Treating Drinkers and Drug Users in the Community is the second book in a new collection from Addiction Press designed to address the significant challenges that addiction presents to modern society.

The drugs field has undergone a phase of rapid change in recent years and all the non-medical treatment interventions for those with alcohol problems and dependence can be equally helpful for drug users. This has opened the way for unification of alcohol and drug treatment services at a clinical level, with potential for more efficient service provision and for effective interventions which can be readily adopted in a wide range of settings. Modern drug and alcohol services and all professionals working with substance users will benefit from the initiatives and procedures discussed in this book.

Key features:
* Describes a wide range of treatments for young people and adults with drug and alcohol dependence
* Integrates alcohol and drug prevention and treatment
* Provides an invaluable and accessible guide for many different professionals
* Sets out assessment criteria, questionnaires, and a joint treatment framework
