Nutrition and Addiction is an up-to-date, fully referenced resource with a glossary and guide to drug terms. It is a useful guide for those with a basic understanding of nutrition, as well as for more experienced practitioners and health care professionals.
Essential reading for: carers, clinicians, practitioners and therapists working in addiction and mental health within the public, private and voluntary sectors, nutritionists and dietitians, students on nutrition-related courses.
