This volume synthesizes the latest theory and research on the process of addictive behavior change, helping the clinician more effectively conceptualize and address the needs of particular clients. It offers concrete guidance for tailoring interventions to clients with varying levels of motivation or readiness to change, describing what works--and what doesn't work--at different points in the recovery process. All aspects of addictions treatment are covered, from assessment to intervention and relapse management. Practical recommendations are provided for applying the stages-of-change model to clinical work with individuals, groups, couples, and families, and for addressing the special needs of women and dually diagnosed clients. Ideal for practicing clinicians, the book is also an invaluable text for graduate-level courses.
