The first step in reducing stigma around alcohol and drug use is normalising conversations about our relationship with these substances. Tania has created a must-read guide for clinicians and service providers to assist in this process, packed full of techniques,
strategies and practical guidance on how to work with clients wishing to address their alcohol or drug use. I recommend Keep Calm and Treat Addiction for anyone wanting to better understand evidence-based addiction treatment philosophy.

This book is a valuable resource for all health professionals who work with people with addictions. Tania calls upon her own lengthy experience to off er words of wisdom and ever-so-practical advice for both novices entering this challenging and rewarding area of health practice and to those more experienced looking to ‘brush-up’ on their skills and knowledge. Tania’s accessible and personable style makes the book easy to read and easy to re-read. I would highly recommend

Keep Calm and Treat Addiction is a very insightful resource written for professionals and clinicians, which also holds valuable information for family and friends of people who use drugs. It is written clearly and
provides an understanding of what both the patient and their loved ones endure. With valuable key points and professional advice, Tania’s extensive experience and knowledge in addiction treatment – and passion to help others – shines through. Personally, as the family member of someone who uses drugs, I found this book a unique and much sought after tool, full of excellent advice. I highly recommend
it. I wish I had something like this years ago. Well done Tania!
