Abstract

A model for conceptualizing four basic types of suicidality among substance abusers is presented and some practical tips for treating the problem are offered. The model is derived primarily from direct clinical experience with patients in addiction treatment settings. These crisis-intervention tips are intended to aid counselors in handling suicidality as it is manifested in substance-abusing populations.
