Enlightening and practical, Addictions Counseling Today invites readers into the heart of addictive thinking, offering first-person accounts of what it is like to experience different addictions.

Also included are the various theories and models of addiction, with a unique chapter on the neuroscience of addiction. Focusing on the new DSM-V classifications for addiction with an emphasis on CACREP and treatment, this provocative, contemporary text is an essential reference for readers wanting to gain a deeper understanding of those with addiction.
