The Definitive Guide To Addiction Interventions

The first academic text on the subject of addiction interventions, expert interventionist Dr. Stanger co-authored The Definitive Guide to Addiction Interventions: A Collective Strategy.

At the request of Routledge, Dr. Stanger set out to provide a collective strategy to introduce people to the best practices in addiction intervention, bridging the gap between theory and practice.

The book makes intervention success accessible, while pulling from decades of experience in behavioral health and academia with rich detail and thorough analysis. The book includes downloadable worksheets to further enrich the reader’s practical experience.

Released in the Fall of 2018, The Definitive Guide has received glowing praise from scholars and practitioners alike.

“The Definitive Guide to Addiction Interventions by Louise Stanger and Lee Weber is a much-needed contribution to the addiction field. The text follows an easy to understand framework that flows from Dr. Stanger’s decades of work in the field.”

Dr. John Clapp, PhD, FAAHB, Professor and Interim Dean, USC School Of Social Work
