Choice Reviews


“This masterful book provides an overall framework for understanding how people take up addictions and how they move away from them. The second edition organizes a wealth of recent research about prevention, treatments, and biological and social influences. It puts knowledge about every aspect of psychosocial treatments for addictions at the reader's fingertips, and includes interesting, relevant case studies. DiClemente is an excellent writer with a relaxed and engaging style and a passion for his subject. This is an invaluable resource for college courses on addictions—I can't wait to use it in my classes.”

—Theresa B. Moyers, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico


Addiction and Change, Second Edition, incorporates the considerable body of addiction-related research that has accumulated over the last dozen years. DiClemente presents an important integration of many areas of research and advocates a personalized approach to treatment planning. He emphasizes that achieving and maintaining change is a process, not a product. This book will expand therapists’ toolboxes while serving as a guide for case conceptualization. Well done!”

—Linda C. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, President's Distinguished Professor, and Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, President's Distinguished Professor, College of Psychology, Nova Southeastern University


“The updated second edition attests to the major, expanding influence of the TTM on our understanding and treatment of addictive behavior. Decades of research inspired by the TTM are well reflected here; the book is also replete with references to other approaches and is sprinkled with clinical case examples that illustrate and amplify. Especially highlighted is the broader context of cultural and social factors that affect the processes of change. The author's personal anecdotes and self-reflection add a relevant personal touch to the book, which could easily serve as a text for the large swath of disciplines aiding those on their journey through change.”

—Peter M. Monti, PhD, Donald G. Millar Distinguished Professor of Alcohol and Addiction Studies and Director, Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Brown University


“I thoroughly enjoy DiClemente's ability to take complex concepts and translate them into language that therapists and counselors can understand and utilize with their patients. More than most textbooks I use with graduate students, this one gives depth and texture to the idea of 'meeting clients where they are at.' Students and therapists consistently feel that the book helps them individualize treatment strategies and interventions more than any other source. I will definitely assign the second edition in my courses.”
