“I have been using this book for a year in a chemical dependency intensive outpatient program, with great success and enthusiasm from the clients. Now our agency is using this format in all of our groups, including daytime, evening, and women's programs. It's a wonderful book, particularly because all the handouts I need are included and it's all completed in-group with no homework. I am very grateful to Dr. Velazquez and her coauthors for this user-friendly and effective program.”
Elizabeth Ramos, CSAC, Cumberland County Mental Health Center, Fayetteville, North Carolina

“[Title] is an excellent resource for counselors. The book describes an integrated multi-session group program designed to enhance motivation and help people enact change. A particular strength of the program is that each session can stand alone, allowing treatment to be customized for different groups or even implemented with individuals. Abundant reproducible materials are also a useful feature.”
Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Nova Southeastern University

“Clinicians working with substance abusers will use the materials in this book on a daily basis. The exercises and tools are highly effective and engaging, strengthen the development of critical skills for recovery, and provide a framework for exploring client concerns and hopes in a supportive and nonthreatening way. This book complements other volumes that have become classics in the stages of change and motivational enhancement approaches. Full of concrete suggestions and practical advice, it is grounded in years of pioneering clinical work and research. As a substance abuse treatment professional, I will rely upon its wisdom in my own clinical work. It will also be an excellent text for graduate-level students of psychology, social work, and substance abuse counseling.”
Madeleine Dupre, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor, Substance Abuse Program Manager, DeJarnette Center, Staunton, Virginia

“A valuable addition to the treatment literature. A major strength of the book is the use of a motivational interviewing style approach to facilitate clients' understanding, commitment, and utilization of the different behavioral strategies for movement through relevant change processes at various points during treatment. This is an important resource for students and professionals interested in learning more about evidence-based treatment strategies for substance use problems. Given the solid foundation of the approach, the clarity and specificity of the implementation procedures, and the availability of tools to measure client progress, the book could easily be adapted for use in clinical trials with a variety of clients and settings.”
Allen Zweben, DSW, Center for Addiction and Behavioral Health Research and School of Social Welfare, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
