Providing a text for undergraduate and entry-level graduate students in social work, and a resource for practitioners, Johnson shows how to gather and use multi-systemic and multi-level client data for assessing and treating substance abuse in individuals and families. Johnson, a practitioner with more than 20 years in substance abuse practice, begins with an overview of the field including prevalence of substance abuse problems and definitions of use, abuse and addiction. Additional chapters describe the effects of specific drugs, prominent theories and models for practice, methods for client engagement and communication, the influence of the community on individuals and families seeking substance abuse services, and strategies for multi-systemic treatment planning.
