E-BOOK EXCERPT

Widely adopted, this state-of-the-art work is grounded in the best available knowledge about substance abuse and its treatment. The editors and contributors are leading authorities who provide a complete introduction to each of today's major evidence-based treatment approaches -- from conceptual underpinnings to clinical applications. The third edition has been revised and updated to reflect significant advances in research, theory, and technique. Entirely new chapters cover the biology of substance use disorders, treatment in primary care settings, and case management. The third edition retains the structure that makes the book so popular as a course text and practitioner resource. Following an introductory overview, paired chapters focus respectively on the theory and practice of each approach, including motivational, contingency management, cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, family, and pharmacological models. Theory chapters explain basic assumptions about how people develop, maintain, and recover from substance use disorders and concisely review the research support for each approach. Practice chapters then offer a start-to-finish view of treatment, covering such crucial topics as the therapeutic relationship, assessment procedures, goal setting, the sequencing of interventions, how "denial" and "resistance" are addressed, the role of self-help groups, and strategies for preventing and dealing with relapse. Illustrative case examples are included. The volume concludes with three chapters on integrating different techniques to meet patients' needs in a range of clinical settings. Written for a broad audience, this book is an essential text for courses in substance abuse treatment and addiction counseling. Experienced substance abuse clinicians -- including clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, counselors, and psychiatrists -- will find it a valuable reference for staying up to date on current treatment approaches.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

This volume presents a culturally informed framework for understanding and treating substance abuse problems. From expert contributors, chapters cover specific ethnocultural groups in the United States, including Americans of African, Native American, Latino, European, Middle Eastern, and Asian descent. While emphasizing the need to see each client as a unique individual, the book examines how ethnocultural factors may affect a person's attitudes toward alcohol and other drugs, patterns of substance use, reasons for seeking treatment, and responsiveness to various interventions. Themes addressed include the impact of migration and acculturation issues, spiritual values and traditions, family structures, gender roles, and experiences of prejudice and discrimination. Featuring a wealth of illustrative clinical material, the volume makes concrete recommendations for more competent, effective assessment and intervention. It also guides clinicians toward greater awareness of the ways their own ethnocultural backgrounds may affect their interactions with clients.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Substance abuse is one of society's most serious problems. Drugs seem to be readily available even in elementary schools, which attests to the success of the drug purveyors and the failure of law enforcement officials, education administrators and parents. As an example, in the U.S. 2003, there were nearly 1.7 million admissions to publicly funded substance abuse treatment programs. Most admissions (23.2 percent) were for alcohol treatment. Marijuana accounted for the largest percentage of illicit drug admissions (15.4 percent), followed by heroin (14.4 percent). This book presents new and important research dealing with treatments and treatment programs aimed at alleviating the misery and loses to society of this vicious behavioural disorder.
