"This comprehensive guide to substance abuse treatment can be used as a reference because it covers so many areas, like an A-Z guide... This is a comprehensive guide to theory and intervention. It is a practical, step-by-step guide to helping clients suffering from substance abuse and dependence. The author provides forms you can use, which can be helpful to both the novice and seasoned therapist. This book is great because it covers all the pertinent areas in this field. If I could afford only one book in the substance abuse area, this is the one I would buy because it is comprehensive, easy to read, and gives specific treatment recommnedations. It is an invaluable resource." --DOODY PUBLICATIONS
