Overcoming Problematic Alcohol and Drug Use is a workbook for use with clients in treatment, informed by the most current research and literature in the substance abuse field. Offering a field-tested alternative to the disease model of addiction, the book introduces a six-session curriculum for treating persons with substance abuse issues and can be used as a self-help resource, or as a practice guide for human service professionals. Drawing on years of research on cognitive-behavioral therapy, the stages of change model, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy, the author has put together a comprehensive and effective guide to change.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This addictions workbook has significant application for clients, practitioners working with addicted clients, and faculty training students in the specialty area of addictions." - Gerald A. Juhnke, Professor and Doctoral Program Director, Department of Counselor Education and Supervision, University of Texas at San Antonio, USA

"The book offers an organized, sensible, rational alternative to the more emotion-based model of AA. Clinicians will find it highly valuable to have an articulated program designed to move a client or patient through the relevant steps of a recovery process that does not involve spiritual or religious overtones, or a requirement that the person see himself or herself as helpless in the face of substance use. With a flexible application to a client based on education, substance abuse history, current substance use, and comorbid pathology, this program could be very productive." - Joan B. Read, PsycCritiques, Feb 2008 Vol. 53, Iss. 7.
