The second edition of Making Mandated Addiction Treatment Work integrates cutting edge research with evidence-based addiction treatments to create a unified and effective treatment model for mental health professionals and those in training. Because the largest and fastest growing segment of the community-based addiction treatment population includes those who are mandated, Barbara C. Wallace provides insightful best practices for tailoring addiction treatment to diverse and challenging clients, including those who may have a history of trauma or mental disorders, different levels of motivation, and a high risk of relapse. Applicable in a variety of treatment settings in both urban and rural communities, this text weaves together new research and vivid case studies into a concise and practical resource. This book is ideal for practitioners and students of public health, criminal justice, and social welfare services.
