In adapting a new, clinically focused manual from their popular
American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Substance Abuse
Treatment, now in its fourth edition, Dr. Marc Galanter and Dr.
Herbert Kleber intend Psychotherapy for the Treatment of Substance
Abuse to be of practical application to both experienced clinicians
and those new to the field substance abuse intervention. This
manual: - Reviews the most common psychotherapeutic interventions
for opiod-related and alcohol-related substance abuse disorders.-
Features chapters authored by leading authorities on each
intervention covered.- Gives valuable insight into the substance
abuse disorders that affect over 20% of the U.S. population at some
time in their lives.- Outlines diagnostic tools such as patient
assessment, patient placement criteria, and how to test for and
identify recent drug use. - Confirms that the most common
interventions for virtually all substance abuse disorders are
psychotherapy and behavioral approaches. Only one in ten patients
with substance abuse disorders actually seek and receive treatment.
The text is intended to address and overcome the shortage of
substance abuse treatment providers and the inadequate training of
many clinicians in the intervention techniques they will need in
order to help these patients. Psychotherapy for the Treatment of
Substance Abuse brings together chapters by experts in their
respective treatment specialties, written in a consistent format
and style for easy reference. Chapters include relevant case
studies on the following topics: - Drs. Greenfield and Hennessey's
chapter on assessing the patient combines key didactic points with
the compassion and insights of two experienced therapists.- Dr.
el-Guebaly lays out the cross-cultural aspects of addiction therapy
and its increasing importance in our culturally diverse society. -
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (Dr. Carroll), motivational therapy
(Dr. Di Clemente), and contingency management (Dr. Higgins) are
probably the three most studied behavioral interventions for
substance abuse disorders, though not the most used. - The
principles outlined by Drs. Frances, Mack, and Lightdale in
covering psychodynamic psychotherapy can improve insights into and
practice of other modalities. - Twelve-step facilitation (Dr. Ries)
lays out how to improve the chance of successful referral to
Alcoholic Anonymous as well as how to utilize its precepts in other
settings.- Network Therapy, a specialty practiced by volume editor
Marc Galanter, is a multimodal approach to rehabilitation that
enlists the support of family members and friends to try to achieve
prompt abstinence and ongoing relapse prevention. Multiple
techniques discussed in this volume are brought to life in an
accompanying DVD that reinforces the text by sharing reenacted
segments of actual sessions of multimodal Network Therapy. This
text is highly recommended for psychiatrists, psychologists, social
workers, psychiatric nurses, residents and fellows, and anyone
interested in substance abuse treatment and prevention.
