Description : This text focuses on empirically validated ways of treating substance abusers. The authors emphasize a variety of current models and methods, and identify approaches that are still controversial. They suggest that substance abuse counselling is adapted specifically to the needs of the client. A special chapter covers the assessment and diagnosis of substance use disorders and offers a unique look at the differences between users and abusers. Relapse treatment is discussed at length, and special topics include basic pharmacology, prevention in in-and-out patient treatment settings, and the effects of substance abuse on families. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students on courses of alcohol and drug abuse counselling in departments of counsellor education, social work, health and human services.

Description : Widely adopted, this state-of-the-art work is grounded in the best available knowledge about substance abuse and its treatment. The editors and contributors are leading authorities who provide a complete introduction to each of today's major evidence-based treatment approaches -- from conceptual underpinnings to clinical applications. The third edition has been revised and updated to reflect significant advances in research, theory, and technique. Entirely new chapters cover the biology of substance use disorders, treatment in primary care settings, and case management. The third edition retains the structure that makes the book so popular as a course text and practitioner resource. Following an introductory overview, paired chapters focus respectively on the theory and practice of each approach, including motivational, contingency management, cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, family, and pharmacological models. Theory chapters explain basic assumptions about how people develop, maintain, and recover from substance use disorders and concisely review the research support for each approach. Practice chapters then offer a start-to-finish view of treatment, covering such crucial topics as the therapeutic relationship, assessment procedures, goal setting, the sequencing of interventions, how "denial" and "resistance" are addressed, the role of self-help groups, and strategies for preventing and dealing with relapse. Illustrative case examples are included. The volume concludes with three chapters on integrating different techniques to meet patients' needs in a range of clinical settings. Written for a broad audience, this book is an essential text for courses in substance abuse treatment and addiction counseling. Experienced substance abuse clinicians -- including clinical psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, counselors, and psychiatrists -- will find it a valuable reference for staying up to date on current treatment approaches.

Description : Substance abuse is, and has always been, an indisputable fact of life. People – especially young people – abuse various legal and illegal substances for any number of reasons: to intensify feelings, to achieve deeper consciousness, to escape reality, to self-medicate. And as substance-abusing teenagers mature, they pose particular challenges to the professionals charged with keeping them clean and sober and helping them maintain recovery into adulthood. Adolescent Substance Abuse: Evidence-Based Approaches to Prevention and Treatment offers clear, interdisciplinary guidance that grounds readers in the many contexts – developmental, genetic, social, and familial among them – crucial to creating effective interventions and prevention methods. Its contributors examine current findings regarding popularly used therapies, including psychopharmacology, residential treatment, school- and community-based programs, group homes, and specific forms of individual, family, and group therapy. Accessible to a wide professional audience, this volume: (1) Presents evidence-based support for the treatment decision-making process by identifying interventions that work, might work, and don’t work. (2) Identifies individual traits associated with susceptibility to substance abuse and addiction in youth. (3) Provides a biogenetic model of the effects of drugs on the brain (and refines the concept of gateway drugs). (4) Evaluates the effectiveness of prevention programs in school and community settings. (5) Adds historical, spiritual, and legal perspectives on substance use and misuse. (6) Includes the bonus resource, the Community Prevention Handbook on Adolescent Substance Abuse and Treatment. This volume is an all-in-one reference for counseling professionals and clinicians working with youth and families as well as program developers in state and local agencies and graduate students in counseling and prevention.

Description : What works best and why in the nation's effort to improve and expand treatment counteracting the epidemic use of cocaine and the spread of AIDS? This in-depth report by experts on drug abuse treatment today represents the state of the art in research about effective new strategies in drug abuse treatment. The findings, analysis, and recommendations should counteract misunderstanding and misinformation about the nature of drug abuse among 5.5. million patients and what can be done to help them. The survey covers methadone programs, residential programs, case management programs, and multi-modal and other eclectic programs addressing "real world" situations among different populations in a range of community-based programs. Investigators at the National Institute on Drug Abuse describe 15 projects that test intervention strategies to improve client recruitment, retention, performance, and treatment outcomes.

Description : This book provides clinicians and students with insights on the use of psychodynamic therapy to treat drug abuse and addiction, combining theory with clinical case material. The perspectives of analysts such as Abraham, Rado, Zimmel, Tibout, Wurmser, Khanzian, Krystal and McDougall are reviewed alongside original and more recent conceptualizations of drug addiction and recovery based on Kleinian, Winnicottian and Kohutian ideas. The case material deals with clinical phenomena that characterize working with this complex population, such as intense projective identification, countertransference difficulties and relapses. The theoretical analysis covers a range of concepts, such as John Steiner's psychic shelters and Betty Joseph's near-death-addiction, which are yet to be fully explored in the context of addiction. Prevalent topics in the addiction field, such as the reward system, the cycle of change and the 12-step program, are also discussed in relation to psychodynamic theory and practice. Written by an experienced therapist, Psychodynamic Approaches for Treatment of Drug Abuse and Addiction is useful reading for anyone looking to understand how psychodynamic thought is applicable in the treatment of drug abuse and addiction. It may also be of some relevance to those working on treating alcohol use disorders and behavioral addictions.

Description : SUBSTANCE ABUSE COUNSELING, Fifth Edition, is at the cutting edge of the addiction field, combining a focus on the most current empirical studies with a firm belief that clients must be treated with a collaborative and respectful approach. These core values lay the basis for individualized treatment planning, attention to the client's social environment, a multicultural perspective, and a recognition that client advocacy is part of the counselor's role. Authors Lewis, Dana, and Blevins 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. Using an integrated approach, the authors describe innovative methods for meeting clients' needs through personalized assessment, treatment planning, and behavior change strategies, showing students how to select the most effective treatment modalities for each client. Updated with new references, this edition features a stronger emphasis on motivational interviewing, expanded material on ethical considerations, coverage of cultural and diversity considerations in every chapter, and digital downloads of key forms that appear throughout the text.

Description : This book is a basic resource of knowledge about alcoholism and drug addiction. The authors cover the scientific and clinical aspects of chemical dependency in a balanced way with case vignettes to illustrate clinical issues. The book is suitable for a number of student needs. Students preparing for the Certified Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) examination will find topics discussed that are drawn from the certification examination requirements. The text can stand as a main source for college-level courses in addictions or chemical dependancy in the mental health health programs, and can be used as a college or stand-alone introduction to chemical dependancy and counseling. Psychologists, social workers, clergy, and other professional counselors who wish to supplement their knowledge about chemical dependancy will find this text serves as a valuable reference. After an introduction to the general problems of substance abuse counseling, the authors delineate the different types of drugs and their effects, organize the relevant information used in the assessment and diagnosis of addictions, integrate knowledge of human development with causes of dependancy and addiction, and explore the impact of addiction on health and the family. They then focus on the principles of chemical abuse counseling, including treatment planning, the different schools of counseling, how to understand and manage relapse, and special populations. They conclude with ethical considerations involved in treating chemical abusers. The authors believe that chemical dependency counseling is the only profession that treats substance abuse as a primary disorder and disease with its own causes, course, progression and complication. Chemical dependency counseling must deal with and absorb a complex and intriguing web of fact and theory drawn from sciences, medicine, and other fields. But the practical side of chemical dependency counseling remains an art and a science. This book offers a whole set of specific techniques

Description : This timely volume fills a long-standing gap in the professional literature by providing an overview of contemporary assessment and rehabilitation of alcohol and chemical dependent substance abusers. Although many occupational therapists and other activity therapy staff work in substance abuse programs, few articles in occupational therapy literature address this relevant topic. Treatment of Substance Abuse: Psychosocial Occupational Therapy Approaches provides a unique overview of contemporary assessment and rehabilitiation of alcohol and chemical dependent substance abusers. The highlights of this insightful book include behavioral and educational frames of reference as well as specific treatment modalities such as stress management, activities of daily living, and leisure counseling. Contributors examine current polemics regarding programs that use methadone versus abstinence and theoretical concepts including the psychodynamic model with emphasis on the defensive structure underlying the abuser’s personality, as well as leveled conceptual framework for considering treatment. A number of practical techniques are discussed within the overall context of each article; hence the reader will find usable guidelines for establishing boundaries of treatment as well as discreet ideas about methods and practice. Roles and functions of varying disciplines are reviewed in an effort to discriminate role clarity and provide implications for practice in relation to different models. This issue is valuable to the OT who seeks an understanding of the varying viewpoints and current practice in the substance abuse field.
