Understanding and Treating Adolescent Substance Abuse

"Treating substance abuse in adolescents requires a creative integration of individual, group, and family therapy, along with an understanding of addiction and recovery, family dynamics, and adolescent development. This book incorporates all of these elements into its discussion. Its thoroughness makes it a valuable addition to the literature in this relatively new clinical specialty." --Joseph K. Nowinski, Private Practice "This is a hopeful book that promotes a comprehensive view of a complicated difficulty." --Virginia Child Protection Newsletter
