Review Quotes
"Only just seen this classic - how have I have missed it? This book looks at a wide range of interventions that can be used to help different people with different drug and alcohol problems at all stages. A breath of fresh air and a 'must read' for all practitioners and commissioners in the field." 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 thoroughly practical and eminently useful, modern guide to treatment and preventive work with alcohol and drug users. Secondly, an accurate empathy with the experiences of those suffering from alcohol and drug problems and a sincere respect for them as unique individuals is obvious on every page. For these reasons alone, the book is highly recommended for specialists in the field and those generalists who come into contact with alcohol and drug problems in their work." Addiction, Vol 101: 1, January 2006"The excellent book Treating Drinkers and Drug Users in the Community by Daphne Rumball, an addiction specialist, and the late Tom Waller...describes the treatment options for substance misuse - focusing on psychosocial interventions, many of which can be carried out in a community and indeed primary care setting. The evidence in support of the treatments is well presented and the book is superbly referenced, acting as a valuable resource for further study. The book is well written and is accessible to professionals and the general public. It goes without saying that this book will provide an invaluable source of information. moreover it is a scholarly text and extremely well written. I strongly recomend this book and hope that in time it will become a classic." Clare Gerada, Psychiatric Bulletin, 2006
