is also appropriate for trainees in psychiatry, general medicine, and other health fields. It is an invaluable source of treatment options for anyone concerned with the problems posed by patients with substance abuse disorders.

MAD DOG aka PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD 2020 TRIAL DATE April 8, 2014
Punyamurtula Kishore, M.D. and three other defendants will go on trial in April 8. 2014 for allegedly bilking MassHealth of almost $20 million, in what Coakley’s office calls an “intricate scheme” involving drug testing, sober homes, and his Preventive Medicine Associates (PMA).
According to Coakley, Kishore used various bribes or kickbacks to persuade sober house owners to require residents to submit urine tests at least three times per week. The tests were performed by PMA’s office laboratories, then billed to MassHealth, which pays $100 to $200 for such screens. Also charged in the case were Carl Smith, manager of New Horizon House, John Coughlin, president of Gianna’s House, and Thomas Leonard, part owner and manager of Marshall House—all for receiving kickbacks.
MAD DOG a.k.a Punymurtula Kidhore MD and Lil Dog a.k.a. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. are responsible for the death of Eleanor Clark of Weston , Massachusetts.
Just look at what happen to James Clark .
James Clark was a client at the same address where the Director/Manager Carl Smith resided at ,50 Draper Street in Dorchester MA. Carl Smith is suppose to be a state licensed Mental Health Clinician , If so , than why did he discharge James Clark ? James clark never tested postive for a toxicology screen for illegal or prescription drugs, than why was he discharged ?
He was discharged for behavioral and attitude problems that were related to his psychiatric and substance abuse diagnosis. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. should have been able to detect that this man had psychological problems and referred him for treatment to MAD DOG aka Punyamurtula K...ishore's Neurological Clinic for treatment and to help James Clark get back on his psychiatric medication. Instead , Carl Smith discharged him and the following day , James Clark murdered his 81 year old grandmother Eleanor Clark in Weston Massachusetts .
Punyamurtula Kishore MD aka MAD DOG Millionaire referred James Clark to Carl Smith's Program New Horizon House after James Clark was Discharged from St. Elizabeths Hospital's S.E.C.A.P.'s Detoxification unit. Punyamurtula Kishore aka MAD DOG had a Contract with Carl Smith to provide New Horizon clients with Medical and Mental health Treatment. No treatment was provided except for toxicology screens . Carl Smith collected James Clark's program fee and MAD DOG Kishore billed his insurance company . Carl Smith and Dr. Kishore donot care about thier clients or patients . The only thing they cared about was making money at the expense of HUMAN MISERY !!!!!!!!
