Reviews

"I particularly like the dual-diagnosis recognition in this manuscript. We have plenty of alcoholism and drug addiction books [on our shelves], but a good dual-diagnosis book with an emphasis on solid psychotherapy and psychology practice has been needed for some time. . . . The research is solid, the quotes and tables are current, and the book is imminently readable. You guys made a good pick with this one."

— John C. Lewton, University of Toledo
