Abstract:

Addiction is a common clinical problem, and one in which treatment professionals can make a life or death difference. This book is a reference and text that focuses on how to provide effective help to clients with substance use disorders. The authors, leading authorities on addiction treatment, present a state-of-the-art framework for assessment and treatment. They describe and illustrate evidence-based treatment methods, including cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, motivational, pharmacological, and family approaches. Also addressed are such crucial clinical issues as resistance, maintenance of change, treating co-occurring disorders, and the use of spiritual resources in recovery. The text explains the latest clinical science and shows how to apply it in practice. The full continuum of care is addressed, from screening and evaluation to detoxification, individualized rehabilitation, adherence, and maintenance of change. Special sections contain the authors' insights on diverse aspects of addiction treatment and the professional's role.
