Publisher Comments:

Two experienced addiction treatment professionals present a practice-oriented approach to understanding and overcoming addiction to cocaine, with the addition of a treatment protocol for working with clients addicted to methamphetamines. Citing the latest research, Washton and Zweben explain how to approach clients about their drug use, when and how to involve family members, and how to prevent relapse. Specific strategies are brought to life with case examples.

The book includes an overview of cocaine and methamphetamine use in America; an explanation of the effects of stimulant drugs on the brain, body, and behavior; the process by which addiction develops; signs of stimulant abuse and dependence; treatment options; establishing abstinence and stages of recovery; the distinct benefits of individual, group, and family psychotherapy; and twelve-step programs. Appendices include patient handouts and worksheets, a resource list for patients and family members, and a resource list for treatment professionals.
