The complexity of the treatment of drug and alcohol dependency is reflected in the constant changes in policy towards treatment and the many therapeutic models that exist. Using research, discussion of literature and clinical examples to illustrate theoretical positions, this book explores why arts therapies offer such an appropriate and effective treatment approach. Contributors examine the philosophy of treatment and show how psychotherapeutic thinking contributes to the understanding of the difficulties experienced by this client group. The book emphasizes the importance of group therapy for such clients and looks at the practice of different arts therapies and their development in a number of settings.
