Chemical Dependency Counseling, Second Edition, one of the best-selling treatment manuals for chemical dependency, combines the traditional twelve-step program with cognitive behavioral theory and motivational enhancement. New to the Second Edition is expanded coverage of psychopharmacologic treatment of mental disorders, intervention of family members, and prevention of adolescent substance abuse in conjunction with new information on gambling addiction and patient motivation. Using the American Society of Addiction Medicine chemical dependency treatment model―the model used by the leading chemical addiction centers in the world―the author provides a step-by-step guide complete with informational handouts, patient schedules, and assessment plans for patient-types.
