A widely adopted practitioner resource and course text, this book shows how to apply knowledge about behavior change in general-and the stages-of-change model in particular-to make substance abuse treatment more effective.

They draw on cutting-edge theory and research to explain what works (and what doesn't work) at different stages of change. Rich clinical examples illustrate the "whats," "whys," and "how-tos" of using the stages-of-change model to inform treatment planning and intervention for individuals, groups, couples, and families.

Chapter on stage-based brief interventions in health care, social service, and community settings. Group treatment chapter has been significantly revised.
