Overview

An ideal clinical resource, this volume features comprehensive yet concise descriptions of the five most prominent theories of substance abuse treatment alongside accessible, companion chapters on how to translate each theory into actual clinical practice. Written by noted theoreticians and practitioners, many of whom are also actively involved in clinical research on the addictions, the book also includes a chapter on emerging pharmacological approaches, making it a singularly complete reference on the treatment of substance abuse.

The five theoretical approaches presented are:
* 12-Step
* Psychodynamic
* Behavioral
* Marital/Family
* Motivational

For each, a complementary clinical chapter liberally utilizes case examples that bring the issues to life. In addition, the chapter on pharmacological treatments includes information on how they might best be integrated with the psychosocial approaches described.

An ideal classroom text for providing students with both a broad overview of the field and concrete instruction on clinical practice, Treating Substance Abuse will be valued by advanced undergraduate students in courses on addictions and their treatment; by graduate students in clinical psychology, social work, and medicine; and by substance abuse counselors in training. Treatment professionals will find it serves as a quick and easy reference to state-of-the-art substance abuse treatment as it is conceptualized and practiced in the United States today.
