An understanding of addiction theory is vital to understanding addiction itself. Theory of Addiction takes theory development from a simple ‘rational addiction model’, adding elements such as compulsion, self-control and habit, to explain the ‘big observations’ in the field. As well as explaining and evaluating the arguments of each of the prevailing schools of thought, the book develops a new, synthetic theory of addiction that brings together the diverse elements of current models. Designed to enable students, practitioners and researchers to establish a starting point in the labyrin

However, all stories don’t have tragic endings. Many people have been able to reach their lowest point and, by God’s grace, were able to start over and live totally delivered lives.Yet there is another side to the story. What about the family members who have never experienced drugs and can’t understand the strong hold that is tearing their loved on

One of the most original works on substance abuse treatment in the last decade, pathways explores the pilgrimage between two social worlds-one that promotes exeessive use of psychoactive drugs and the other that promotes radical abstinence from these substances-and how individuals can move from one culture to the other. This anthropological study of addiction and recovery as a cultural phenomenon serves as a manual for both substance abuse program design and clinical techniques in substance abuse assessment and treatment.

With one-third of our calories coming from sugar, white flour, and processed foods sugar addiction is a rapidly growing epidemic. However, unlike other addictions going “cold turkey” won’t fix it nor will a “one size fits all” approach. In this groundbreaking book, nationally recognized physician Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum uncovers four distinct sugar addiction types and gives a step-by-step plan for resolving their underlying causes and bre
