• The Therapist's Guide to Addiction Medicine: A Handbook for Addiction Counselors and Therapists
This book spotlights the essential biological and medical knowledge that a therapist or counselor must have in order to work effectively in addiction treatment. The author uses his expertise, developed over 35 years of addiction medicine practice, to give therapists and counselors the information and tools needed to help their clients recover from addiction, a chronic, progressive, and incurable disease.

“Barry Solof’s The Therapist’s Guide to Addiction Medicine is a great book! Dr. Solof is a master clinician. In a few words, he says what it has taken me a lifetime to learn. This book takes complex clinical findings gleaned from the last twenty years of medical research and boils it down to the essential lessons. It brings understanding that bridges the medical and social treatment of addiction. I plan to give a copy to all my consulting therapists, physicians, and patients. For anyone who wants to understand the medical and biological basis of addiction, with its life-gripping impact on the brain and body, this is the go-to manual.”

The Therapist’s Guide to Addiction Medicine is so informative and personally written, I learned and grew while I enjoyed reading. Dr. Solof has practiced addiction medicine for multiple decades and addresses the important questions before the reader can even formulate them. He clearly expresses his opinions regarding effective treatment while encouraging therapists to be flexible within their own approach with clients, allowing for whatever works for each individual. Armed with this book, therapists will be trained and able to make accurate assessments and sound clinical interventions with their addicted clientele. This book should be a standard text in any counselor training program!”

For anyone interested in entering the field of addiction treatment as well as for experienced counselors, this is a must-read.”

“Dr. Solof has written a book that crystallizes the wisdom and experience of a brilliant doctor who has spent decades successfully treating the chemically addicted. He cites cutting-edge research every therapist needs to know to offer clients the best chance at a successful recovery. There is thoughtful consideration of the interaction between the biological and psychological aspects of addiction and the psychopharmacological and psychotherapeutic choices for treatment. This book can be used as a textbook for students and trainees in chemical dependency programs, as well as a practical reference for clinicians.”
