Addiction, Assessment, and Treatment with Adolescents, Adults, and Families examines addiction concerns ranging from prevention to relapse, offering effective intervention techniques and assessment tools to ensure delivery of the best possible service to clients who represent a variety of populations and mental health issues. Leading addiction researchers address new developments in theory, methodology, treatment, and assessment on counselor beliefs, contingency management, group treatment, rapid assessment instruments, behavioral couples therapy (BCT), family-based intervention, motivational interviewing, and 12-step programs and faith-based recovery. This essential professional and academic resource presents case studies, reviews, research findings, and empirical papers that offer unique perspectives on a variety of topics, including evidenced-based practice, theory of reasoned action, harm reduction, juvenile justice, and treatment outcomes.

Addiction, Assessment, and Treatment with Adolescents, Adults, and Families presents sophisticated, cutting-edge theory and practice concepts that provide professionals, practitioners, and educators with a more varied focus than most current available books on addiction. Counselors working in mental health settings and EAP programs, psychiatric nurses working in hospitals and outpatient settings, social workers, and students pursuing degrees in social work, nursing, psychology, and criminal justice will benefit from the book’s wide range of appropriate addiction, treatment, and prevention methodologies.

Topics addressed in Addiction, Assessment, and Treatment with Adolescents, Adults, and Families include:
understanding the gap between research and practice in substance abuse counseling
prevalence and patterns of illicit drug use among juvenile offenders
the relationship between the reported substance abuse of African-American and Hispanic youth and their perceived attachments with their primary caregivers
using a harm reduction approach to the evaluation of treatment outcomes
using a nonconfrontational approach to substance abuse counseling when addressing client denial
why contingency management interventions are underutilized, especially in community settings
how to determine if and when Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Adapted Motivational Interviewing (AMI) are effective
how to use nonabstinence-based prevention services in working with adolescents
how to use and score the K6 scale to screen serious mental illnesses
how to use Receiver Operating Characteristics analysis to evaluate rapid assessment instruments
Addiction, Assessment, and Treatment with Adolescents, Adults, and Families is a vital professional resource and an invaluable aid to adults, adolescents, and families of anyone suffering with some level of addiction.

Reference Notes Included

“VERY TIMELY. . . . COVERS SOME OF THE LATEST AND BEST-SUPPORTED PRACTICES in the field of addictions, including contingency management interventions, motivational interviewing, non-abstinence-based treatments, couples therapy, and family treatment. The contributing chapter authors are a first-rate cast of qualified experts, and the book is most highly recommended for professionals in the field of addictions.” -Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, Professor, College of Social Work, Florida State University

“Carolyn Hilarski's edited text focuses on the intersection of assessment and treatment approaches to a population of substance abusers that has received little attention in empirically based research. The book benefits readers by pulling together important research studies in the substance abuse field. It will be VALUABLE TO MSW STUDENTS INTERESTED IN WORKING IN THE SUBSTANCE ABUSE FIELD AND TO DOCTORAL STUDENTS LOOKING TO CONDUCT RESEARCH ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE TREATMENT.” -Robert H. Keefe, PhD, ACSW, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, College of Human Services and Health Professions, Syracuse University
