Written for a broad audience of medical and behavioral healthcare professionals, The Definitive Guide to Addiction Interventions: A Collective Strategy introduces clinicians to best practices in addiction interventions and bridges the gap between the theory and practice of successful intervention. Synthesizing decades of fieldwork, Louise Stanger explores the framework for successful invitations to change, what they look like in action, and how to adjust approach by population, and Lee Weber serves as editor. The authors summarize and compare intervention models in use today and explain the use of family mapping and individual portraiture as clinical tools. The text also teaches clinicians to troubleshoot common situations as they help move clients toward positive life decisions. Practical, ready-to-use clinical tools follow the text in downloadable worksheet form.
