Description

Addiction among older adults is a hidden and hushed problem. Signs and symptoms of alcohol or medication abuse can easily be mistaken for conditions related to ageing. And even when friends or family members recognize signs of addiction, they often discount the need for intervention or treatment. For older people struggling with alcohol and drug misuse and abuse, Aging and Addiction is a much-needed resource. The authors, both experts in the field of addiction treatment and intervention, provide a respectful, definitive guide for recognizing and addressing substance abuse among older adults. Key topics include: understanding the relationship between ageing and addiction, finding help for a loved one, and recognizing the treatment needs of older adults.
