Handbook of Alcoholism Treatment Approaches

Hester, R., and Miller, W. (2002). Handbook of Alcoholism Treatment Approaches (3rd ed.). Boston: Allyn and Bacon.

This handbook surveys the various models that have been used to define alcoholism, ending with a discussion of what the authors call "an informed eclecticism." Using this approach, clinicians develop a spectrum of treatment approaches that have proved effective in practice, then match specific clients with the treatment methods that offer the greatest opportunities for success in these specific circumstances.
