Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Emily S. Bennett, MS, MPA (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is an updated book on the theory and practice of chemical dependency counseling in the face of a changing political climate and healthcare reform.
Purpose: The book's purpose is to provide an understandable, practical text on the clinical, legal and ethical issues unique to the field of chemical dependency counseling. An extensive overview of different addiction treatment modalities within the theoretical context of mental health, disease, and 12-step models of addiction are used to aid the professional in making effective and efficient treatment decisions based on the individual's unique needs. An important topic, the book well meets its overall objective.
Audience: Intended for students or other mental health professionals who want to work with the chemically dependent, the book will be a useful aid in the development and implementation of effective therapeutic strategies for the diverse needs of the addicted individual. The authors are very solid and credible in this area.
Features: The book includes sample assessment guidelines and clinical examples that greatly contribute to the summarization and clarification of principles and therapeutic strategies. The references are extensive and up-to-date. The stated objectives at the beginning of each chapter and discussion questions following are especially useful in guiding one's reading.
Assessment: This is a very useful, updated text for the student or mental health professional interested in working with the chemically dependent client. The authors provide an extensive overview of the theoretical, legal, and ethical issues unique to the field of chemical dependency counseling. Special attention is given to how healthcare reform has effected treatment issues. The book represents a valuable addition to the understanding of the unique clinical needs of the chemically dependent and provides a useful framework within which to make effective treatment decisions.
