Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the practitioner guide and the corresponding client workbook, outlining the sessions and topics to be covered. There are many different types of substance use problems in terms of severity and adverse effects on the client, family, and significant others. Therefore, treatment will be more effective if the approach is tailored to the needs and problems of each client. A challenge for practitioners is to adapt treatment strategies for each client to address the substance use problem and other medical, psychiatric, family, or social problems.
