The articles in this collection, reprinted from American Psychological Association journals, describe a wide range of biological, psychological, and social approaches to researching and treating addictive behaviors. The effects of addictive behaviors range from ill health and social and family problems to economicand legal troubles. Psychologists' roles in mediating the negative effectsof addiction include researching the effects of drug action, studying the epidemiology and etiology of drug and alcohol abuse, designing prevention programs, understanding the trajectory of substance abuse and family risk factors, screening and assessment, finding the best models of treatment, and understanding the needs of specific populations.
