Read an Excerpt

Substance abuse ranks as one of the major public health issues in today's society. Whether directly or indirectly, abuse is responsible for increased risk of violence in the home, suicide, mental illness, work-related accidents, and approximately half of all fatal automobile crashes. The use and abuse of substances span gender, socioeconomic levels, ethnicity, age, religion, profession, geography, and most dimensions of human existence and background. All people during their lifetimes will be touched by substance abuse or addiction; therefore, clinicians should be adequately trained to recognize the enormity of this problem, how to assess it, and ultimately how to treat individuals and families who come for assistance. Comprehensive programs at undergraduate and graduate levels are now in place in many settings, systematically studying substance abuse and subsequent treatment modalities.

This book was developed to be helpful for the general clinician as well as for students in beginning substance abuse classes and as an adjunct to, but not a replacement for, counseling theory and techniques books and coursework. Contributors to this edition have extensive backgrounds in substance abuse work as well as special knowledge in a particular segment of the field.

Space and time limitations prevent us from examining many of the issues in the field: public policy, working in a school setting, substance abuse in the workplace, HIV/AIDS and drug use, and a more in-depth study of the dualdiagnosis issues of mental illness and substance abuse.

The book takes the reader through the process of working with substanceabusing clients. Chapters build on each other, yet can be usedindependently as resources for information. Because it is impossible to portray a "real" client, case histories were developed and are used to offer a sense of practical application in each chapter. These case discussions provide a sample of the types of issues presented when working with this population.

The authors believe that knowing about all aspects of the treatment process are essential to assisting clients toward recovery. We have endeavored to structure the book in a manner that reflects treatment from first contact to recovery. We hope that you find this book to be an enjoyable and practical read as well as helpful in your practice.

Preface

PREFACE:

Preface

Substance abuse itself still ranks as one of the major public health issues in today's society. The use and abuse of substances cross gender, socioeconomic levels, ethnicity, age, religion, profession, geography, and most dimensions of human existence and background. Comprehensive programs at undergraduate and graduate levels are now in place in many settings, systematically studying substance abuse and subsequent treatment modalities. Everyone during their lifetime will be touched by substance abuse or addiction; therefore, clinicians should be adequately trained to recognize the enormity of this problem, how to assess it, and, ultimately, how to treat individuals and families who come for assistance.

Contributors to this edition have extensive backgrounds in substance abuse work as well as a special knowledge in a particular segment of the field. Space and time limitations prevented us from examining many of the issues in the field: public policy, working in a school setting, substance abuse in the workplace, and a more in-depth study of the dual-diagnosis issues of mental illness and substance abuse. This text was developed to be helpful for the general clinician as well as the beginning substance abuse counselor. It is intended to serve as the major text for substance abuse classes and as an adjunct to, not a replacement for, counseling theory and techniques texts and coursework.

This textbook takes the reader through the process of working with substance-abusing clients. Chapters build on each other but yet can be used independently as resource information. Chapter 1 provides the foundation for the text by presentingahistory of drug use, basic terminology, references to subsequent chapters, and case studies that are used throughout the text. Chapter 2 examines major drugs and their addictive properties, providing essential knowledge for anyone entering this field. Chapter 3 presents the etiology and theories common to drug use and abuse. The beginning of treatment starts with Chapter 4 by emphasizing assessment and diagnosis, again using cases from earlier chapters to understand assessment and diagnosis on a more applied basis.

Treatment is emphasized in Chapters 5 and 6. First, treatment settings are discussed, followed by a closer look at treatment modalities most often used alone or with other methods in treating substance abuse clients. "Family Therapy in Substance Abuse Treatment," Chapter 7, is new to this text and emphasizes the importance of systemic work with substance abusers. Chapters 8 and 9 provide an in-depth analysis of substance abuse prevention and intervention with selected cultures and specific groups: women, children and adolescents, people with disabilities, the elderly, African Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Hispanics. Relapse is seen as an element of the treatment process and is the focus of Chapter 10. Chapter 11, "Prevention," was also added to this edition, emphasizing a proactive approach to substance abuse. Finally, Chapter 12 presents a synopsis of research findings as well as contemporary issues in the field that are currently being studied.

Because it was impossible to portray a "real" client, case histories were developed and are used in selected chapters to offer a sense of the practical application of information in each chapter. These case histories provide a sample of the types of issues presented when working with this population.

    OK

    I really wish I could read it on my tablet also. Program works good on computer, but must read at home, which is not why I bought an online book.
