BRAD DONOHUE is a licensed clinical psychologist and Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is director of the Family Research Services, which is focused on developing evidence-based treatments that include family support. NATHAN H. AZRIN is retired from Nova Southeastern University's Center for Psychological Studies, where he was professor for thirty years.

Drs. Donohue and Azrin have done an outstanding job of putting onto paper the intricacies of their exemplary FBT approach. This is an extremely positive and strength-focused text that provides therapists with a structure and the tools to implement interventions that have a long history of promoting the types of clinical changes desired by family members and community stakeholders. ?From the Foreword by Scott W. Henggeler, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Director, Family Services Research Center, Medical University of South Carolina "What a wonderful gift to adolescent substance abuse treatment providers and instructors to have this step-by-step guide on how to implement the evidence-based family behavior therapy (FBT). Kudos to Donohue and Azrin for writing a book that includes all the materials needed to implement FBT with adolescents, including prompting checklists, handouts, and worksheets." ?Karol Kumpfer, Ph.D., Professor of Health Promotion & Education Director, International Studies College of Health, University of Utah and Former Director of SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Prevention "Treating Adolescent Substance Abuse Using Family Behavior Therapy is an important resource for those who wish to provide an empirically-supported, strengths-based, behavioral treatment for adolescents with substance use problems and their parents. The assessment guidelines, checklists for each component, and the CD-ROM with all therapy forms will be invaluable resources for implementing the FBT approach." ?Susan Harrington Godley, Rh.D., Senior Research Scientist and EBT Coordinating Center Director and Mark D. Godley, Ph.D., Director, Research & Development, Chestnut Health Systems, Illinois "In my practice with adolescents, FBT has proven exceptionally effective in drawing families closer together and yielding improved outcomes. This remarkably supportive approach helps youth develop critical skills necessary to live a fulfilling and drug free lifestyle. This book clearly illustrates how to implement the interventions with ease and exemplifies the deeply gratifying experience of FBT." ?Stephen A. Culp, M.Ed., NCC, LPCC, Addiction Services Therapist, Comprehend, Inc., Kentucky
