They describe and illustrate evidence-based treatment methods, including cognitive-behavioral, 12-step, motivational, pharmacological, and family approaches.

The text explains the latest clinical science and shows how to apply it in practice.

Of special utility, the companion Web page features more than 25 additional widely used, ready-to-download assessment tools, assembled in one place for the first time, together with the authors' guidance for using them throughout the process of treatment.
