Self-Change from Alcohol and Drug Abuse: Often-Cited Classics
2007 (English)In: Promoting Self-Change from Addictive Behaviors: Practical Implications for Policy, Prevention, and Treatment, New York: Springer , 2007, 31-57 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Many are addicted. Few are treated. Yet many who are not treated recover. Promoting Self-Change from Addictive Behaviors examines natural recovery as a clinical phenomenon, a field of inquiry, and a vital component of therapy. It also brings clinicians and counselors to a new understanding of addiction and recovery. One of the few books on the topic, this updated edition offers alternatives to disease models of addiction by exploring personal pathways to recovery. Focusing on alcohol and drug problems, it provides a literature review of 40 years of studies on self-change with particular emphasis on the current decade and methodological issues (starting with how much or how little treatment constitutes "treatment").
