Summary: This approachable, interdisciplinary text reflects the author's twenty-plus years of experience in the substance abuse field. Comprehensive and broad in its scope, the book parallels the practice process with substance abuse clients, offering a four-stage organization (an overview that includes theoretical foundations, pharmacology, and models; client engagement; screening and assessment; and treatment) that walks students through this process. The book's highly appl...show moreied nature ensures that students will find an abundance of specific information they can put to use in daily practice.
The book discusses six prominent theories and models used in substance abuse, as well as relevant research and specific practice examples.
The author delineates the assessment process from both screening and diagnosis and demonstrates its crucial role in appropriate substance abuse practice as an ongoing and continuous part of the treatment process.
Chapter 2 focuses on the reciprocal effects substances have on individuals, including behavioral and emotional symptomatology, potential withdrawal risks, drug interaction risks, and other indicators that practitioners can use in developing an accurate substance abuse assessment.
Chapter 4 provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary look at client engagement and the characteristics of helps that contribute to building successful helping relationships.
In Chapter 5, Rodney Mulder, Ph.D. and the author focus on important family dynamics, processes, and practices important to engagement, assessment, and treatment processes.
Chapter 6 explores the importance of the community on individuals and families seeking substance abuse services, and considers such factors as human diversity, rural versus urban communities, living conditions, crime and drug prevalence, law enforcement, and transportation, as well as community support and treatment resources.
In Chapter 8, the author covers ten specific assessment dimensions, providing readers with specific questions and examples.
Chapter 10 integrates multiple theories, models, and methods into a multi-systemic treatment framework. Multi-systemic treatment planning and relapse prevention is covered as part of aftercare services.
Chapter 11 focuses on issues related to specific populations, including African Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons (GLBT), adolescents, persons with co-occurring disorders, and older persons.
Three different Appendices provide students with additional resources. Appendix A offers readers a sample case history/assessment format. Appendix B is a sample case history report of a client assessment. In Appendix C, Lois Smith Owens offers a compelling glimpse into the lives of African American women and substance abuse.
