About the Author

Michael D. Reiter, PhD, is Professor of Family Therapy in the Department of Family Therapy of the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at Nova Southeastern University. Michael is a licensed marriage and family therapist and has authored eight previous textbooks, 18 peer-reviewed journal articles, and has presented at national and international conferences on various aspects of family therapy.


"This second edition is a must for any therapist wanting a broader and more inclusive perspective on working with persons struggling with substance use. The additions, namely, the expansion of family diversity to include sexual and gender minorities, the neurobiology of addictions, motivational interviewing, ethics, expansion of treatment models and case application, offer a comprehensive text relevant for therapists-in-training and seasoned therapists seeking continuing education. Dr. Reiter's years of wisdom as a therapist and academic is evident throughout the book and especially in the self-of-the family therapist chapter that addresses issues crucial for growth and sustenance. Highly recommended!"

Joyce Baptist, PhD, LCMFT, Certified EMDR Therapist, Associate Professor, Kansas State University

"Down-to-earth and comprehensive, Substance Abuse and the Family (2nd ed.) allows you to grasp the nuts and bolts of assessing and treating individuals and families dealing with substance abuse issues. In this second edition, Reiter takes us to the crossroads of neurophysiological, genetic, cultural, ethical, relational, and risks factors of addiction. Providing hands on information for clinicians and students, Reiter exemplifies various family therapy approaches that might contribute to the process of recovery. One of the useful tools this book provides is applying each chapter's concepts to a standard case, which helped bring the concepts to life."

Jimena Castro, PhD, Assistant Professor, Our Lady of the Lake University
