Description:

Charles B. Towns. Habits That Handicap The Menace of Opium, Alcohol, and Tobacco, and the Remedy. NY: The Century Co., Aug. 1915, 1st. printing, xvi, 289 pp. *** This book is an important early work on holistic approaches to the treatment of addictions. Towns and his associates recognized the substance abuse was usually the result of societal ills coupled with the fact that some people were biologically and psychologically at risk of addiction. He developed, with the aid of Dr. Alexander Lambert, a medical regime called the Belladonna Cure, also known as the Towns-Lambert Cure, for various forms of addiction. The Charles B. Towns Hospital was established in NYC, and had among its many patients Bill Wilson, one of the founders of AA. Towns was also an important consultant involving state and national legislation to curb drug abuse. *** The Preface is by Richard C. Cabot, a Massachusetts physician who was also a social philanthropist. He believed that action was more important than words, and to this end he greatly improved out patient care by coupling medical therapies with social programs. *** This book comes with a clear mylar protective cover. *** Bound in brown cloth boards and spine, gilt lettering on spine. The covers are clean with light wear. The contents are clean and complete in a good binding. *** 7.75 inches tall by 5.5 inches. Bookseller Inventory #
