This guide provides what hasn't previously been available – a concise book encapsulating the key issues that helping professionals will need in order to address substance use, concurrent disorders and gambling problems in the people they see.

Without specializing in mental health or addiction, helping professionals can make a significant difference in whether people address these problems. Even brief interventions can make a huge difference in their lives.

Substance Use, Concurrent Disorders and Gambling Problems in Ontario: A Guide for Helping Professionals will help you to be aware, sensitive and skilled in screening for these problems in the people you see. It will also provide you with the necessary tools to refer people for treatment or – if you have the appropriate training – to provide basic counselling.

This book includes:
• ways to establish rapport with clients
• tips for asking the difficult questions
• insight into the role of stigma in how professionals respond to people with these kinds of problems
• a discussion of how culture influences people's perception of these problems
• information on the latest screening tools for substance use, concurrent disorders and gambling problems
• motivational interviewing techniques
• a discussion of stages of change as they relate to substance use and gambling problems
• information on involving and supporting family members
• a listing of relevant CAMH resources and publications
• an appendix of treatment and support services in Ontario.

The book is a valuable resource for people working in doctors' offices, community health centres, child and family services, or any other health or social service organization.
