“The authors have provided an excellent foundation for the understanding of addiction and its context and recommendations for intervention. New and experienced practitioners will be interested in this book and will make reference to it throughout their working lives.”

Drug and Alcohol Review (on the first edition)


“This second edition provides up-to-date coverage of essential topics in addiction treatment, deftly integrating clinical science and practice. Readers in the early stages of training will find it clear and accessible, while more advanced clinicians and clinical scientists will be attracted to the deep knowledge base of the experienced authors. I strongly recommend this book as a source of foundational information in any graduate course or professional training program in addiction.”

—Stephen A. Maisto, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Syracuse University


“This is not an ordinary second edition. The changes are substantial, including five new chapters on important topics such as mindfulness and implementation of evidence-based treatments. Clinical examples are plentiful. A new chapter titled 'Stuff That Comes Up' addresses a variety of clinical situations that can occur with any treatment—for example, dealing with intoxicated patients. Treating Addiction is a text that can be used in both undergraduate and graduate substance use courses, and is a useful update for practitioners as well.”

—Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, and Linda Carter Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University


“'Must' reading for all who work with persons with substance use disorders. What makes this book unique is that it goes beyond specialist care in addictions to offer a practical guide for professionals in a wide range of fields. It draws on a variety of strategies of proven effectiveness that can be individualized to meet client needs. The case management section is especially useful, as is the new chapter on mindfulness. This is an invaluable text for advanced courses in addictions, family studies, and mental health counseling. Miller and his coauthors have helped to revolutionize substance abuse treatment by moving the field from a focus on harsh confrontation to a more compassionate approach.”

—Katherine van Wormer, PhD, MSSW, Department of Social Work (Emerita), University of Northern Iowa


“A comprehensive, easy-to-follow text. Although substance use disorders are inherently complex, this text manages to provide a clear overview of their biological underpinnings; how they develop; and how to assess, diagnose, and treat them. The first edition was an instant classic; the second edition is greatly enhanced by new data and additional content, including a critical new chapter on implementation of evidence-based treatment methods. This is an excellent resource and a 'must have' for students and clinicians who are looking to apply state-of-the-science knowledge to understanding and treating addiction.”

—Katie Witkiewitz, PhD, Regents’ Professor, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico


“I assigned the first edition to my graduate students in two different addiction courses. They read the entire book and we discussed it in class—a significant percentage of the final exam was based on this text. Miller is a living legend in counseling, and I have used his motivational interviewing techniques for almost two decades to move my clients through the stages of change. This is my go-to book for college seniors and graduate students who want to learn about addiction treatment and helping clients into and throughout the recovery process. It is also an excellent resource for professionals with addictions certifications to stay current on the latest information about our incredibly important field.”
