Griffiths, Ronno and Pearson, Brian (1998) Working with drug users. Community Care Practice Handbook no. 25 Aldershot: Wildwood House .

Many social workers feel unprepared to work with drug users. The authors suggest that normal social work skills are as applicable to work with drug users as they are to any other client group. This book aims to provide the necessary background based on the authors' many years of experience in a variety of drug agencies, to allow social workers to intervene successfully.
