About this title:
Synopsis:
ADDICTION TREATMENT covers the biological, psychological, and social aspects of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. First-person narratives about the experience of addiction provide you a realism and depth of study not commonly found in textbooks. In addition, you will study topics that interest you, such as the case against so-called underage drinking laws, to show you the importance of reducing the harm of any addictive behavior.

From the Author:
The research included on the brain in this volume is really awesome. The findings prove a lot of what I had learned from my affiliation with 12 Step groups, for example, the need for addicts to stay away from triggers ("slippery places") and questions some of the dogma in the field as well.

Katherine van Wormer
