Handbook for Assessing and Treating Addictive Disorders

Synopsis

This valuable reference offers a fresh, integrative perspective on the diagnosis and treatment of addictive disorders. The work begins with a solid theoretical base that includes essays on behavioral, familial, and psychoanalytical explanations of addiction. The sections that follow build on that base by overviewing the most significant advances in the assessment and treatment of addictive behavior. The authors give close attention to addiction among special populations. The final section examines the supervision of substance abuse counselors, and useful appendixes list sources of information on programs and credential requirements.
