Overview

Explore the possibilities for successfully treating incarcerated or community-based substance abusers

Substance Abuse Treatment with Correctional Clients: Practical Implications for Institutional and Community Settings provides key research findings and policy implications for treating alcohol- and drug-addicted correctional clients. This book addresses a range of critical issues associated with delivering treatment in institutional and community settings. The critical thinking questions, tables, extensive bibliographies, and name and subject index will help academics and practitioners in criminal justice, sociology, counseling/psychology, and public policy.

Substance Abuse Treatment with Correctional Clients shares the practical knowledge of researchers and practitioners in the fields of drug and alcohol addictions, substance abuse counseling, and criminal justice. The first section provides a review of the theoretical explanations for substance abuse, "best practice" treatment programs for substance abusers, and the use of coerced/mandated treatment. The second section addresses the substance-addicted offender in the institutional setting, the third includes works that describe community-based treatment programs and the problems associated with them, and the fourth looks at special treatment populations, including juveniles and adolescent females.

In Substance Abuse Treatment with Correctional Clients, you will find:

  • reviews of various types of treatment programs being used to treat substance-addicted individuals
  • a study of the predictors of success and/or failure in corrections-based substance abuse programming—how to identify and use the predictors to prevent relapse
  • arguments for and against coerced treatment in the correctional environment, and the concept of "motivation"
  • a thorough investigation of the therapeutic community (TC) program for institutional-based substance abusers
  • descriptions of treatment programming designed specifically for substance abusing community corrections clients—drug courts and Pennsylvania’s Restrictive Intermediate Punishment treatment program
Substance Abuse Treatment with Correctional Clients guides you through the major policy issues faced by those who provide substance abuse treatment under what can only be described as coercive circumstances. In this important resource, you will discover major treatment modules as well as advice for working with adult, juvenile, and male or female offenders. This book provides you with the techniques that treatment communities need for helping offenders stay clean after they re-enter the community environment.
