Hazelden's bestselling program for addressing and treating co-occurring disorders is now better than ever. Updated to meet DSM-5 classifications, and with a beautiful new design, new titles that help you immediately find what you need, this evidence-based program addresses issues that directly impact clients living with a substance use disorder and non-severe mental illness.
Integrating Combined Therapies brings together the evidence-based approaches of motivational enhancement therapy (the initiation of change), cognitive-behavioural therapy (making change), and Twelve Step facilitation (maintaining change). With treatment divided into four phases - one for each of the three evidence-based approaches plus a transition phase - this manual shows clinicians how to successfully guide clients through the aspects of these therapies. To help empower clients and ensure flexibility in treatment, "treatment decision points" are placed between each of the phases, allowing clients and their clinician to decide how best to proceed with treatment. Mental health practitioners will find this guide particularly useful for the intentional focus on substance use issues.
The CD-ROM includes reproducible client material and fact sheets.
