Academic Press, a division of Elsevier, would like to announce the publication of a new title in psychology; Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment by Peter Miller, PhD.
The growing emphasis on accountability and cost effectiveness in the field of addictions treatment is leading to major changes in standards of care. Inconsistent practices based solely on clinical intuition rather than hard scientific evidence of treatment efficacy are rapidly becoming unacceptable. Translating science-based treatments into clinical settings is now an important priority. Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment provides a state-of-the-art compilation of assessment and treatment practices with proven effectiveness.
This graduate level textbook for clinical psychology students and psychiatry residents covers evidence-based practices for the assessment and treatment of addiction, and discusses the treatments that work through explicit case examples and contributions by well-known researchers on addiction treatment. Miller gives students the simple ways to evaluate treatment effectiveness, and offers an accompanying web-site with exam questions for students and instructors.
