Drugs; Addiction; and the Brain (PDF) explores the cellular; molecular; and neurocircuitry systems in the brain that are responsible for drug addiction.

The ebook provides a thorough overview of the pathophysiology of the disease. The information delivered will be useful for drug abuse treatment providers; neuroscientists in the field of addiction; and undergraduate and postgraduate students. They are interested in learning the varied effects of drugs of abuse on the brain.
