Psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and other professionals involved in the treatment of substance abuse and addictive behaviors will welcome this new book as a bold and innovative approach for intervention! Using research, examples, and balanced discussion, the author describes the traditional/popular view of addiction, expounded by groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, as a disease, progressive in nature, which can never be cured but can be arrested. This book describes, analyzes, and exposes the weaknesses of the addiction concept and provides a sound rationale for an exciting and promising alternative: the lifestyle model. Focusing on behavioral changes and personal responsibility instead of helplessness and dependence, this important, alternative avenue of therapy can mean the difference between enervation and empowerment for many individuals.
