Substance abuse is one of the most frequent and serious problems encountered by human service workers, criminal justice professionals, and clinicians. Unfortunately, many professionals in these fields receive little, if any, formal training about this problem. Our planned encyclopedia presents state-of-the-art research and evidence-based applications in A-to-Z format. Rather than create a compendium of specific drugs and drug effects, for which there are any number of fine titles already available, the focus will be upon practical knowledge and skills for pre-service and in-service human service professionals, including substance abuse counselors and prevention specialists.

Theory and Practice of Addiction Counseling by Pamela S. Lassiter and John R. Culbreth brings together contemporary theories of addiction and helps readers connect those theories to practice using a common multicultural case study. Theories covered include motivational interviewing, moral theory, developmental theory, cognitive behavioral theories, attachment theory, and sociological theory. Each chapter focuses on a single theory, describing its basic tenets, philosophical underpinnings, key concepts, and strengths and weaknesses. Each chapter also shows how practitioners using the theory would respond to a common case study, giving readers the opportunity to compare how the different theoretical approaches are applied to client situations. A final chapter discusses approaches to relapse prevention.

The book is designed to help counselors develop an appreciation for and confidence in their preferred set of philosophical ethics and become ethically autonomous professionals.

This book tells the inside story of government attempts to deal with the American alcohol problem from 1970 to 1980, the most important decade in the history of alcohol legislation since Prohibition, with the famous Hughes Act as its centerpiece. We meet the friends and supporters of Harold Hughes, the charismatic senator and former governor from Iowa, and Marty Mann, the beloved "first lady of Alcoholics Anonymous." The author, herself a major participant in these events, describes the struggles and triumphs of this small band of recovered alcoholics and their friends as they bared their souls before congressional hearings and succeeded in convincing a Congress and three reluctant Presidents to support this effort. Nancy Olson offers us a unique behind-the-scenes view of the alcoholism legislation that changed America during the 1970s. Both those interested in alcoholism and those intrigued by the legislative process will find this book fascinating. Well-documented and clearly written, this book tells a story that has long needed telling. Ernest Kurtz, author of Not-God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous Written in an engaging style, the book includes vivid accounts of incidents and exchanges, with a cast list including members of Congress and their staffs, federal administrators, scientists, and representatives of the alcoholism movement and of the alcohol industries. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the modern development of thinking and action about alcoholism and alcohol issues in the U.S. Robin Room, Professor and Director of the Centre for Social Research on Alcohol and Drugs, Stockholm University, Sweden

Call Center Training and Ethics for professionals is a book that all professionals working in the treatment industry should read. The priority of successful facilities is saving lives! The goal for detox units, residential treatment centers, PHPs, IOPs, halfway houses or sober living facilities is to fill their empty beds with quality clients that need their services. Ethics mandate that clients be matched with the facility that can best meet their needs. Many facilities struggle to maintain their census with the proper clients for their facility. Owners and managers spend thousands of dollars on marketing and advertising. The landscape and the laws of marketing treatment facilities and filling beds is changing. The thinking has changed, the terminology has changed, even the definition of addiction has changed. You work hard to get the proper clients into your programs. It's amazing how little training many individuals working in Call Centers have had prior to actually working the phones in the Call Center. Professionals must be prepared before they can execute properly in any position, in any industry. When it comes to saving lives, and keeping a facility open by keeping the beds filled with the proper clients, you would think and hope that training would be paramount. The current landscape in the treatment industry demands that all professionals working in the industry know the importance of ethics in the workplace. Best-Selling Author, Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin Ph.D. developed the curriculum for Call Center and Ethics training by sharing the strategies, skill sets, tools, and techniques that worked for him and his staff, and other interventionists, Directors, Owners, Therapists, Counselors, and CEOs for over two decades. Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin Ph.D. has created a program to help professionals to fill beds with the clients that need them, always keeping ethics as a priority with each and every client and their family. Get Your Copy Today! Rev. Dr. Coughlin has already trained hundreds of addiction professionals on the fundamentals and techniques of Call Center and Ethics including counselors, therapists, recovery coaches, techs, CEOs, Owners, Interventionists, and entire teams at facilities. The results have always been the same; the owners, CEOs, and Directors have been amazed at what they didn't know about operating a successful, ethical call center. This Amazing Book has already helped many individual professionals and facilities and ultimately has helped those who need treatment to find the correct facility, and to stay in treatment.
