BOOK EXCERPT:

The textbook is divided into five sections, with the first providing an excellent overview and historical context for the topics that follow. Section two is concerned with screening tools, the evaluation process, and the use of the laboratory. The third section contains chapters on specific substances. Section four covers treatment issues for special populations including minorities, geriatrics, adolescents, AIDS patients, and patients with co-morbid psychiatric illness. The final section explores treatment selection and specific treatment modalities including individual, family, group, cognitive, and psychopharmacological approaches. There is a particularly practical chapter for the primary care clinician in a busy office-based practice. The book concludes with an excellent bibliography and index. As might be expected, the diversity of authorship results in a variety of sometimes conflicting viewpoints; however this is not distracting and only tends to add breadth to this impressive effort.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book offers six guiding principles that are key to lasting recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. It will help you understand why they're important, how they relate to the Twelve Steps, and why they work.

Anyone who has recovered from addiction to drugs or alcohol knows that getting sober is only the beginning. Working the Steps, patching life back together, and living sober are where the real work lies. While the Twelve Steps provide a program of lifelong recovery, recovery experts Sterling Shumway and Thomas Kimball have identified six essential values, or principles, that reinforce the Steps and that are key to achieving lasting recovery:

  • • Hope: A reawakening after despair; to live with greater confidence
  • • Healthy Coping Skills: Managing the pain and stress of life
  • • Sense of Achievement and Accomplishment: Moving beyond the limits of addiction toward personal goals
  • • Capacity for Meaningful Relationships: The positive support and connection with family and peers
  • • Unique Identity Development: The emergence of a unique positive identity
  • • Reclamation of Agency: The internal knowledge that you have choices in your behavior

Using their research, personal stories, and guided journals and exercises, Shumway and Kimball thoroughly unlock these complex principles for recovering addicts and their families, and provide practical steps for applying them to a long-term recovery program.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Harvard Cocaine Recovery Project, a National Institute on Drug Abuse-funded randomized clinical trial, was initiated in 1986 to compare different approaches for treating cocaine abusers. Modified Dynamic Group Therapy (MDGT), one of the models used in the study, is a short-term supportive-expressive psychodynamic group approach specifically adapted for cocaine addicts. While many previous studies of substance abuse treatment were compromised by extraordinarily high dropout rates, this approach retained nearly 70% of group members for the entire length of treatment. This book describes MDGT and provides a practical guide to implementation. Based on an understanding of the psychological vulnerabilities of addicts, the MDGT model addresses the modifications in psychodynamic technique that are necessary for addicts' needs. It focuses on four main areas of difficulty involving self-regulation; affect, self-esteem, relationship, and self-care problems. Both supportive and expressive, the approach helps group members identify, process, and modify the characterological traits that mask addict's vulnerabilities. With this approach, a well-led group can heighten self-esteem, improve self-care, combat feelings of isolation and shame, and strengthen the individual's capacity for positive change. Concomitant involvement with an individual therapist/counselor is encouraged as a means to support and facilitate the group therapy, especially early in group treatment, and to maintain a flexible individual and group treatment context for self-exploration and understanding. Bringing the model to life are detailed vignettes and transcripts of groups in different phases of recovery. These cases demonstrate techniques, illustrate technical issues, and illuminate major themes that unfold during treatment.
