An outstanding book on the treatment of addictions, including the treatment of disturbed feelings of anger, depression, anxiety, and other personality problems that often accompany addiction. I can think of no other book on addiction that so thoroughly presents the use of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. Use it to your great advantage!

Finally, there is a clear exposition of a comprehensive clinical approach to the treatment of addictive behaviors and associated psychological problems. One of the key strengths of this book is that it presents an integrated treatment approach as an overarching model that therapists can use as a guide as they help their clients manage or overcome their addictions. It also provides an integrated approach to the treatment of co-occuring disorders for clients who have both addictions and other psychological problems that are often reciprocally interrelated. The addictive behaviors field owes a debt of gratitude for Dr. Bishop's seminal contribution, which represents the cutting edge of the emerging paradigm shift in addiction treatment.
— G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D, from the foreword
This timely book is a breath of fresh air and will be welcome reading by those in the addictions field. Numerous clinical cases are sprinkled throughout the text and provide excellent examples of how to apply the cognitive-behavioral treatment model. Dr. Bishop, himself a scientist-practitioner, has provided the field with a balanced blend of science and clinical practice that will be of use to health care practitioners and researchers alike.
