Dual Diagnosis
An Integrated Approach to Treatment


October 2000 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Written in a clear, informative, and easy to follow manner, Dual Diagnosis is an important book on one of the hottest topics in mental health today. After opening chapters on general issues and problems with dual diagnosis, the book follows with in-depth discussions on major illnesses and analyzes the issues relevant to each when drug abuse is involved, as well as discussing the empirically validated treatment approaches available. The book closes with a summary and integration of the conclusions from earlier chapters and presents a grid showing the relationships between certain disorders and the processes of change that have been shown or theorized to be particularly helpful in their treatment. This is a book that will be extremely useful to practicing professionals in mental health and substance abuse fields, as well as students in psychology and drug abuse.
