This manual, filled with activities and worksheets for substance abuse groups, will increase your effectiveness as a therapist working with outpatient treatment groups that intervene with alcohol and other substance dependence.
Increase Your Therapy Practice with Substance Abuse Clients
You can double your therapy practice or create a new one with substance abuse clients, but you need a theoretical orientation, activities, and worksheets for your new groups. Charlie Donaldson, a recovering alcoholic with 25 years of sobriety, who has run substance abuse groups for 20 years, has compiled a clear and comprehensive introduction and 15 worksheets which will make your group leadership easier and more effective.
Don’t miss out on this chance to increase your client load and revenues. Three factors coalesce to make alcohol and drug abuse treatment among the most important and fruitful of our therapeutic endeavors.
- We see a new consciousness — on the part of alcoholic and normal drinker alike — to the damage and violence done to the substance abuser and others.
- There’s a new conviction that interventions work, encouraging the courts to refer almost everybody arrested for drunk driving to agencies for treatment.
- A new partnership between the courts and treatment providers called DWI, Drug, or Sobriety Court has mushroomed across the country. The results of this alliance are strikingly gratifying, and they offer a great opportunity as a therapist.
If you’re already part of this exciting movement, our book will help you do your work more effectively and more easily. If you are thinking about entering the world of substance abuse treatment, let our book serve as your guide and helper.
