Overview

Twelve-step programs are revolutionizing and reshaping our thinking about — and treatment of — addiction. Because these programs are based in the community instead of in an institutional or academic setting, they often employ techniques and language that can be confusing and alien to health care professionals. Written in a clear, easy-to-understand style, this book explores these programs and provides a guide on how to integrate them into ongoing human services.

Written by internationally renowned experts, A Bridge to Recovery: An Introduction to 12-Step Programs includes up-to-date information to bridge the gap between mutual aid programs, human services, and the professional community. This practical book is designed to assist with the implementation of these programs into routine practice while providing a useful reference for academic and educational professionals.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marcella McGuire, MS, RN, CSADC (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book summarizes two days of discussions with a group of well-known alcohol experts from a variety of fields.
Purpose: The purpose is threefold: (1) to describe the philosophy inherent in the 12-step programs; (2) to offer advice on the best ways professionals can introduce intervention to their patients; and (3) to propose ideas for research that could test efficacy or identify subgroup utilization rates, etc.
Audience: The authors target a variety of mental health professionals.
Features: The references are adequate but are a duplication; references are common and cited frequently and very available in other existing material. The book's appearance is acceptable.
Assessment: A prestigious group spent two days together on this, and the outcome is a book that is three-quarters chatty and informational, which could have been accomplished by a paraprofessional, and one-quarter suggestions for a research agenda. Much of the content is already available in other sources. I was looking forward to their collected wisdom in the research idea section, but I was sadly disappointed.
