Review:

"The up-to-date third edition of this clinical resource and text covers state-of-the-art approaches to substance abuse treatment. Written for a broad audience, the book not only provides clear, concise descriptions of the most prominent theories and approaches, but also does an excellent job of bridging the gap between clinical concepts, research, and actual clinical practice. This is an ideal classroom text for giving students and trainees in psychology, social work, counseling, and medicine a panoramic view of the field. It is equally informative for even the most seasoned practitioner." - Arnold M. Washton, Recovery Options, New York, USA "All substance abuse treatment professionals trying to ensure that the treatments they deliver are current, science-based, and empirically supported should read this book. Chapters highlight the unique concepts and strategies of each approach and, even more important, describe how to integrate different approaches into comprehensive, multicomponent treatment programming... I especially appreciate the third edition's more integrative focus on biological, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions of the treatments, and the discussions of how to integrate pharmacotherapy and case management into psychosocial treatments. As we strive to make substance abuse treatments more effective and accountable, we are fortunate to have a volume providing guidance for understanding and implementing the best treatment strategies the field has to offer." - Carlo C. DiClemente, University of Maryland, USA "This text is an excellent choice for upper-division undergraduate or first-year graduate courses on addictions. It provides a balanced perspective across diverse theoretically informed models of practice; traditional and contemporary perspectives are equally honored. Highlights of the third edition include additional psychopharmacology material and a complementary chapter on the biology of addictions." - Timothy B. Conley, University of Montana, USA "This volume is a terrific addition to the addiction bookshelf, particularly because it provides directed information about several of the newer forms of psychotherapy used in the treatment of substance use disorders, including motivational interviewing, contingency management, and family therapy. The editors have brought together experts in each approach to provide a work that is at once scholarly and readable. Vignettes of interactions with patients are included, as is a chapter on the neurobiology of addiction. This book will be useful not only for practitioners but also as a text for classroom learners." - Avram H. Mack, Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, D.C., USA
