Manual Aids Counselors of Depressed Substance Abusers

A new manual from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment will help substance abuse counselors work with clients who exhibit depressive symptoms. SAMHSA released the manual, number 48 in its Treatment Improvement Protocol series, on April 10.

It consists of three parts: Part 1, Managing Depressive Symptoms in Substance Abuse Clients During Early Recovery; Part 2, Managing Depressive Symptoms: An Implementation Guide for Administrators; and Part 3, Managing Depressive Symptoms: A Review of the Literature, which is available only online.

Part 1 covers topics including counseling approaches, cultural concerns, counselor roles and responsibilities, screening and assessment, treatment planning and processes, and continuing care. Part 2 contains information for administrators about incorporating the management of depressive symptoms into their substance abuse programs, including providing a systematic approach to designing and implementing a supportive infrastructure. Part 3, the literature review, summarizes current knowledge and scientific findings and is available at this site.

TIP 48, "Managing Depressive Symptoms in Substance Abuse Clients During Early Recovery," is available at this site. Free print copies are available; contact SAMHSA's Health Information Network by ordering online at this site or calling 877-726-4727.
