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.

A growing number of 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 provid-ers will be able to prevent countless people from falling through the cracks.
