Addiction Intervention
Strategies to Motivate Treatment-Seeking Behavior
by editors Robert K. White, MA, CEAP and Deborah George Wright, MA

This resource will complement your current knowledge of the problems leading to and the consequenses of chemical dependency by using the tools of intervention - the words, the steps, and the strategies.

Full Description:   

Addiction Intervention: Strategies to Motivate Treatment-Seeking Behavior shows you how to use the tools of intervention--the words, the steps, and the strategies--to be a change agent in the lives of individuals with alcohol and drug addictions. It is full of effective strategies and case studies coming from widely respected specialists across several disciplines. You'll learn how you can get people to seek help for their chemical dependence, resolving the cause of their problems rather than temporarily fixing the symptoms or side effects of their addictions.

Whether you're an alcohol and drug educator, intervention trainer, physician, nurse, social worker, employer, lawyer, judge, or counselor, Addiction Intervention will help you find ways to confront chemically dependent people and motivate them to change their lives. You will find the tools of intervention easier to wield than you might otherwise think as you read about:

  • how physicians can assess symptoms using various diagnostic tools, initiate conversation with a patient, and overcome resistance to referral
  • how clinical therapists can develop response-specific intervention strategies that are appropriate to clients' behavior pathology
  • conducting effective performance-related workplace interventions
  • the development and design of impaired professional committees
  • alternative models for peer and administrative interventions
  • the methodologies of student assistance programs and teams
  • brief, structured therapy for the family of an addicted person
  • recent changes in the criminal justice system that have encouraged judges to refer individuals to treatment
  • the One-Stop Re-Employment Social Services Center

    Addiction Intervention brings within your reach results-oriented intervention. Don't continue to offer band-aid solutions or skirt around the real problem of addiction. This book will help you help people get their lives back on track permanently.
