Changing Addictive Behavior

This volume proposes that prevailing clinical approaches to treating alcoholism and drug abuse are actually best suited to a minority of substance users--those with severe physical dependence and significant functional impairment. What about persons with mild to moderate addictive behavior problems, for whom intensive treatment may prove too costly or disruptive? How can professionals avoid deterring such individuals from seeking help? Integrating clinical and public health perspectives, the book examines how traditional therapeutic treatments and 12-step groups can be supplemented by a range of cost-effective interventions that attract more substance abusers into helping environments; can be delivered in primary care, workplace, or community settings; include alternatives to abstinence-oriented treatments when appropriate; and draw upon new theory and research on the process of addictive behavior change.
