Authority and Addiction

£12.99

Product description

Liltte, Brown and Company, Boston. 1969. 1st edition. Brill, Leon, and Lieberman, Louis. DJ Condition: very good. Condition: very good. Signs of wear and very slight rips and creases on all edges of DJ. Foxing and browning on edges of pages. No inscriptions. Spine and pages still in good condition.

"This book demonstrates how sociological theories may mesh with those of clinical psychology in treatment of behavior disorders. Authority and Addiction is of concern to all professionals represented in the program: psychologists, social workers, sociologists, public health nurses, psychiatrists, probation and law enforcement officers, public health officials, and family and other social service agencies. This is also an excellent text for courses in social problems, social deviance, psychopathology, criminology, rehabilitation, probation and parole, and research and evaluation techniques." - inside DJ Cover

"Authority and Addiction offers an account of the development, execution, and evaluation of a community-based rehabilitation program for narcotic addicts. The study is innovative in its effort to examine and assess the effectiveness of a treatment program using authority and structured settings in addition to aggressive casework techniques.

While working to maintain contact between the addict and the treatment milieu, the program aims at altering the addict's drug-use pattern and changing his attitudes and behavior. Treatment is carried out by joint-management teams composed of either a social worker or a public health nurse working closely with a probation officer.

Discussion focuses not only on the logic and rationale of this particular program but also on strengths and weaknesses of current methods of treatment. An extensive overview of the nature of the addict, the etiology of addiction, and the complex problems of differential diagnosis adds to an understanding of the treatment program." - inside DJ Cover
