Addiction Treatment : A Strengths Perspective (Paperback) (Katherine Van Wormer & Diane Rae Davis)
About this item
ADDICTION TREATMENT covers the biological, psychological, and social aspects of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. The authors bridge the gap between the popular twelve-step and harm-reduction approaches, thus illuminating how you, as a future practitioner, can guide your clients down a trusted path that is tailored towards the client's particular needs. Through a number of first-person narratives about the experience of addiction, you will discover a realism and depth not commonly found in textbooks. Interesting and relevant topics -- such as the case against so-called underage drinking laws and an inside story of working in a casino -- draw you into the material and illustrate the importance of reducing harm within the biopsychological framework that ties the text together.
