Psychotherapy and Substance Abuse

Please register to download the white paper

Substance  abuse is a complex, multidimensional disorder. While it is traditionally  characterized as a "biopsychosocial" disease, the role of  psychotherapy in treating addiction is paradoxically given short shrift or  ignored completely in traditional treatment approaches based on the disease  model.

In  this white paper Arnold M. Washton, Ph.D, and Michael D. Lukens, Ph.D., of the  Washton Lukens Institute of Palm Beach discuss an integrated approach to  treating addiction that goes beyond the addiction itself to address multiple  areas of an individual's psychological and emotional functioning, as in any  psychotherapy.
