Methamphetamine Use: Clinical and Forensic Aspects

by Errol Yudko et al


  • Reviews all literature on methamphetamine to provide an interdisciplinary single-source text
  • Advises forensic psychologists in their expert witnessing regarding the behavioral effects of methamphetamine
  • Includes a chapter on ecstasy and presents similarities and differences of this increasingly popular drug
  • Presents the most current treatment modalities for MA addiction
  • Addresses MA use in the Middle East
  • Cites the important cases, articles, and statistics of which anyone working in the forensic aspects of MA should be aware

Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, Methaphetamine Use: Clinical and Forensic Aspects examines MA use and abuse from clinical, forensic, and criminal justice perspectives. It is the first to cover virtually every aspect, reviewing the history, pharmacology, pathology, physiology, treatment, and evidentiary value of MA and its use. It addresses Daubert considerations and victim/witness credibility, competency to confess and to stand trial, criminal responsibility, extreme emotion as mitigation to murder, and dangerousness. It also details statutes and case law to represent perspectives of both the prosecution and the defense.

Methamphetamine Use: Clinical and Forensic Aspects provides a comprehensive, critical survey of the current knowledge and policies regarding the use and abuse of this dangerous and ubiquitous substance.
