Description - Manual of Adolescent Substance Abuse Treatment by Todd Wilk Estroff

The terrible dangers of substance abuse are magnified during adolescence, when disrupting the development of critical physical, mental, emotional and social skills magnifies the potential for physical and psychosocial harm. In this work, three contributors - all with hands-on clinical experience, and some with first-hand experience as recovering substance abusers - combine the exceptionally complex theory with the practice of diagnosing, evaluating and treating adolescents with substance abuse disorders. Using clinical case vignettes to illustrate the difficulty of daily care for substance-abusing adolescents, the authors also include practical advice on how to select the best treatment for these patients. They detail a broad range of topics - epidemiological data, risk factors, diagnosis, role of the primary-care physician, the ideal evaluation, treatment planning and case management, inpatient and outpatient treatment settings, the often-controversial option of psychopharmacology, spiritual (non-theological) treatment, family therapy, relapse management, and the developmental perspective - and chapters conclude with a practical and clinically integrated case vignette approach to reviewing the knowledge from previous chapters.
