"This book is well timed and critically needed because it is a unique focus specifically working with the individual drug abuser which is written within the Carl Rogers’ person-centered approach. This book is matchless and deeply insightful. Bryant-Jefferies offers critical wisdom from his many years of counseling persons with substance abuse problems and brings into the text the guidance and skill of an experienced supervisor. No doubt this book will remain a reference for a long time to come for all of us working in the field of counseling persons with drug abuse problems."


"The book is very readable and accessible; it is unusual in that it would be helpful to anyone involved from either side of the divide between therapists and users."

—Dr. Maria Bain, Psychiatrist, Alcohol Problems Service, Royal Edinburgh Hospital, in Progress in Neurology and Psychiatry

"This excellent book on drug users and the counselling process applied Carl Rogers’ person-centred approach as a medium to demonstrate the way that drug users can be aided in their journey towards abstinence. …the book also offers insights into the day-to-day experience of drug users in a way that is both factual and informative about the ingoing client–therapist dialogue."

—Nick Grenville, in Nursing Standard

"It gives readers a real understanding and insight into the world of a drug user and the possible contributors to the problem. Actual and potential clients could gain encouragement about the benefits of person-centred counselling. Health professionals can find an easy-to-follow explanation of Rogers’ counselling model and how counselling allows a troubled client to grow and heal."

—Caroline Morris, in Addiction Treatment Today

"As a practitioner I am grateful that Richard Bryant-Jefferies has written this book. The fact he is breaking new ground is indisputable."

—Catherine Hayes, in Health Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal
