Addiction

Addiction, whether it is through problematic substance use or a range of other behaviours such as sexual, gambling, or eating, is recognised by the World Health Organisation as one of the primary health issues facing the western world.

The IMAT
The Integrated Model of Addiction and Treatment is a text book that evolved from teaching Addiction Counselling at Swinburne University.

This comprehensive model draws together the biological, psychological, systems and other models of substance use and addiction into a comprehensive framework that enables counsellors, case managers, support workers and other health professionals to both understand and work effectively with clients presenting with addicted behaviours.

This comprehensive textbook is due for publishing mid 2014, however a chapter describing the model can be downloaded here. (updated December 2013).

A brief summary of the chapter can be downloaded here.

A flyer of training I provide in this area can be downloaded here.
