Integrating client stories, research and evidence-based strategies, this Workbook offers educational information, clinical tools and coping techniques to assist addiction patients on the journey toward recovery.

Chapters include psycho-educational information on the science behind addiction and examine how patients engaging in resilience behaviors can alter brain functions. A set of three appendices then evaluates what "works" for the treatment of individuals with addictive disorders including ways to engage patients in the treatment process and ways to assess residential treatment programs. Lastly, a glossary of the "language of recovery" terms provides patients and their family members with the guidelines to monitor treatment gains, support their journey of recovery and bolster their resilience.

Healthcare providers and those suffering from addictive disorders alike will benefit from the approachable discussion of the science and history behind addiction, the personal case-studies and the patient-friendly set of coping toolbox-activities designed to develop lasting behavioral changes.

"This book offers an excellent combination of hope and inspiration, useful factual information and actual skill instruction and the language needed to achieve and maintain recovery. There is also valuable attention to managing interpersonal problems and to the use of cultural strengths and spiritual-religious resources. I expect that both therapists and their clients/patients will want to have a copy for their frequent reference. Strongly recommended!"

Michael F. Hoyt, PhD, author of Brief Therapy and Beyond; editor of Therapist Stories of Inspiration, Passion, and Renewal; and co-editor of Single-Session Therapy by Walk-In or Appointment

"This is a valuable Workbook that provides concrete explanations and recommendations for people who struggle with addictive behaviors. Dr. Meichenbaum has vast experience in the field of mental health and is considered a world-renowned expert. He certainly understands that the skills needed for overcoming addictions go well beyond ‘Just say no'. He focuses on cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, general coping and life skills in accessible, conversational ways—and his vivid case examples ('Recovery Voices') are particularly helpful. I highly recommend this Workbook to anyone seeking relief from addictive behaviors, as well as those professionals who help people with addictions."

Bruce S. Liese, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Director, Cofrin Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment; Professor of Family Medicine and Psychiatry; Courtesy Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Kansas, USA

"Don Meichenbaum is not only one of the foremost psychotherapy scholars of our lifetime; in keeping with his book’s theme, he is an excellent ‘storyteller'. This patient Workbook provides a wealth of practical, user-friendly and evidence-informed coping tools that addicted individuals can use in their journey of recovery. Meichenbaum’s Workbook is a refreshing new approach to treating addiction, and an antidote to the ever-present hype in the addiction field. Highly recommended!"

Scott O. Lilienfeld, PhD, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor, Emory University, USA; editor, Clinical Psychological Science
