NORWALK, Conn., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Psychiatric Times, a leading online community for mental health professionals, features content in which experts weigh in on nicotine cessation and presented strategies to manage this undertreated addiction. The online series examines some of the latest issues in treating nicotine-use disorder, a new category in DSM-5, and considers the greater ramifications in addiction, including:
- Smoking Cessation: What's Next? New evidence shows it is possible to teach patients to weaken the link between craving and smoking until they are able to ride out any craving–and consequently quit.
- The Role of Electronic Cigarettes for Tobacco Dependence Treatment A summary of a published study on whether e-cigarettes with nicotine were more effective for smoking cessation than nicotine patches
- Undertreatment of Tobacco Use Relative to Other Chronic Conditions One might expect that treating nicotine use would be a leading priority for physicians. The reality is that this is not the case. More in this expert commentary, with practical tips for clinicians.
Psychiatric Times is the country's leading psychiatric publication.
