Overview

 

Widely adopted, this state-of-the-art work is grounded in the best available knowledge about substance abuse and its treatment. The editors and contributors are leading authorities who provide a complete introduction to each of today's major evidence-based treatment approaches -- from conceptual underpinnings to clinical applications. The third edition has been revised and updated to reflect significant advances in research, theory, and technique. Entirely new chapters cover the biology of substance use disorders, treatment in primary care settings, and case management.

 

The third edition retains the structure that makes the book so popular as a course text and practitioner resource. Following an introductory overview, paired chapters focus respectively on the theory and practice of each approach, including motivational, contingency management, cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, family, and pharmacological models. Theory chapters explain basic assumptions about how people develop, maintain, and recover from substance use disorders and concisely review the research support for each approach. Practice chapters then offer a start-to-finish view of treatment, covering such crucial topics as the therapeutic relationship, assessment procedures, goal setting, the sequencing of interventions, how "denial" and "resistance" are addressed, the role of self-help groups, and strategies for preventing and dealing with relapse. Illustrative case examples are included. The volume concludes with three chapters on integrating different techniques to meet patients' needs in a range of clinical settings.

 

Written for a broad audience, this book is an essential text for courses in substance abuse treatment and addiction counseling. Experienced substance abuse clinicians -- including clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, counselors, and psychiatrists -- will find it a valuable reference for staying up to date on current treatment approaches.

From the Publisher

"The up-to-date third edition of this clinical resource and text covers state-of-the-art approaches to substance abuse treatment. Written for a broad audience, the book  not only provides clear, concise descriptions of the most prominent theories and approaches, but also does an excellent job of bridging the gap between clinical concepts and research and actual clinical practice. This is an ideal classroom text for giving students and trainees in psychology, social work, counseling, and medicine a panoramic view of the field. It is equally informative for even the most seasoned practitioner."--Arnold M. Washton, PhD, Executive Director, Recovery Options, New York City and Princeton, New Jersey

"This volume is a terrific addition to the addiction bookshelf, particularly because it provides directed information about several of the newer forms of psychotherapy used in the treatment of substance use disorders, including motivational interviewing, contingency management, and family therapy. The editors have brought together experts in each approach to provide a work that is at once scholarly and readable. Vignettes of interactions with patients are included, as is a chapter on the neurobiology of addiction. This book will be useful not only for practitioners but also as a text for classroom learners."--Avram H. Mack, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Georgetown University Hospital

"All substance abuse treatment professionals trying to ensure that the treatments they deliver are current, science based, and empirically supported should read this book. Chapters highlight the unique concepts and strategies of each approach and, even more important, describe how to integrate different approaches into comprehensive, multicomponent treatment programming. I especially appreciate the third edition's more integrative focus on biological, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions of the treatments, and the discussions of how to integrate pharmacotherapy and case management into psychosocial treatments. As we strive to make substance abuse treatments more effective and accountable, we are fortunate to have a volume providing guidance for understanding and implementing the best treatment strategies the field has to offer."--Carlo C. DiClemente, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland-Baltimore County

"This text is an excellent choice for upper-division undergraduate or first-year graduate courses on addictions. It provides a balanced perspective across diverse theoretically informed models of practice; traditional and contemporary perspectives are equally honored. Highlights of the third edition include additional psychopharmacology material and a complementary chapter on the biology of addictions."--Timothy B. Conley, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Montana

"This ideal text and clinical guide focuses on evidence-based psychological and pharmacological interventions. Contributors are well-known addiction specialists. What makes this book unique is that it is a valuable resource for everyone from medical, psychological, nursing, and social work professionals to students and those seeking to become certified substance abuse counselors."--Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, ABPP, and Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University
