The second edition of this book takes the view that the family, not just the alcoholic member, is the client. This approach is now well accepted in psychological circles. Family therapists and students can use this book to learn about substance abuse from a systemic viewpoint and chemical dependency counsellors will learn about family systems thinking and theory. The thoroughly revised book has additional models of evaluation, new models of treatment, ten years of research results, and updated references.

Definitely a must have for anyone that will be going into the counseling field. I feel it would also make for some really great homework assignments for someone in therapy for alcohol abuse/dependence. I have had this book since undergrad and still refer to it in my graduate work.
