Substance Abuse Treatment for Youth and Adults

Author(s): David W. Springer

Health and Emotional Development

Addressing substance abuse treatment for youths and adults, this volume helps busy practitioners by providing the 'how-to' and 'what now' rather than using the typical academic approach. Each contributed chapter follows a consistent structure including an introduction; a detailed and practical step-by-step guide to the intervention; indicators and contra-indicators; cases; and additional resources, making the book an easy-to-use and essential resource for practitioners in social work, counseling, psychology and students-in-training.


Product Information

"David Springer and Allen Rubin have compiled a valuable practice guide for any professional who works with substance-abusing youth or adults. This is a volume that should be on every practitioner's bookshelf!" -C. Aaron McNeece, Dean and Walter W. Hudson Professor (Emeritus), College of Social Work, Florida State University "This edited book is an important addition for clinicians wishing to incorporate the latest in evidence-based practices into their work with substance abusing clients. The detailed descriptions, case examples and supportive materials in each chapter provide invaluable guidelines to both beginning and experienced clinicians. It is a book that belongs in the libraries of all substance abuse educators, students and clinicians." -S. Lala A. Straussner, Professor and Director, Post-Master's Certificate Program in the Clinical Approaches to Addictions Treatment, Silver School of Social Work, New York University "A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence-based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician-friendly guides. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real-life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home run with this series, which has all of these characteristics and more." -Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University
