A dramatic rise in the number of 'multi-problem' clients have forced community-based addiction treatment centers to answer some tough questions: How do you effectively treat record numbers of diverse and difficult clients? How do you tailor evidence-based interventions to a client's individual background involving possible incarceration, ongoing supervision, a history of trauma and a high risk of relapse? Moreover, how do practitioners work effectively within a society that stigmatizes drug users? Because the largest and fastest growing segment of the community-based addiction treatment population includes those who are mandated, this book addresses the task of 'making mandated addiction treatment work.' It is a practical guide for how to adapt and integrate evidence-based addiction treatments to create a unified treatment model, and a valuable tool for those in public health, criminal justice, and social welfare services.

Throughout this important research, Wallace effectively balances the use of literature review and case studies, providing best practices that can be applied in a variety of addiction treatment settings in both urban and rural communities. With this work, Wallace has clearly advanced this field. Wallace provides an excellent review of the important concerns and requirements for decision makers and providers regarding mandated treatment. Her book will be helpful as a primer for drug court jurists. New drug treatment providers will surely benefit from this work, as will seasoned veterans. The book is also an excellent choice for drug treatment policy makers, capacitybuilding assistance providers, and schools of public health and social work. (Psyccritiques—Contemporary Psychology: Apa Review Of Books)Evidence-based research, criminal justice statistics, integrated theory, dynamic case vignettes, public health perspectives, a menu of treatment, practice guidelines: they are all here. The result is a powerful framework that addiction practitioners can follow in tailoring treatment to client characteristics including mental disorders and level of motivation. Enriched with detailed case examples of carefully timed and individually tailored interventions with clients with dual diagnoses, Making Mandated Addiction Treatment Work is the book I have been looking forrr (Katherine van Wormer, Ph.D., MSSW)The title captures the essence of this book. It addresses ways in which mandated treatment can work and advances evidence to support this claim. Above all, this is a hopeful work which should be well received and utilized by policy makers and practitioners alike. The criminal justice system, the child/welfare/protective service system, those who fund addiction programs in the public and private sector will benefit from the practical wisdom of this book, in planning and implementing programs to meet the needs of an underserved and neglected population. The spirit, wisdom and dedication of the author shine through this remarkable book. Truly, it is a unique and valuable contribution to the addiction field, a book which is must-read for people in the addiction field not only in the United States, but also in the wider international community..
