“In conclusion, this is a ground-breaking book that provides a comprehensive overview of the use of CBT with clients with addiction difficulties. It would be a useful guide for clinicians of varied experience looking to provide a first-rate CBT treatment for clients with addiction difficulties.” (Journal of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy, 2012) "A particuular strength of the book is the easily palatable and tasty mix of theory and practice; this is the result of a joing production by six psychologists with over 60 years' combined experience of working with people addicted to substances." (The Psychiatrist, 1 April 2011)

Applied Cognitive and Behavioural Approaches to the Treatment of Addiction: A Practical Treatment Guide offers practicing clinicians a guide to incorporating the latest cognitive and behavioural interventions in the treatment of their clients' substance use problems. Developed from several years of collective experience in clinical practice and work with relevant staff groups, this book reveals how such approaches can facilitate a deeper understanding of substance misuse in patients. It provides a comprehensive set of treatment interventions, including strategies to help clients manage their emotions without recourse to drugs and alcohol. A structured approach to treatment is also described - from assessment to formulation - and shows how cognitive approaches can be used to enhance motivation for change and assist with clients' engagement in therapy. Above all, this book reveals how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is invaluable in enabling clients not just to stop drug and alcohol use, but to to make the necessary changes that are vital to the success of sustaining this recovery. The techniques outlined are recommended for the specialist practitioner in the field of addiction, as well as for mental health professionals working in primary care, mental health secondary care, or private practice.
'All professionals who work in mental health services encounter people with substance use problems. Very often they feel ill-equipped to help. This is a lively and accessible book, written within a CBT framework, and based on the authors’ wealth of experience of working with drug and alcohol problems. It provides new ways of thinking about these problems and, crucially, offers clear and structured guidance on what to do to help – an inspiring and invaluable resource.' —Philippa Garety, Professor of Clinical Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London and Trust Head of Psychology, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, UK
