Becoming an Addictions Counselor: A Comprehensive Text, Second Edition,  is the only addictions counseling text to address knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Evidence-based findings, cutting-edge treatment techniques, and a focus on critical thinking show future counselors how to respond to clients' needs rather than impose "cookie-cutter" routines. An experiential learning approach is encouraged with structured activities and exercises, and its devotion to significant coverage of ethics, treatment planning and case management. The text also covers mentally ill chemical abusers, individual, group and family counseling skills, and clinical treatment issues.
