Even though many criminal offenders have a history of substance abuse, the link between criminology and substance abuse has, until now, not really been explored in treatment. The Provider's Guide and The Participant's Workbook redress that problem and tackle both of these interrelated issues at once. The books draw on two years of research and make use of state-of-the-art techniques for treatment, such as: cognitive therapy; the states of change treatment model; and relapse prevention and assessment measures for individualizing treatment within a group. Their appeal lies in a humanistic approach which will help motivate clients to change negative self-concepts and help break.
