Far more than just an autobiography of addiction, Pill Head also contains a serious look at the assorted methods used to divert prescription medications into the recreational market and critiques of both the available treatment options for prescription medication addiction, and the DEA's strategies for combating the illegal trade in these drugs. The book also discusses the pharmacology of the assorted drugs that are commonly traded and used for nonmedical purposes, including opioids, SSRIs, MAOIs, benzodiazapines, and amphetamines.

This books was very well written. It's very entertaining & funny. If this is your topic of interest you'll have a great read. This isn't a book to help an addict so to say but rather a memoir of a previous addict.
