Van Wormer, Katherine and Thyer, Bruce A., eds. Gambrill, Eileen (2010) Evidence-based practice in the field of substance abuse: a book of readings. Los Angeles: Sage.


This anthology presents state-of-the-art material to help researchers better understand which interventions work and why, and it includes editorial commentary and critical thinking questions for each selection. The editors have organized this volume according to the process of evidence-based practice—introduction to evidence-based practice, assessment, gender-based and culturally sensitive interventions, treatment issues and innovations, and policy considerations. Connecting science and clinical research to the practical needs of persons with substance and mental health disorders, this volume is a groundbreaking resource for those who need empirically based material on treatment innovations.
