Abstract: 

As a clinician or research in the field of mental health or addictions, this book will offer you powerful insight into how acceptance and mindfulness-based interventions are being successfully used to treat a variety of addictive behaiviors, ranging from substance abuse to gambling addiction.

Mindfulness and Acceptance for Addictive Behaviors features articles by leading substance abuse and addiction researchers. Each article illuminates the mindfulness and acceptance-based treatments that work best for particular addictive behaviors, reviews empirical data, and discusses future directions for research and treatment applications. One of the articles presents the first controlled study on treating pornography addiction, an increasingly common problem that has been a challenge for therapists to treat in the past. An essential resource for mental health professionals, researchers, and students interested in the most effective treatments for addiction, this book will dramatically impact the way addictions of all kinds are viewed and addressed in therapy.
