"What EVERY human service professional should know about the issues around substance use and abuse in our society."
Peggy D. Campbell—Florence Darlington Technical College
Weaving actual clinical examples with solid research, Substance Abuse continues to provide counseling, psychology, social work, and other students in the helping professions with a detailed overview of the alcohol and other drug (AOD) field. Now in its Third Edition, this text provides updated coverage and practical clinical examples to reflect the rapid changes in the field of addiction. In a reader-friendly style, the authors present balanced coverage of various treatment models as well as objective discussions dealing with the controversies in this field. The text covers topics spanning the entire field—pharmacology, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, recovery, prevention, children, families, and other addictions—providing students with a broad view of the AOD field as well as the pervasiveness of the problem in all areas of behavioral health and general fields.
