Despite the increasing proliferation of chemical dependency training programs and college curriculums throughout the country, there exists an ubiquitous void in the area of treatment planning training- and preparation. Thus, many novice clinicians are faced with the frustrations of how to put together a worthwhile treatment plan. That is the goal and intent of this handbook: to provide the entry-level clinician with a broad data base of treatment planning illustrations from which unpretentious treatment plans for the chemically dependent client can be generated. They were written simple, largely measurable, and purposefully, with language that is cognizant of comprehension and learning needs of clients. What they epitomize are implicitly and inferentially sound clinical planning documents that can both expedite a clinician's work pace while providing detailed plans concentrating on early recovery needs. The data base of plans cover a broad cross section of potential presenting problems, each categorized in a domain that is easily correlated with prevailing assessment areas. The appendix contains samples of unpublished collections of viable hand-outs that can be used as templates for additional assignments and work sheets. It will be of interest to drug and alcohol counselors, as well as psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, psychotherapists, and others in the field of addiction medicine.
