Practical and comprehensive, Foundations of Addiction Counseling explores an array of techniques and skills that a new practitioner will need in the real world while providing a thorough review of the research, theory, and history of addiction counseling. With chapters written by expert scholars, this text covers many topics in-depth often ignored by other comparable books, such as professional issues in addictions counseling, the assessment of client strengths, gender issues in substance abuse, working in rehabilitation centers, and working with clients with disabilities.
