The Treatment of Drinking Problems : A Guide for the Helping Professions

Description

This third edition represents the further development of a highly successful clinical text which has been acclaimed internationally. Two new authors bring strong additional expertise to the writing team, and the unique feature of this book remains its ability to address the realities of the clinical world directly while offering an authoritative review of the research literature. Extensively revised throughout, of particular note are completely new chapters covering alcohol as a drug, causes of excessive drinking, drinking problems and the life course, and a new look at both the physical complications associated with alcoholism and the organisation of treatment services. The authors adeptly address the everyday needs of the clinical front-line through presentations which are enlivened through personal clinical experience and illustrated by case vignette. A classic text in its field, this comprehensive and timely new edition will ensure its continued popularity.
