Overview

The transtheoretical model has fundamentally changed how Western professionals think about and address addictive behavior. In this new and original work, Dr. DiClemente extends this influential model to describe the development as well as the resolution of problems with drugs, sex, eating, and money. He thereby offers a comprehensive and fruitful framework to stimulate new professional thought on addiction policy, prevention, research, and treatment."—William R. Miller, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico "This book provides a refreshingly practical guide to help you navigate your way through competing theories, data, and dogma on how addiction can best be prevented and treated. Building on his previous work, Dr. DiClemente now helps us understand not only how people recover, but also how they develop addiction. His application of the transtheoretical model to complete the cycle of change is both intellectually satisfying and useful in planning and evaluating preventive interventions. Clinicians will be better able to explain to clients and families how addiction develops, and empower clients to change with dignity and compassion. Students using this book as a text in psychology courses or graduate studies in addiction will appreciate how the transtheoretical structure makes sense of the multiplicity of theories and approaches in the field. Researchers will enjoy the challenge to reexamine their models in light of Dr. DiClemente's synthesis of data. This book has deepened my understanding and appreciation of the transtheoretical model, and is sure to have a similar impact on others as well."—David Mee-Lee, MD, Co-Chair, Quality Improvement Council, American Society of Addiction Medicine "This volume combines cutting-edge research, theory, and practice to provide a panoramic perspective on the acquisition and cessation of addictions. Based on the transtheoretical model, the book offers an innovative, integrative
