"The accomplished author team of Reid Hester and William Miller provides a comprehensive, results-based guide to alcohol treatment methods. Along with the contributions of notable practitioners if the field, this text serves as an aid to graduate students and professionals. The authors stress the necessity of choosing different treatment protocols based on scientific research and a client's needs. This text also offers an up-to-date review of the treatment outcome literature, which illustrates that there are a number of treatments that are consistently supported by research. The subsequent chapters provide mini-treatment manuals for approaches with the most scientific support, with sections on matching clients to particular treatment and descriptions on how to utilize each particular treatment plan. The authors have consolidated the information necessary to develop individualized, multidimensional treatment that can meet the needs of a diverse client population."--Back cover.
