"What can you do for people with a substance-abusing loved one who refuses to get help? Quite a lot, as it turns out, and these are among the most desperate, motivated, and rewarding clients you will ever treat. Drs. Smith and Meyers describe the CRAFT method that they have shown to be highly effective not only in reducing family members' distress, but also in getting their loved one into treatment. Their clearly written and well-organized narrative provides step-by-step guidelines for delivering this evidence-based approach. Through their decades of careful research and practice, Smith and Meyers have given the field a learnable and reliably effective clinical tool."
--William R. Miller, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico
"An outstanding resource for psychologists, social workers, and counselors. This book shows how to help family members encourage a loved one to get help for a substance abuse problem. Years of research show that the approach described in this book works. CRAFT is more effective than our traditional methods for dealing with this difficult clinical challenge. I highly recommend it."
--Timothy O'Farrell, PhD, Families and Addiction Program, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
"Finally, there is a research-based, comprehensive, respectful, and effective approach to empowering concerned significant others to take charge of their lives and manage their side of the relationship with a substance abuser. Smith and Meyers have done a wonderful job. Their sophisticated yet practical approach is described in a very user-friendly manner, including specific clinical strategies and extensive sample dialogues. I wish I had had this book years ago to give my staff in the alcoholism treatment clinic, and I also recommend it to counselors and therapists in more general settings. An invaluable contribution!"
--Carlo C. DiClemente, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland-Baltimore County
"This book is 'must' reading for all current and future practitioners in the field of substance abuse, and should be a required text in master's-level substance abuse courses in clinical psychology, social work, and other helping professions. In addition to reviewing the strong research base for their empirically supported treatment approach, the authors provide detailed instructions for clinical implementation. Everyone who values evidence-based practice--from students to experienced practitioners--will treasure this book."
--Allen Rubin, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Texas at Austin
"This book is the first detailed description of CRAFT, written for therapists and students who are interested in learning this very effective, empirically verified approach for helping the family members and significant others of substance abusers. Drs. Smith and Meyers are the preeminent experts on this approach, having developed it and conducted much of the research evaluating it. Written in a style that is accessible to therapists and students with varying theoretical perspectives, this volume is an excellent text for graduate courses and continuing education workshops in clinical and counseling psychology, pastoral care, family therapy, and substance abuse."
--Kimberly C. Kirby, PhD, Treatment Research Institute and University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine
