Hardbound, 406 Pages

If the quality of this volume translates into influence on clinicians and other researchers in this area, knowledge about effective treatments, prevention efforts, and instruments should increase among those who provide care to youth. Drs. Wagner and Waldron have assembled an impressive array of contributors who are active, important investigators into developmentally-appropriate approaches to the assessment, prevention and treatment of substance use problems among adolescents. ...I can recommend this volume to a broad audience of readers who, I am certain, will find this book useful and informative. Given the paucity of material on effective treatment interventions, the authors could have given us much less and still advanced knowledge in the area. We are fortunate that they chose to give us more in the form of this quality volume.
