What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
"David Springer and Allen Rubin have compiled a valuable practice guide for any professional who works with substance-abusing youth or adults. This is a volume that should be on every practitioner's bookshelf!"
–C. Aaron McNeece, Dean and Walter W. Hudson Professor (Emeritus), College of Social Work, Florida State University

"This edited book is an important addition for clinicians wishing to incorporate the latest in evidence-based practices into their work with substance abusing clients. The detailed descriptions, case examples and supportive materials in each chapter provide invaluable guidelines to both beginning and experienced clinicians. It is a book that belongs in the libraries of all substance abuse educators, students and clinicians."
–S. Lala A. Straussner, Professor and Director, Post-Master's Certificate Program in the Clinical Approaches to Addictions Treatment, Silver School of Social Work, New York University

"A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with this series, which has all of these characteristics and more."
Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University
