Synopsis:

Weaving actual clinical examples with solid research, Substance Abuse continues to provide counseling, social work, and other students with a detailed overview of the alcohol and other drug (AOD) field. Now in its Third Edition, this text provides updated coverage and practical clinical examples to reflect the rapid changes in the field of addiction. In a reader-friendly style, the authors present balanced coverage of various treatment models as well as objective discussions of the controversies in the field. The text covers topics spanning the entire field–pharmacology, assessment and diagnosis, treatment, recovery, prevention, children, families, and other addictions–providing students with a broad view of the AOD field as well as the pervasiveness of the problem in all areas of behavioral health and general fields.

From the Back Cover:

This best-selling text, aimed at generalist students, provides current coverage and practical clinical examples to reflect the rapid changes in the field of addiction treatment. Using a reader-friendly style, the authors cover various treatment models and present objective discussions of controversies in the field. Topics span the entire field (including pharmacology, conceptualizations of AOD, assessment and diagnosis, models of prevention and treatment, and family issues), providing students with a broad view of the AOD field, as well as the pervasiveness of the problem in all areas of behavioral health and general fields.

  • Reordered chapters put greater emphasis on ethics and confidentiality.

 

Here’s what your colleagues are saying:

“I would utilize this text for the foundation class. It offers the beginning student a great overview of most of the relevant topics necessary....This text is accessible. It is clearly written, covers the important topics relevant to the generalist practice.”

–Debra Morrison-Orton, California State University, Bakersfield

 

“After reviewing many textbooks I selected this text because I felt it gave a great overview of the issues relevant to substance abuse and treatment. It seemed very appropriate for a bachelor level class and did not focus so much on counseling and theory as many of the other textbooks available.... It is straight forward and easy to understand yet very thorough in covering the many topics related to addictions. It has given me excellent learning tools to incorporate into the syllabi.”

–Nadine Panter, University of Nebraska, Kearny
