Review quote

"Dr. Jaffe is well established as an authority in the field of alcohol and other substance abuse in adolescents. His earlier "Workbook for Adolescent Dependency Recovery" (APPI, 1990) has become a standard resource in the field. There is no question that these two additions--a 'first step' intervention workbook for the adolescent patient and an instructional and informational manual for staff--will be of great value to every clinician and every program dealing with this important and serious problem." -- Jerry M. Wiener, M.D., Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, The George Washington University School of Medicine, Past President, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatryshow more
