Dr. Jaffe is well established as an authority in the field of alcohol and other substance abuse in adolescents. His earlier "Workbook for Adolescent Dependency Recovery" (APPI, 1990) has become a standard resource in the field. There is no question that these two additions--a 'first step' intervention workbook for the adolescent patient and an instructional and informational manual for staff--will be of great value to every clinician and every program dealing with this important and serious problem."
