"In conclusion, this book provides a useful overview of the broad range of issues relevant to working with adolescent addiction. It will be particularly helpful for psychiatrists and other medical professionals who have little experience working with this population by way of alerting them to treatment related issues for consideration."  (Early Intervention in Psychiatry, 15 April 2014)

"This is an important resource for those in the field of adolescent mental health. It is not overly weighted with medical terminology, and the authors have done an excellent job of providing information with the depth that clinicians will find useful without being so clinical that the other intended readers would be lost. They have done a thorough job of providing more than just cursory information on the presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of adolescents with substance abuse problems. Although the issue of substance abuse is multifaceted, with many physiological and environmental factors at play, the book does a commendable job of organizing and outlining the evaluation and treatment modalities of substance abuse in the adolescent population."  (Doody's, 11 October 2013)

"Nevertheless, this is the best compendium of evidence in the round in this field and an excellent reference book."  (Addiction, 1 September 2013)

"The wealth of information is brought together by a consummate clinician who cares profoundly for the young people who have come to him - whether for court reports or treatment - and who is determined to make a difference. The clinical eye that chose the authors and edited the whole has provided just what politicians as well as clinical and criminal justice practitioners are so often calling for - an evidence base for appropriate action. It should be widely read by those practitioners but also influence policy and improve life prospects for many, many young people." (From the Foreword by Pamela J. Taylor and John Gunn, 2012)
