A leading professional resource and course text, this book provides practical guidance for treating clients with substance use disorders in a variety of contexts.

Clinical techniques are clearly explained and illustrated with helpful case examples. Important topics include harm reduction; strategies for working with family members; and ways to meet the needs of specific populations, including women, adolescents, older adults, LGBT clients, and those with frequently encountered co-occurring problems.
