The correlation between schizophrenia and substance abuse in psychology is recognized as a growing issue, yet it is one that many practitioners are often ill-prepared to address. Behavioral Treatment for Substance Abuse in People with Serious and Persistent Mental Illness addresses the specific challenges faced by the clinician treating individuals with co-occurring schizophrenia and substance abuse disorders. Designed as a treatment manual for mental health professionals, the book incorporates various treatment components, from motivational interviewing and social skills training to education, problem solving, and relapse prevention.

The book presents clearly established guidelines for these treatment modes and utilizes both case examples and fictional situations to present a practical, hands-on approach. Readers will profit directly from the lessons in the book, which offers the clinician an invaluable model from which to base a treatment plan.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I have been aware of the authors' seminal work in this area for nearly ten years, and am gratified that this valuable material has finally been published, so it will be available to a wider audience. This will be a valuable resource indeed for every mental health agency working with this challenging population." -Kenneth Minkoff, M.D., Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School

"Bellack, Bennett, and Gearon give clinicians an excellent guide to treating dual disorders of schizophrenia and substance abuse. The book is replete with clinical vignettes and supplemented with user-friendly skill sheets, educational materials, and forms. It will be a welcome resource to all clinicians working with dually diagnosed clients." -Kim T. Mueser, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, and Community and Family Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School

"The book provides specific and detailed guidance for implementing one of the few existing manualized treatment curricula for individuals with co-occurring disorders. Behavioral health professionals should welcome the opportunity to apply these straightforward, evidence-based interventions." -Roger H. Peters, Ph.D., Chairman and Professor, Department of Mental Health Law and Policy, University of South Florida
