About this book

Emerging approaches to treating addictions and minimizing relapse are spotlighted in this idea-packed volume, as alternatives or adjuncts to standard psychological and pharmacological therapies. Its biopsychosocial perspective delves into the causes and processes of chemical dependence, and the clinical characteristics it shares with other addictions (e.g., food, sex, gambling, online activities), to identify client needs that substance abuse may fulfill. Accordingly, the diverse modalities featured here address substance addiction on multiple levels, offering clients physical or mental stimulation and/or emotional relief as well as affording different degrees of autonomy. Methods can be mixed and matched to reinforce treatment goals, and clinicians can tailor treatment to individual issues and interests to assure clients nuanced and meaningful care.

 

Included in the coverage:

 

·         Use of herbal medicine to treat drug addiction.

·         EMDR therapy and the treatment of substance abuse and addiction.

·         Evaluating the change processes in drug users’ interventions.

·         Web-based interventions for substance abuse.

·         Physical exercise and treatment of addiction.

·         Mindfulness to reduce the anxiety during the abstinence

·         Neurofeedback to deal with craving and anxiety symptoms

Psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and addiction counselors and educators will find Innovations in the Treatment of Substance Addiction a valuable sourcebook for understanding addiction—and intervention—in its wider context.

Reviews

“The intended audience includes students and professionals who are interested in the pharmacology and physiology of addiction as well as selected and alternative treatments that are available. … the text provides a refresher to many and some new information to all and is worthwhile reading for students new to the field and those coming to the end of their careers.” (Heidi Israel, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 62 (16), April, 2016)
