"The book is going to prove to be an extremely useful resource forclinical staff."
-Professor David Clark, Drink and Drug News, July 2006
"Waller & Rumball's book has two outstanding features.First, it achieves admirably its ambition of being a thoroughlypractical and eminently useful, modern guide to treatment andpreventive work with alcohol and drug users. Secondly, an accurateempathy with the experiences of those suffering from alcohol anddrug problems and a sincere respect for them as unique individualsis obvious on every page. For these reasons alone, the book ishighly recommended for specialists in the field and thosegeneralists who come into contact with alcohol and drug problems intheir work." (Addiction, Vol 101: 1, January 2006)"Only just seen this classic - how have I have missed it? This booklooks at a wide range of interventions that can be used to helpdifferent people with different drug and alcohol problems at allstages. A breath of fresh air and a 'must read' for allpractitioners and commissioners in the field."
-Clare Gerada, Psychiatric Bulletin, 2006
"The excellent book Treating Drinkers and Drug Users in theCommunity by Daphne Rumball, an addiction specialist, and thelate Tom Waller...describes the treatment options for substancemisuse - focusing on psychosocial interventions, many of which canbe carried out in a community and indeed primary care setting. Theevidence in support of the treatments is well presented and thebook is superbly referenced, acting as a valuable resource forfurther study. The book is well written and is accessible toprofessionals and the general public. It goes without saying thatthis book will provide an invaluable source of information.moreover it is a scholarly text and extremely well written. Istrongly recomend this book and hope that in time it will become aclassic."
