Product Description

In this practical guide and reference book, Richard Craig reveals to clinicians, medical professionals and laymen an understanding of gambling addiction and treatment implications. The addictive gambler questioning himself, or in recovery, may also find it helpful in understanding all that is involved in this illness, including its process and treatment. Basics include: 1) How pathological gambling and the connection between behaviors and consequences are assessed from the onset of care. The use of ASAM, DSM IV diagnostic tools, and the relationship to third-party reimbursement are also explored. 2) All aspects of a patient’s assessment process are discussed to enhance the quality of treatment, along with improving the relationship of the clinician with not only the patient as he/she transitions into a healthier more stable life, but with significant others and insurance organizations. 3) It concludes with continuing care considerations that complete a course of care for the compulsive gambler and those working with them. This book creates a clear and simple understanding of the complex nature of the compulsive/pathological gambler. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to better understand the gambler.
