From the Author:

Since its publication in 1990, this labor of love which reflects many years of research and writing has helped large numbers of people to gain a better understanding of the addictions and the addiction recovery process.

Oversimplified approaches to addiction miss the mark. Addiction is complex, not simple, and it is confusing, not easy to figure out. For those who are touched by addiction, it is cunning, baffling, and powerful. It can be called a biopsychosocial disease process with spiritual implications. Or it can be called "multifactorial." In any case, to explore addiction and all its ramifications is a serious challenge because it is our world's number one public health problem and needs to be addressed more thoughtfully.

Information provided in this book was gleaned during many years as a communications consultant to councils on alcoholism, addiction treatment centers, and other health facilities. My continuing education was enhanced during 8 years of service as a national correspondent for The U.S. Journal of Drug and Alcohol Dependence. Also, the years I spent as a weekly columnist ("On Addiction") for the Cape Cod Times provided me with an ongoing higher education in the many factors to be considered when making an effort to understand and cope with addiction.
