Synopsis

Addiction Treatment A Strengths Perspective by Katherine S. Van Wormer

This book presents the strengths perspective as the unifying framework of the text to bridge the gap between 12-step approaches and harm reduction in addictions treatment. This perspective is applied to the treatment of alcoholism, eating disorders, compulsive gambling, and other addictions. The biopsychosocial framework is the organizing framework for this text. Divided into four parts, ADDICTION TREATMENT is comprised of three core sections that cover the biology, psychology, and social aspects of addiction respectively.

Reviews

This is an excellent piece of work. The book puts it all together, and delivers on its promise...The book's bio-psycho-social theoretical base is sound, and examines addictions on all three levels--physical, psychological, and social--and the harm reduction orientation (which is the book's unique accent) addresses the essential core of addiction treatment: the spiritual quest that no harm comes to another.
