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 : 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 : Learn the Secret to Success on the Substance Abuse Counselor Course and Exams! Ever wonder why learning comes so easily to some people? This remarkable workbook reveals a system that shows you how to learn faster, easier and without frustration. By mastering the hidden language of the subject and exams, you will be poised to tackle the toughest of questions with ease. We’ve discovered that the key to success on the Substance Abuse Counselor Course and Exams lies with mastering the Insider’s Language of the subject. People who score high on their exams have a strong working vocabulary in the subject tested. They know how to decode the vocabulary of the subject and use this as a model for test success. People with a strong Insider’s Language consistently: Perform better on their Exams Learn faster and retain more information Feel more confident in their courses Perform better in upper level courses Gain more satisfaction in learning The Substance Abuse Counselor Vocabulary Workbook is different from traditional review books because it focuses on the exam’s Insider’s Language. It is an outstanding supplement to a traditional review program. It helps your preparation for the exam become easier and more efficient. The strategies, puzzles, and questions give you enough exposure to the Insider Language to use it with confidence and make it part of your long-term memory. The Substance Abuse Counselor Vocabulary Workbook is an awesome tool to use before a course of study as it will help you develop a strong working Insider’s Language before you even begin your review. Learn the Secret to Success! After nearly 20 years of teaching Lewis Morris discovered a startling fact: Most students didn’t struggle with the subject, they struggled with the language. It was never about brains or ability. His students simply didn’t have the knowledge of the specific language needed to succeed. Through experimentation and research, he discovered that for any subject there was a list of essential words, that, when mastered, unlocked a student’s ability to progress in the subject. Lewis called this set of vocabulary the “Insider’s Words”. When he applied these “Insider’s Words” the results were incredible. His students began to learn with ease. He was on his way to developing the landmark series of workbooks and applications to teach this “Insider’s Language” to students around the world.

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.
