Detailed is an integrated, flexible psychotherapeutic approach that emphasizes building a strong therapeutic relationship, engaging clients "where they are," and addressing substance use within the larger context of their lives.

Techniques are brought to life with numerous case vignettes, and appendices include reproducible client forms and handouts.
