“Treating Alcoholism is a wonderful book that is extremely informative and engaging for experienced clinicians as well as students new to addiction treatment. This book takes on controversies in the field and addresses them head-on. By the end, the reader has an in-depth understanding of what it takes to provide solid treatment for recovery from alcoholism.”
