Treating Addicted Offenders
A Continuum of Effective Practices
Editors: Kevin Knight, Ph.D., and David Farabee, Ph.D.

How professionals around the country are successfully working to improve interventions—and outcomes—for substance abusing offenders … and what still needs to be done.

Addiction is a chronic, relapsing condition. It is essential that we consider treatment not as a single discreet event but as a continuum—a broad array of services to help offenders overcome lifestyles of substance use and criminality. Only then can we help turn offenders’ lives around and help them reenter society as productive citizens … and protect our communities over the long term. Treating Addicted Offenders: A Continuum of Opportunities offers dedicated professionals an invaluable one-stop resource on the most significant research on addiction treatment, and provides in-depth reviews of field-tested programs from professionals on the front lines, to inspire and inform your own work.

 You’ll learn...

  • How different jurisdictions are implementing innovative probation- and drug court-based programs
  • Which screening protocols and instruments are most effective
  • New findings on treatment readiness—and practical guidance on getting offenders receptive to programming
  • Critical elements for in-prison TC programming
  • How ancillary and aftercare programs can cement early gains

Over half of all jail and state prison inmates have admitted to drug use in the month before committing the offense that put them “in the system.” A third of state prison inmates committed their current offense while under the influence of drugs; 53% of state prisoners and 45% of federal prisoners meet the DSM-IV criteria for drug dependence or abuse. To help you meet the challenge posed by this critical offender population, turn to Treating Addicted Offenders for authoritative guidance to research and practice.
