Praise for Substance Abuse Treatment for Youth and Adults

"David Springer and Allen Rubin have compiled a valuable practice guide for any professional who works with substance–abusing youth or adults. This is a volume that should be on every practitioner′s bookshelf!"
C. Aaron McNeece, Dean and Walter W. Hudson Professor (Emeritus) College of Social Work, Florida State University

"A major stumbling block to adoption of evidence–based practice in the real world of clinical practice has been the absence of clinician–friendly guides. Such guides need to be understandable, free of technical research jargon, infused with clinical expertise, and rich with real–life examples. Rubin and Springer have hit a home–run with this series, which has all of these characteristics and more."
Edward J. Mullen, Willma & Albert Musher Chair and Professor, Columbia University
