Psychotherapy Of Addicted Persons. By Edward Kaufman. New York: Guilford, 1994, xvi + 232 pp., $27.95.

Review by:
Arthur A. Lynch

By the time most addicted persons reach treatment, they usually have severe problems with substance abuse that have created or dramatically complicated other problems in their life. The goal of treatment is to ameliorate the substance abuser's present suffering and to help him or her maintain a drug-free life. Kaufman's Psychotherapy of Addicted Persons is a valuable contribution to the psychoanalytic treatment of individuals within the broad spectrum of addiction and substance abuse. Kaufman writes to the audience of professionals and paraprofessionals who work with addicted people.
