Juhnke, Gerald A (2002) Substance abuse assessment and diagnosis: a comprehensive guide for counselors and helping professionals. Hove: Brunner-Routledge .

Substance abuse counseling has gone beyond being viewed as optional training; instead it is fast becoming an essential part of the education of helping professionals. In this book, Dr. Gerald Juhnke presents an innovative, practical model to be used in the assessment and diagnosing of substance abuse and related co-morbid disorders.

Substance Abuse Assessment and Diagnosis includes practical "nuts and bolts" direction on how to facilitate a thorough, multi-tiered substance abuse assessment. This book uniquely incorporates detailed examples of how to use individual and significant other clinical interviews, including the CAGE, SUBSTANCE -Q, etc, standardized specialty instruments, drug detection types, and personality instruments to accomplish this feat. This is the only book of its kind that provides practical detail on how to use and score these varied assessment instruments-including the newest "cornerstone instruments," the MMPI-2, the SASSI-3 and the recently released SASSI-A2.
