Reflecting the latest content in the DSM–5, The Spectrum of Addiction presents a comprehensive overview of addictive behaviors and habits from early use through risky use, severe-risk use, and addiction. Authors Laura Veach and Regina Moro draw from their experience in both teaching and counseling to provide real-world knowledge and evidence-based practices for working with clients who fall within the spectrum of addiction ranging from experimentation to physical addiction and recovery. With a unique focus on neuroscience, integration of CACREP standards, and extensive coverage of addictions across the lifespan, the book serves as a practical resource for future addiction counselors. The Spectrum of Addiction is part of SAGE’s Counseling and Professional Identity Series. To learn more about each text in the series, please visit sagepub.com/cpiseries.
