Overview

This volume in Springer's well-conceived Comparative Treatments [for] Psychological Disorders Series was designed to examine psychotherapy approaches to chemical dependence treatment...[it] provides important theoretical and clinical information that will be of great use to psychotherapy students, particularly those at the graduate level. It will make an excellent companion resource to many specific chemical dependence treatment texts because it provides a variety of theories that are clearly linked to practical intervention strategies." --International Association for Cognitive Psychotherapy

This volume addresses a clinical problem seen by most mental health professionals--the abuse of drugs and alcohol. Drs. Dowd and Rugle have assembled top professionals in the field to address the same case to illuminate the strengths and weaknesses of different therapeutic approaches to substance abuse. Treatment modalities include psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, REBT, family therapy, and more. The volume also presents current outcome research for evidence-based interventions.
