New Book On Drug And Alcohol Addiction

A dynamic new book on chemical dependency written by a recovered heroin and crack cocaine addict for families affected by alcoholism and addiction was just been released.

Recovered heroin and crack cocaine addict Robert G. Reid released his new book Recover All: A Guide for Families in Understanding Addiction (Eugene, OR: Wipf and Stock, 2007) in Fall 2007. The author personally received treatment in nine programs and spent more than half his lifetime chemically dependent. After getting clean he worked as the Director of Admissions and Recover Education in a long-term drug and alcohol program and has authored this book to: 1) equip people with an understanding of the addictive process, 2) the warning signs of addiction, and 3) an extensive reference guide in how to find, evaluate, and get your loved one into a treatment program. This book is being called the guide to understanding addiction from therapists, educators, and even pastors.

While working hands-on with addicts and their families, Reid noticed a dire need to bridge the chasm of understanding between chemically dependent persons and their loved ones. The work opens by addressing what addiction is, how it develops, and the dynamics of the addictive personality. This book shares real-life experiences from both the personal and treatment-administration perspectives. Such rare, two-perspective insight communicates the experience, strength, and hope that any person with a chemically dependent loved one longs for.

Recover All not only shares information about addiction, but it also addresses fundamental issues and questions facing loved ones of those struggling with addiction. These issues include dealing with denial both in the addict and among the addict's family and friends, overcoming rationalization, identifying and preventing manipulation, dealing with selfishness, and saying "no" effectively. Reid concludes by outlining the phenomenon of relapse and by providing the ten most detrimental behaviors a family member or friend could exhibit in a loved one's recovery process.
