About this title


This book presents a contemporary breakthrough view of substance addiction and recovery and outlines the components of a comprehensive, scientific, state-of-the art approach for the treatment of chemical dependency and addiction. It discusses psychosocial, psychobiological, and other aspects of addiction. The authors explore the dynamics of the development of Alcoholics Anonymous and the limitations of its 12-step fellowship approach to recovery. Topics include: drugs as self-medication, the reward pathwways of the brain, the psychology and physiology of craving, the psychodynamics of addiction and recovery, cultural attitudes towards drugs and alcohol, the need for legal and criminal justice reform, and the role of defense mechanisms in addiction and recovery.
