An indispensable practitioner reference and text, this engaging book focuses on how to provide effective help to clients with substance use disorders. The authors, leading authorities on addiction treatment, present a state-of-the-art framework for assessment and treatment. They describe and illustrate evidence-based treatment methods, including cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, motivational, pharmacological, and family approaches. Also addressed are such crucial clinical issues as resistance, maintenance of change, treating co-occurring disorders, and spirituality. Reproducible clinical tools can be photocopied from the book or downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size (www.guilford.com/p/miller11). Of special utility, the companion Web page features more than two dozen additional widely used, ready-to-download assessment tools, assembled in one place for the first time, together with the authors' guidance for using them throughout the process of treatment.
