Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Recognizing that clients with substance misuse problems represent a significant portion of most social workers caseloads, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs offers a comprehensive overview of the substance misuse problem and how it directly affects clients. Research suggests that each user seriously affects the lives of four to six other people. This compendium was produced in response to the growing concern of social workers about the limited material written solely for work with this population. It grew out of a 5-year faculty development grant sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Public Health Service and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Special Features * Provides a comprehensive range of theories about substance misuse, with the introduction of a problem-solving model for successful intervention * Focuses on assessment, engagement, and guidelines for interviewing using a battery of assessment tools * Addresses the importance of culture, race, ethnicity, and gender in treating substance misuse * Offers intervention and prevention strategies for specific groups
