One of the unexpected advantages my drug addiction granted is that the process of recovery that I practise includes a mentorship tradition. I will encourage you to find mentors of your own and explain how you may better use the ones you already have. Furthermore, I will tell you about my experiences mentoring others and how invaluable that has been on my ongoing journey to self-acceptance and how it has helped me to transform from a bewildered and volatile vagabond to a mostly present and usually focussed husband and father. It explores how we all - consciously and unconsciously - choose guides, mentors and heroes throughout our lives and examines the new perspectives they can bring.
The problem: a global epidemic of bingeing. The solution: a brave new approach to female recovery. This is my story, and it's particular. But I am not alone. Drinking problems challenge a growing number of women. The new reality: binge drinking is increasing among young adults - and women are largely responsible for this trend.
Women's buying power has been growing for decades, and their decision-making authority has grown as well. The alcohol industry, well aware of this reality, is now battling for women's downtime - and their brand loyalty. Our relationship with alcohol is complex, and growing more so. This book will be essential reading for a huge number of women, a book that's breaks a major taboo. This will be a book for best friends to give one another, mothers to give daughters, sisters to give to each other - a book to read in hiding, when you know you're in trouble.
This book will offer companionship for women of every age. It will answer a myriad tough questions. A book for anyone who thinks they have a problem, or knows someone who may have a problem, and wants to know more. Which means: just about everyone. Yet alcohol consumption, even in relatively moderate amounts, can also have an adverse impact on health, personal relationships, sleep, work, family life, and more. In this book, clinical psychologist Stuart Linke encourages us to carefully reflect on our own drinking habits. Are we drinking more than we realized? Why do we drink? How can we take steps to control or perhaps stop drinking if we choose to?
Using questionnaires, worksheets and accessible examples of real situations, Thinking About Drinking provides clear, practical strategies for improving our relationship to alcohol. Linke shares his expertise and experience in cognitive behavioural therapy and motivational therapy [or simply "in psychology"] to help both heavy and moderate drinkers: Calculate alcohol intake Think about drinking habits and patterns Identify the risks posed by alcohol Understand the process of change Draw up a realistic plan of action Successfully implement the plan Skillfully handle relapses.
For people who would like to better control and alter their drinking but are not sure how to go about it, Thinking About Drinking is a simple and sensitive guidebook from an expert in the field, providing step by step instruction and advice to help promote a healthier and more balanced relationship to alcohol. Read the other side of Nic Sheff's bestselling memoir, Tweak. Praise for Beautiful Boy:- 'A brilliant, harrowing, heartbreaking, fascinating story, full of beautiful moments and hard-won wisdom.
This book will save a lot of lives and heal a lot of hearts'. Anne Lamott 'An important book Desperate for help, she made a public appeal to get one of 27 detox beds in Ireland so that she could reclaim her life from the drugs that had ravaged it. What followed was an extraordinary story of grit and determination as she embarked on her recovery journey. Her story became an instant bestseller and has resonated with readers ever since. This edition contains a new introduction from Rachael where she reflects on her story and considers what has changed for her and in the drugs culture in Ireland over the last decade.
But control was something I'd lost a long time ago. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to.
It took a violent relapse one summer to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. He paints an extraordinary picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. Tweak is a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery and complements his father's parallel memoir, Beautiful Boy. Lincoln gave The Hunger everything he had and still it wanted more. It wanted his life.
Hidden from the London tourists lies a demi-monde of decadence where a man can party to excess for as long as his wallet allows. Lincoln was in charge of sales and marketing for a famous men's club in Soho, connecting wealthy punters with hopeful girls. He worked his way through an endless supply of beautiful young women, breaking beds and smashing toilets along the way.
After he left the club he held private sex parties for city bankers. But even that was not enough to satisfy The Hunger. Lincoln wanted more coke and more women. And he devouredthem. When you're possessed by The Hunger, is there ever a way out? This raw, brutal and honest account of one man's addiction to excess is a tale of terrifying madness. A new crop of chemicals is radically changing the recreational-drug landscape.
Known as Novel Psychoactive Substances NPS , these chemicals include replacements for known drugs like cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana, and heroin. They are synthetic, made in a laboratory, and are much more potent than traditional drugs - and, all too often, they are tragically lethal. Fentanyl, Inc. Their formulas were then hijacked by rogue chemists, largely in China but increasingly in other places, too, who change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, a process that makes the drugs' effects impossible to predict.
Westhoff has infiltrated this shadowy world. In Fentanyl, Inc. He visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, providing startling and original reporting on how China's vast chemical industry operates. He chronicles the lives of addicts and dealers, families of victims, law enforcement officers, and underground drug-awareness organisers in the U.
Together, they provide the shocking full picture of a calamity we are only just beginning to understand. And yet from its depths, as Westhoff relates, are emerging new strategies that may provide essential long-term solutions to the drug crisis that has affected so many. Deitch, Robert.

Husak, Douglas. Legalize This! New York: Verso Books, c NIDA also sponsored a project to educate injection drug users about HIV risk reduction outside of drug abuse treatment clinics Brown, Their dissemination model included extensive training and technical assistance with a newsletter publicizing the positive outcomes, and annual meetings of program administrators and practitioners.
Another case study examined the difficulties of disseminating an alcohol withdrawal protocol and a pharmacotherapy technique Naranjo and Bremmer, A case study of an international project called Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth reviews and illustrates the principles involved in ''retailing research" to bridge the barriers across the cultures of researchers and practitioners Lomas, Technology transfer in drug abuse treatment appears to be a fruitful field for further work. In the environment described above, it is easy for society to ration drug treatment, or reject certain forms of treatment.
The usual argument advanced for funding drug abuse treatment is not that addiction is a treatable chronic disease, but that drug abuse treatment is cheaper than prison and cheaper than treating AIDS. Drug-dependence treatment is relatively cheap, although not readily available. Residential treatment programs provide intake evaluations, group and individual counseling, recreational therapies, urine monitoring, transportation to supervised work, regular reports to licensing and referring agencies, housing, and all meals at a daily cost less than the bill for sleeping overnight at a mid-price hotel and considerably less than the costs of staying in jail Kaskutas, As shown in Figure 2.
Prejudice against addicts can also lead to policies that prevent the use of improved treatment approaches. Research has shown that prolonged maintenance treatment with methadone and other opioid agonists like LAAM levo-alpha-acetylmethadol and buprenorphine reduces mortality and morbidity among drug abusers and reduces crime in the community see Appendix F.
However, methadone maintenance treatment is banned in many. Similarly, some clinicians still encourage patients to reject methadone maintenance in favor of the less-effective methadone detoxification treatments. Others provide methadone doses that are too low to be fully effective and encourage patients to end maintenance treatment prematurely. Some criminal-justice agencies referring probationers for treatment refuse permission for them to receive methadone maintenance.
The stereotype that drug abusers could change their behavior if they were sufficiently motivated is inconsistent with understanding the complex, multiple factors involved in addiction. When policymakers view drug abusers as untreatable or undeserving of public support, treatment programs, insurance coverage and training programs may be underfunded or abolished. So, consider the director of the treatment program described at the beginning of this chapter who learns of new research showing that naltrexone improves outcome in alcoholic patients and in heroin addicts on probation. His program is funded for interpersonal treatments by relatively inexpensive counseling staff.
He cannot buy the expensive new medication, nor hire a physician to prescribe it, nor a nurse or pharmacist to dispense it. The director of such a program may well view the research that determined the effectiveness of naltrexone as impractical. In one sense that director would be right, since society clearly rations health care in the field of drug dependence on a different basis than rationing occurs in other health care areas. Payment is available only for inexpensive treatments, while the research evidence for efficacy of other treatments is disregarded.
Such rationing leads to waiting lists as the agency must cut treatment slots and serve fewer people. Decreasing the length of treatment and increasing counselor caseloads also blocks the utilization of new treatments of proven efficacy. Considerable resources flow into drug abuse research but it often takes years before research findings change drug abuse treatment. In a review of outcome studies addiction treatment was shown to be about as successful as treatment of other chronic disorders such as hypertension, diabetes, and asthma.
Indeed, less than 50 percent of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes, and less than 30 percent of patients with hypertension or asthma, comply with their medication regimens, with consequently sizable rates of reoccurrence or worsening of condition. These rates are comparable to success rates for treatment of persons with addictive disorders, O'Brien and McLellan, Treatment is the most effective way to cut drug use and drug abuse treatment is clearly cost-effective from a societal perspective Caulkins et al.
Despite this evidence, less than 20 percent of those who need treatment are receiving it and there are many barriers to implementing better treatment and providing better access. With the knowledge explosion taking place in understanding the biology of the brain and the mechanisms of addiction, it is difficult for the best informed and best intentioned treatment provider, researcher, or state substance abuse director to keep abreast of the science. As new treatment questions and new research answers flow out of the new scientific understanding, new policy questions arise.
It is important to enhance the exchange of information and knowledge among the research, treatment, and policy areas in order to bring the benefits of treatment research to the drug treatment consumer and to society. In summary, there are many gaps in communication among treatment, research, and policy, the three key segments of the drug abuse treatment community. These gaps are caused or exacerbated by a set of critical barriers to better communication and coordination. Other barriers include lack of advocacy efforts, and lack of training opportunities and requirements in substance abuse treatment and research for all health-related professions.
In addition, many CBOs lack organizational resources to implement new treatment findings while they are struggling with the complexi-. The committee concluded that there are ways to overcome the barriers and narrow the gaps and the following chapter describes a variety of models to aid this effort. Abcott AA.

The market for information in health policy: Using the "Just-in-Time" strategy. In: Institute of Medicine. Today, most substance abuse treatment is administered by community-based organizations. If providers could readily incorporate the most recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of addiction and treatment, the treatment would be much more effective and efficient.
The gap between research findings and everyday treatment practice represents an enormous missed opportunity at this exciting time in this field. Informed by real-life experiences in addiction treatment including workshops and site visits, Bridging the Gap Between Practice and Research examines why research remains remote from treatment and makes specific recommendations to community providers, federal and state agencies, and other decisionmakers. The book outlines concrete strategies for building and disseminating knowledge about addiction; for linking research, policy development, and everyday treatment implementation; and for helping drug treatment consumers become more informed advocates.
In candid language, the committee discusses the policy barriers and the human attitudes--the stigma, suspicion, and skepticism--that often hinder progress in addiction treatment. The book identifies the obstacles to effective collaboration among the research, treatment, and policy sectors; evaluates models to address these barriers; and looks in detail at the issue from the perspective of the community-based provider and the researcher.
