Written with easy-to-approach language for beginners, SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, 4th Edition, provides a good, practical overview of substance abuse counseling. It addresses key issues early, including how to design specialized treatments to fit the individual needs of a client. This text will help you recognize the tendency of substance-abusing clients and their families to form a heterogeneous group that must be treated from an individualized perspective. The authors believe strongly that clients differ not only in the specific behaviors and consequences associated with their drug use but also in culture, gender, social environments, physical concerns, mental health and a host of other variables. The Fourth Edition's integrated approach presents innovative methods for meeting clients' needs through personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies, showing you how to determine the most effective treatment modalities for each client.
