This important work elucidates why relapse is so common for people recovering from addictive behavior problems--and what can be done to keep treatment on track. It provides an empirically supported framework for helping people with addictive behavior problems develop the skills to maintain their treatment goals, even in high-risk situations, and deal effectively with setbacks that occur. The expert contributors clearly identify the obstacles that arise in treating specific problem behaviors, review the factors that may trigger relapse at different stages of recovery, and present procedures for teaching effective cognitive and behavioral coping strategies.

"People can overcome addictive behaviors, but doing so often requires time and multiple attempts. Many studies have taught us the importance of approaching treatment from a realistic perspective. In this second edition, the relapse model proffered by Marlatt for alcohol problems 20 years ago has now been extended to a dozen different addictive behaviors. Each chapter provides an overview of the management and prevention of relapse for specific problem areas. This book is absolutely essential for anyone working in the addictions field."--Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University
"More than two decades ago, Alan Marlatt offered a way to analyze and prevent relapse that was one of those seminal insights that changed the field of addiction science forever. In the second edition of this influential work, Marlatt and Donovan provide an updated reconceptualization of the relapse process that incorporates cutting-edge research on craving, expectancies, contingencies, and self-regulation. Top scientist-practitioners offer a panoramic view of relapse prevention across the most extensive range of behaviors addressed in one place. Practitioners of all types, as well as researchers interested in the critical next questions facing the field, will appreciate this state-of-the-science volume and the clear treatment guidance it contains."--Carlo C. DiClemente, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland-Baltimore County
