The book is built around a core of treatment interventions that were published in several well-known journals on substance abuse treatment and research in social work practice. The purpose of the reader is to collect and comment on various forms of treatment that have proven effectiveness and to demonstrate how they have been applied in practice. In addition, the editors will provide a bridge analysis across chapters and sections connecting key themes across chapters, and they will provide a discussion in each chapter that describes why the intervention was chosen, it's significance and why it is believed to be noteworthy. In addition, each chapter will contain critical thinking questions and the book will contain a glossary of key terms.

This text is prescribed for the BSocSc Honours in Clinical Social Work (Substance Abuse) Programme as well as recommended reading for an undergraduate course of the Bachelor of Social Work programme where a module focuses on substance abuse. This text addresses the contemporary emphasis on evidence based practice in the field of substance abuse very well.
Too advanced for our students.
Useful information but not general enough for an undergraduate introductory course on substance abuse.
Very useful book
