Fundamentals of Substance Abuse Practice Review

I wrote this book with practitioners in mind. After many unsuccessful years of looking for a text that covered the substance abuse field in a way that reflected real-world practice, I came up with this text. I provide a mix of theory and practice skills, giving readers someting to sink their teeth into, regardless of level or experience. I focused mostly on four important issues: successful client engagement based in the strengths perspective, understanding client culture, multisystemic assessment and treatment planning, and co-occurring disorders. I provide a critique of the disease model and other theories/moedls while encouraging practitioners to match treatment model/theory to the needs and experiences of clients.
