Learning the Language of Addiction Counseling, Third Edition introduces students to the field of addiction counseling and helps them develop the knowledge, understanding, and skills needed to counsel people who are caught in the destructive cycle of addiction.

  • Revised chapters reflecting important changes in the field

  • New chapters on "Spirituality and Addiction Counseling" and "Pain and Substance Abuse"

  • New case studies, interactive exercises, and suggested reading and resources at the end of each chapter
