Substance Abuse Treatment for Criminal Offenders takes a comprehensive look at what interventions work in assessing and treating substance-abusing criminal offenders. This volume is packed with practical information on both traditional and cutting-edge approaches to treating offenders, including women, juveniles, and those with the dual diagnoses of substance abuse and a mental disorder.

Because most substance abuse treatment today is provided to the criminal population, there is a pressing need for resources that bridge criminal justice and addictions treatment. From assessment and diagnosis through individual, family, and group interventions and monitoring probationers, this groundbreaking work, the latest in the Forensic Practice Guidebooks series, will be an essential resource for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, criminologists, sociologists, correctional officers, and others working in community-based and institutional settings.
