Substance use counseling : theory and practice

Patricia Stevens (Author), Robert L. Smith (Author)
"For use in Substance Abuse Counseling and Drugs and Behavior courses or for practicing counselors and clinicians as an on-the-job resource. A step-by-step guide through the process of working with substance-abuse and/or behavioral addiction clients. Recognized for its clear, practical approach, Substance Use Counseling offers prospective and practicing clinicians and counselors a sound base of knowledge about alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs (ATOD), and practical help for working with individuals and families who seek assistance for substance abuse and/or behavioral addiction. While the chapters build on each other as they take readers through the counseling process, each chapter can also be used as a stand-alone resource. Illustrative case studies with critical-thinking questions give readers opportunities to examine and discuss a wide variety of cases. This popular guide also features individual chapters on special populations to delve further into the topic of substance abuse and address ways to measure the problem. To keep readers up to date with the most current practices and trends shaping the field, the Sixth Edition reflects the changes in the DSM-5 related to the criteria for assessment and diagnosis of substance use disorders (including a new chapter on behavioral addictions and extensively updated terminology); the changing face of substance use; new effective treatment assessments, methods, and settings; and new chapter cases" -- From the publisher
