Historically, there has been little integration of theoretical or applied research on addiction treatment and parenting intervention development. Rather, the fields of addiction and developmental research have progressed on largely separate trajectories, even though their focus powerfully and often tragically intersects each time a parent is diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Parenting and Substance Abuse is the first book to report on pioneering efforts to move the treatment of substance-abusing parents forward by embracing their roles and experiences as mothers and fathers directly and continually across the course of treatment. The chapters in this volume represent important new strides among researchers and clinicians to address and close the increasingly recognizable gap between addiction and developmental science. Chapters focus on current, state-of-the-art treatment models for parents, primarily pregnant and parenting women, including descriptions of innovative treatments currently being developed and evaluated that focus on parental addiction and the parent-child relationship within a developmental framework. Part I covers the theoretical understandings of how addiction impacts the developmental processes of parenting. Part II discusses risk assessment, evaluation, and a variety of interventions and therapies. This unique volume will be of importance to clinicians, researchers, students, and trainees in the health professions who develop, implement, and evaluate interventions for parental addiction, including in well-baby clinics, primary care settings, pediatric clinics, and residential and outpatient drug treatment programs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This unique book covers a very important topic: the intersection of treatment issues that arise when parents suffer from addiction to substances. It provides a solid conceptual framework to approach treating these parents effectively, describing specific approaches, general concepts, and background information. The book really is one of a kind in terms of covering these issues, and is an important addition to our clinical libraries. * Jason Chang, Rush University Medical Center, for Doody's, July 2013 *
This timely book is a well written, thoughtful and useful contribution to the field of parenting and substance abuse. The book is a thought provoking and useful refresher and reminder of the significance of understanding and responding to parents who use illegal drugs. * Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy *
