Overview

What is the role of self-help groups in addiction counseling? How are other disorders and behavioral problems aggravated and influenced by addictions? How can one help another through the treatment process? The answers to these questions preclude a basic understanding of the vocabulary surrounding addictions and addiction counseling — a vocabulary provided by this informative, introductory resource.

This book is an excellent, overall summary of addictions counseling. Its primary strength is its practical, hands-on approach which allows readers to learn first-hand about how to help people with addictions. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to bridge the gap between the academic side and the practical side to this type of counseling. Providing the current and pertinent information on addictions counseling, this book includes separate chapters on self-help groups, assessment instruments, brief therapy, and dual disorders.

Addiction counselors, psychologists, health professionals, behavioral therapists, friends and family members of those struggling with addiction problems, and anyone else who wants to learn more about addictions counseling.
