Written for beginning level students, SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fourth Edition provides a good, practical overview of substance abuse counseling. Known for the way it addresses key issues early, including the designing of specialized treatments to fit the individual needs of a client. SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fourth Edition, also emphasizes the tendency of substance-abusing clients and their families to form a heterogeneous group that must be treated from an individualized perspective. Authors Lewis, Dana, and Blevins believe strongly that clients differ not only in the specific behaviors and consequences associated with their drug use but also in culture, gender, social environments, physical concerns, mental health and a host of other variables. Using an integrated approach, the authors describe innovative methods for meeting clients’ needs through personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies, showing students how to select the most effective treatment modalities for each client.

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.

Wayne Perry has been a therapist for more than thirty years, but he still hears the same thing from beginning counselors and therapists: Yes, I know what the theory says, but what do I do with this particular client? Drawing on his decades of experience training marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and pastoral counselors, he answers that question in the updated edition of his landmark book: Basic Counseling Techniques. He provides practical suggestions for setting up the therapy room, using audiovisual recording equipment, and conducting those first critical interviews. You'll learn how to: apply nine different sets of clinical tools; select the appropriate tool for the appropriate clinical situation; and improve how you carry out the clinical thinking process. Each chapter concludes with a "Living into the Lesson" section that allows you to participate in experiential exercises to master what you've learned. While designed for counselors and therapists in the beginning of their careers, even veterans in the field will find value in this updated edition.

An up-to-date guide to the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of addictions. Whether it’s to caffeine, nicotine, or alcohol, many of us suffer from at least one addiction. Carlton K. Erickson presents a comprehensive overview of the various types of addictions—covering both substance and nonsubstance addictions such as gambling, Internet use, and video games—and their diagnosis and treatment. This book sheds light upon the biological and environmental factors that cause addiction, reviews the various types of substance and nonsubstance addictions, and offers clinicians and patients hope for recovery. Erickson examines alcohol, drugs that speed us up, drugs that slow us down, and how to recognize addictive behavior—such as exercise and videogame addiction—which may be less obvious. Other topics covered include alcohol and other drug pharmacology, neurophysiology of brain pathways, alcohol and drug interactions, adolescent drug use, drug use differences by gender and culture, and visual signs of drug use. Erickson presents various therapeutic methods for addressing addiction, including pharmacological interventions, individual or group therapy, twelve-step programs, and therapy involving family members. Finally, he reflects on the involvement of family and the risks and consequences of relapse. Written by one of the country’s leading addiction specialists, this accessible, comprehensive book, is a go-to reference for your questions about addiction, and a friendly introduction to the diagnosis and treatment options.
