Where to buy it


This book is a valuable resource for health and social service providers who are not specialists in addiction or mental health issues, but who would like to talk about these issues with clients.

Many people who come to helping professionals are struggling with a substance use, gambling or mental health problem – or more than one of these problems concurrently. This guide provides information about how to empathically and non-judgmentally raise these issues with clients, and how and where to refer clients for a more thorough assessment and treatment, when needed. With these tools in hand, service providers will be able to prevent their patients and clients from falling through the cracks.
