ADDICTION TREATMENT covers the biological, psychological, and social aspects of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. The authors bridge the gap between the popular twelve-step and harm-reduction approaches, thus illuminating how practitioners can guide clients down a trusted path that is tailored towards the client's particular needs. Through a number of first-person narratives about the experience of addiction, students will discover a realism and depth not commonly found in textbooks. In addition, the authors include student-friendly topics, such as the case against so-called underage drinking laws, to draw students into the material and illustrate the importance of reducing harm within the biopsychological framework that ties the text together. Updated to reflect the DSM-5, this edition also includes the latest insights into social determinants of health, trauma-informed care, working with transgender populations, and other timely topics.
"Van Wormer and Davis provide a comprehensive overview of the field of addiction theory and treatment. The text is an excellent summary of the current literature on addiction. I selected this text when I first designed my class, 'Models of Addiction.' I have used all three editions of the text and I have been very pleased with each version. I look forward to continuing to use this text in future years."
— John M. O'Brien, Ph.D., Mental Health Associates of Maine
