Grief Work in Addictions Counseling is a book for practitioners and students in the field of substance abuse counseling who encounter grief and loss issues with clients recovering from addiction.

Enlightening the reader about loss, its relation to addiction, and the need to grieve these losses, this book provides specific strategies and techniques that readers can apply to both individual clients and counseling groups. Chapters address multicultural themes to help clinicians design treatments that will meet the needs of diverse genders, sexual orientations, cultures, ages, and spiritual orientations.

This book is useful both for professionals and as a supplemental textbook for students preparing to become addictions counselors.

Reviews and Endorsements

"On the market today there is an abundance of books addressing grief and loss. Some focus on assisting mental health counselors in their practices and others are self-help focused. Grief Work in Addictions Counseling is unique. It focuses on grief work applied to addiction counseling, a focus that has long been needed. It is a valuable tool for both addiction professionals and individuals in addiction recovery." - Kirk Bowden, PhD, chair of the Addiction and Substance Use Disorders Program at Rio Salado College, president of the International Association of Addictions and Offender Counselors, and past president of NAADAC, the Association of Addiction Professionals.
