Addiction Treatment
Theory and Practice


June 2000 | 448 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

American Journal of Nursing, 2001 Book of the Year Award in Psychiatric & Mental Health Nursing

Developed by a highly experienced author working in both nursing and psychology environments, Addiction Treatment presents the caregiver with a brief global perspective of different types of addictions, techniques for identifying and assessing the addicted client, and strategies for effective change. The book utilizes assessment, planning, and intervention summaries to enable the reader to scan for immediate recall and application. Chapter objectives enable readers to use the book as a continuing education tool, and the appendix provides an overview of perspectives on addiction and its treatment by a variety of organizations heavily invested in the care of the addicted client. Illustrative cases (with both successful and unsuccessful outcomes) are included throughout.
