Synopsis

Praise for Treating Adult Substance Abuse Using Family Behavior Therapy

"Treating Adult Substance Abuse Using Family Behavior Therapy is a welcome addition to the evidence-based substance use disorder treatment literature. This volume provides a large amount of helpful information, materials, and step-by-step instructions for implementing and troubleshooting family-based behavioral treatment for substance use problems."
—Mark B. Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Professor, and Linda Sobell, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Associate Director of Clinical Training, Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale–Davie, FL

"I strongly recommend Treating Adult Substance Abuse Using Family Behavior Therapy. Donohue and Allen give readers a step-by-step approach using empirical strategies, client–therapist dialogues, checklists, and handouts that make the therapy process clear and concrete. This book is a must-read for all who want to use FBT in their practice."
—Robert J. Meyers, PhD, Emeritus Associate Research Professor of Psychology, University of New Mexico

"I am delighted with the book Treating Adult Substance Abuse Using Family Behavior Therapy. As a relatively new therapist, I used the FBT protocols in a practice setting and the highly structured interventions provided me a sense of confidence while developing professional competence in working with very challenging populations. Although simple in theory, families are empowered by these absolutely positive techniques."
—Amy S. Bizjak, Staff Development Training Coordinator, Bethesda Children's Home, Meadville, PA
