Overview

Because substance abuse is common among persons seeking mental health services, it is important for mental health professionals who don't specialize in substance abuse to be able to ascertain the possible involvement of alcohol or drug abuse when assessing a client. This practical new volume provides all the information general psychotherapists and mental health clinicians need to properly identify, assess, treat, and/or refer a client who is using psychoactive substances. Unlike other resources on the treatment of substance abuse, this volume is accessibly written for nonspecialists working in mental health facilities, hospitals, private practice, or other clinical settings, though specialists, too, will find many chapters of practical utility.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I was impressed by the range of approaches represented: the book suggests an inclusive approach that I found welcome. ... a fine and useful book." --Dr. Fullove, New York State Psychiatric Institute, NYC

"This book achieves its goals of providing practitioners with useful information to improve their ability to treat individuals with substance-related disorders." --John S. Lyons, PhD, Northwestern University Medical School

"All therapists will find this text a useful resource in their work. The volume is not only for those who work primarily with persons with addictions, but for all therapists, who at some time will encounter patients struggling with addictions or family members of persons with addictions. Psychotherapy and Substance Abuse is a wide-ranging text, covering adolescents through the elderly, and cutting across a number of theoretical frameworks and approaches. The book contains much practical information, such as dealing with relapse, brief treatment, and persons in rehabilitation programs. It belongs on the shelf of every practitioner." --Donald K. Freedheim, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Case Western Reserve University, Former editor, Psychotherapy; Founding editor, Professional Psychology

"Dr. Washton has assembled an impressive group of internationally renowned experts/authors in the theory and practice of treatment of patients with addictive disorders. All therapists interested in learning about how to approach addicted patients in individual, group, family, and network approaches will be richly rewarded by studying this book. It is full of wise and easily applicable pearls of how to conduct treatment of patients with addictive disorders. The book is likely to be of value to students and experienced clinicians who are eager to learn more about addictive disorders as well as to addictive experts. It will also be a valuable reference work for therapists who work with patients with addictive disorders. Dr. Washton has been a leader in picking successful approaches to addicted patients that are tailored to patients. He has made an important contribution to the addiction field in understanding treatment approaches to alcohol and cocaine addiction, and this book is an important addition to his work. Treatment in the addiction field has shifted to greater emphasis on outpatient care. It is essential to those providing treatment in a variety of settings to master the skills, attitudes, and knowledge to provide the best treatment for addicted patients. This book helps generalists and specialists alike develop expertise in this crucial area. The chapters are clearly written, well-integrated, and comprehensive regarding modern treatment techniques. ." --Richard J. Frances, M.D., Director, Dept. of Psychiatry, Hackensack Medical Center, and Professor of Clinical Psychology, UMDNJ--New Jersey Medical School

"The most comprehensive and detailed exploration of diagnostic and treatment approaches for persons afflicted by various levels of substance use. Non-biased, sensitive and humane in its appeal to novice and experienced clinicians. Superb for graduate and doctoral courses in the addictions. Washton has integrated major and minor theoretical and treatment approaches in a masterful way. All the material is dynamic, creative, and practical. I haven't run across another book like it! The material empowers the clinician by way of its wisdom, and the client, directly and indirectly, by way of the respect shown for the persons impacted by substance abuse and the integrity of the treatment approaches." --Noah Young, Ph.D., Pepperdine University, Graduate School of Education and Psychology; also a full-time clinical supervisor at the Tarzana Treatment Center and Psychiatric Hospital; Course: Psychoactive Substance Abuse Evaluation and Treatment, graduate level, 25 students

From The Critics
Reviewer: John S. Lyons, PhD (Northwestern University Medical School)
Description: This edited book provides a series of contributions on the role of various types of psychotherapeutic styles and techniques in the identification and treatment of substance abuse. The book is broken into three basic sections: Basic Issues and Perspectives, Clinical Strategies and Techniques, and Special Populations and Consideration.
Purpose: The book is intended to provide mental health practitioners in various clinical settings with sufficient information to detect, refer, and possibly treat individuals with substance-related disorders. Many individuals who seek mental health services have problems with substances, and a working knowledge of this area is an important skill for all mental health practitioners.
Audience: It is aimed at mental health practitioners with a limited knowledge about the nature and treatment of substance-related disorders.
Features: The book has many practical suggestions for assessment, including a standard assessment form, and provides many examples of clinical strategies using case vignettes.
Assessment: This is a very well written book that, through its many contributors, provides a fairly substantial and comprehensive discussion of the complexities of using psychotherapeutic strategies with persons with substance-related disorders. The book makes a consistent and outstanding effort to integrate psychotherapeutic strategies into other common services (i.e., 12-step) for this population. This book achieves its goals of providing practitioners with useful information to improve their abilityto treat individuals with substance-related disorders.

Topics include integrating psychotherapy and 12-step approaches and the role of incest issues in relapse and recovery. Written especially for therapists working in clinical settings that are not specialized chemical dependency programs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    A Professional's Guide to Treatment

    What is impressive about Dr. Washton's book is the breadth and depth of the topics. Easy to read for professionals or serious students of addiction counseling. This is not a case study, but rather an overview of research in the field: Is psychotherapy effective? What are the best treatment strategies for dual diagnosis, for disadvantaged groups, for adolescents, for the elderly, for HIV infected clients? Contributing authors provide well-researched analysis of various treatment strategies for clinical assessment, for brief treatment, for couples and family treatment, for integration with 12-step (facilitated self-help groups), and for relapse prevention.
