Addiction Recovery Tools
A Practical Handbook



February 2002 | 424 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book gathers addiction recovery tools (both Eastern and Western) into one single volume and provides practitioners with an easy to read, `how-to' book on when and how to use the different recovery tools available. For each given tool, the chapter will address the following questions:

· How does it work?

· Why does it work and with whom?

· What are the practical guidelines for success?

· What are the potential pitfalls?

Each chapter contains a brief history of each tool as well as a number of practical aids, including worksheets, lists, scales, guidelines, and interactive exercises to help the practitioner incorporate the tool into practice. The book also contains a number of instructional resources for the practitioner (for training, continuing education, and career enhancement).

Features/Benefits:

· A knowledgeable and experienced addiction specialist describes each recovery tool.

· Clinicians will learn which recovery tools will work best with each of their patients, and how to incorporate these tools into their practice.

· Discusses a wide variety of non-traditional approaches, such as acupuncture and spirituality enhancement.
