Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment
- Peter Miller, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, USA
In the United States, substance abuse treatment programs are being mandated to provide evidence-based treatment, with funding and insurance reimbursement being contingent on their doing so. Up until now, inconsistent practices based on clinical experience and intuition rather than hard scientific evidence of treatment efficacy have been the basis of textbooks. This graduate level textbook will provide clinical psychology students and psychiatry residents a state-of-the-art compilation of evidence-based practices in the assessment and treatment of addictions. This textbook will be more clinically useful than anything currently on the market and will better prepare students for the demands faced in private and institutional practice.
Primary Graduate level Clinical Psychology students in Addiction program or taking an elective Addiction Assessment & Treatment course, as well as Psychiatry residents taking Addiction didactics. Secondary Practicing clinicians treating patients with addictive disorders.
