Reviews

"For over a decade, the stages-of-change model has created a paradigm shift in the conceptualization, design, and delivery of treatment services for substance use disorders. This updated volume reflects the ongoing evolution of the theoretical model and its ever-expanding clinical application. Particularly noteworthy is a completely revised chapter on group treatment and an intriguing new chapter on applications in health care and other settings. This book is both a valuable treatment guide for clinicians and an excellent classroom text for students."--Arnold M. Washton, PhD, Executive Director, Recovery Options, New York City and Princeton, New Jersey "This is a unique volume produced by leading experts in the addiction field. It presents key concepts related to the process of change and shows how they can inform treatment. The book is straightforward and highly readable, with engaging clinical examples."--Marc Galanter, MD, Director, Division of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, New York University School of Medicine "The path toward successful resolution of substance use problems is not an easy one. This book offers up-to-date research and clinical information focusing on processes of change when working with individuals with problematic substance use. The roadmap to change offered in this book can be used by a wide range of clinicians. Updates in the second edition address the current needs of the field and add to the utility of the book for clinicians, students, and instructors."--Shulamith Lala Ashenberg Straussner, DSW, LCSW, Silver School of Social Work, New York University "I have been using this text for four years in my Treatment Delivery course. The text describes in detail the stages encountered in making any significant lifestyle change, and helps students conceptualize and understand the process of recovery. Students get valuable insights into how to plan interventions that assist clients to move from each stage of change to the next."--E. Michael Bartlinski, LCSW-C, Adjunct Professor of Human Services, Anne Arundel Community College, Arnold, Maryland (on the first edition)
