Chemical Dependency Counseling is a best-selling comprehensive guide for counselors and front-line professionals who work with the chemically dependent and addicted in a variety of treatment settings. The text shows the counselor how to use the best evidence-based treatments available, including motivational enhancement, cognitive behavioral therapy, skills training, medication and 12 step facilitation. Guiding the counselor step-by-step through treatment, this volume presents state-of-the-art tools, and forms and tests necessary to deliver outstanding treatment and to meet the highest standards demanded by accrediting bodies.
"The 55 appendices make this book indispensable. . . . Another strength was the introduction of concepts and terms which are defined, explained, and contain examples. Inclusion of the spiritual dimensions of the approach were very helpful. . . . This is an excellent integration of research and practice."
"In Chemical Dependency Counseling Dr. Perkinson has given the addictions counseling profession an exceptional foundational text, now in the fourth edition. Students and experienced professionals will find resources that are clinically sound and practice relevant. CDC continues to be welcomed in my classroom and “heavily borrowed” by my colleagues."

The most comprehensive treatment manual for addiction's counselors gets better with the second edition. This is the book that everyone is using at ASAM and other national organizations like NAADAC to train new counselors. It teaches the beginning counselor everything he or she needs to know to treat addiction as well as anyone in the world. Great Book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
