The last decade has been witness to considerable improvements in the understanding, development, and application of several different psychosocial intervention techniques that have been shown effective in controlled research studies. This book includes recent articles discussing elements of each of the several commonly used psychosocial interventions. These areas of psychosocial interventions include relapse prevention therapy, community reinforcement, voucher-based programs, self-help therapies, and motivational enhancement therapy. The selections in this book on psychosocial treatments for substance use disorders will provide the reader with a broad overview of the field as well as the specific information needed to use these therapies in patient care. The review articles also give the reader the resources useful in expanding one's own understanding of the theoretical basis of these interventions. This text has been compiled with the goal of placing the major, efficacious psychological therapies for the treatment of addiction in one incisive text that will encourage the use of these therapies by clinicians working with many types of patients in a variety of clinical settings.
