Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: John D. Mead, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book encompasses the broad spectrum of addictions, addictive behaviors, and their treatments, written primarily by counselors and practicing clinicians in the addiction field.
Purpose: Its intent is to bridge the gap between theory and practice of addiction treatment via a single volume covering both chemical addictions and "process" addictions, such as gambling, shopping, and eating disorders. The book includes major sections on the pharmacology of addiction and on the family context in which current interventions tend to focus. Additional sections describe less traditional and more innovative therapies in an effort to familiarize readers with new trends.
Audience: Addiction counselors and other health care professionals less familiar with the addiction field will appreciate the breadth of topics covered. Students entering applied areas of counseling and psychotherapy may use this as introductory material.
Features: The book is composed almost exclusively of textual material, with limited number of graphs and tables. The reference sections at the end of each chapter are current but not extensive. Included is a useful section on additional resources listing recent books published in specific areas of addiction. The authors represent a wide array of disciplines, but, for the most part, do not have national reputations.
Assessment: Readers new to the addiction literature will benefit from the breadth of topics, which is both its strength and greatest limitation. Chapters are often too brief and lack the depth necessary to adequately cover the topic. Accordingly, the book fails at times to achieve its stated purpose of linking theory to practice. The authors struggle to pull too much material together in a few pages providing superficial treatment of some subjects. Despite this limitation, it contains many informative chapters, particularly in the applied sections on treatment strategies.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice in the addictions field, this volume includes both general, state of the art reviews of current treatment practices, and brief descriptions of innovative concepts and strategies. It is divided into six parts: conceptualizing addictions; treating addictions; the pharmacology of addictions; families and addictions; innovations in thought and practice; and additional resources.
