Evidence-Based Treatment in Substance Abuse and Dependence encompasses the developments in the field over the last decade, blending theory, techniques and clinical flexibility.

The book would define the characteristics, classification, and prevalence of substance use disorders, and provide the clinician with practical guidelines applicable across a variety of treatment settings and patient groups. Drawing on the recent research in the field, the authors will provide the practicing clinician and student with an up-to-date understanding of the epidemiology, etiology, course and prognosis of substance abuse disorders that would be relevant to clinical practice. In addition to describing phenomenology and etiology, the book provides a comprehensive guide to the assessment and treatment of DSM-IV-TR substance abuse disorders (SUDs), including abuse and dependence of alcohol, stimulants, opiates, hallucinogens, cannabis/marijuana, sedative, and partydrugs. Illustrative case histories will help the reader to understand the phenomenology and assessment of SUDs. Lastly, the presentation of empirically-based therapeutic approaches will help the clinician to decide with treatment will match his/her patient's needs.
