This comprehensive clinical handbook provides virtually everything needed to plan, deliver, and evaluate effective treatment for persons with substance abuse problems and persistent mental illness. From authors at the forefront of the dual disorders field, the book is grounded in decades of influential research. Presented are clear guidelines for developing integrated treatment programs, performing state-of-the-art assessments, and implementing a wide range of individual, group, and family interventions. Also addressed are residential and other housing services, involuntary interventions, vocational rehabilitation, and psychopharmacology for dual disorders. Throughout, the emphasis is on workable ways to combine psychiatric and substance abuse services into a cohesive, unitary system of care. Designed in a convenient large-size format with lay-flat binding for ease of photocopying, the volume contains all needed assessment forms, treatment planning materials, and client handouts, most with permission to reproduce.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An outstanding resource for clinicians. The text is remarkable for its comprehensiveness, clarity, practical suggestions, and wealth of reproducible forms and handouts. Social workers will find the book especially useful, as it covers many aspects of treatment that are frequently overlooked, such as case management, family work, residential programs, and employment. This book will serve as a blueprint for providing integrated treatment for dual disorders."--Susan Gingerich, MSW, independent consultant and trainer, Narberth, Pennsylvania

"Mueser and his colleagues--all internationally recognized experts in their field--have given us a comprehensive, state-of-the-art volume to address empirically validated treatment for co-occurring disorders. With its treatment fidelity checklist and implementation guidelines, this book should be required reading for all program managers and mental health administrators who seek to design an effective, integrated system of care or improve existing service delivery. Grounded in practical clinical experience and well informed by first-rate scholarship, the text includes a variety of client handouts and detailed, step-by-step advice on adopting 'best practice' standards. This outstanding book is an invaluable resource for administrators, supervisors, clinicians, and trainers in social work and other mental health fields. I find it to be very valuable in training new staff. In addition, I highly recommend this book as a text for advanced practice courses in social work, psychology, psychosocial rehabilitation, and psychiatric nursing."--Margaret V. Sherrer, MSW, Project Director, Co-Occurring Addictive and Mental Disorders Program, South Shore Mental Health Center, Charlestown, Rhode Island; designated trainer, RI Council of Community Mental Health Centers, Inc.

"Providing meaningful help to the addicted client with major mental illness is the most difficult and challenging task that mental health clinicians face. Mueser and colleagues have provided us with a truly helpful and empowering guide. It is the best book in its field"--George E. Vaillant, MD, Harvard Medical School

"Individuals with severe mental illness and substance abuse are the most neglected group of psychiatric patients. This comprehensive textbook fills a major void and will be infinitely useful to clinicians, administrators, and clinicians-in-training. The authors have a national reputation for pioneering efforts to develop treatment models, and they have laid out a detailed plan for the rest of us to follow. Finally, clinicians have a cure for their dual diagnosis despair!"--E. Fuller Torrey, MD, The Stanley Medical Research Institute, Bethesda, MD

"Helping clients with dual disorders represents one of the most challenging tasks for mental health clinicians and administrators. While there is an extensive scientific literature on the topic, few programs offer integrated, evidence-based treatment. This book has the potential to change that. Written by the experts on the topic, it is a comprehensive, well-written, state-of-the-art manual that explains what needs to be done and then describes how it should be done. This book should find a home in every mental health program that works with dually diagnosed clients, and should be required reading for every new clinician and program administrator."--Alan S. Bellack, PhD, ABPP, Mental Illness Research Education Clinical Center (MIRECC), VA Capitol Health Care Network, Baltimore, MD; Department of Psychiatry, University of Maryland School of Medicine
