Richard J. Frances, Shelden I. Miller, Avram H. Mack, 3rd ed. Clinical Textbook of Addictive Disorders, New York: Guilford Press

There are so many books out on addiction and mental health disorders. In my family coaching program I use a lot of bibliotherapy. In addition to your own professional journals, Hazelden Press is probably the largest publisher in the addiction field, so check out their professional section. It always stimulates new ideas for me. Likewise, Gurze is the largest publisher on eating disorders.

The Journal of Alcohol Studies comes highly recommended by Dr. Stanger because its publications include the most recent and up-to-date alcohol research.

If you have a question about a resource, or have one to share, please contact Dr. Stanger.

Additionally, the web offers a cornucopia of information on myriad web sites.
