Substance Abuse Treatment and the Stages of Change: Selecting and Planning Interventions

This book synthesizes the latest theory and research about the process of changing addictive behavior, helping the clinician more effectively conceptualize and address the needs of particular clients who use and abuse alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. It offers concrete guidance for tailoring interventions to consumers who have varying levels of motivation or readiness to change, describing what works—and what doesn't work—at different points in the recovery process.

All aspects of addictions treatment are covered, from assessment to intervention and relapse management. Practical recommendations are provided for applying the stages-of-change model to clinical work with individuals, groups, couples, and families and for addressing the special needs of women and dually diagnosed clients. Ideal for practicing clinicians, the book is also an invaluable text for graduate-level courses.
