Overview


First published in 1990, Chemical Dependency and the African American is revised and expanded to reflect updated statistics and the latest information in the treatment field. An expert on the topic of how cultural differences affect addiction treatment, Peter Bell makes the decisive case that there is room in the disease theory of addiction to accommodate racial issues-not as causal factors, but as contributive. Intrinsic to the holistic approach to addiction treatment, which addresses the individual's physical, mental, emotional and physical health, are issues of race, culture, and class, says Bell. Unfortunately, these issues are largely ignored in the counselor-client setting. This leading text provides counselors with the framework for critical dialogue. Features: 1. A thorough discussion of the African American perspective toward addiction treatment 2. Explores the dynamics of race, culture, and class in treatment and recovery 3. Addresses specific racial identity/recovery issues 4. A leading, valuable resource for counselors and therapists Peter Bell, is a nationally recognized author and trainer in the field of chemical dependency. He co-founded the Institute on Black Chemical Abuse and served as the organization's executive director for 15 years. Bell has worked as a consultant for treatment centers, schools, and government agencies, and has provided public-policy leadership on addiction issues. He lives in Minneapolis.

Meet the Author

Peter is nationally recognized for his work in the area of chemical dependence in the African-American community. He was the cofounder and, for fifteen years, executive director of the Institute on Black Chemical Abuse. He was appointed to serve on a commission to the White House Conference on a Drug-Free America, and to a congressionally-created national commission on drug free schools. He has traveled extensively both in the United States and abroad providing seminars on alcohol and drug abuse. He has written numerous books on chemical dependence, and for his pioneering effort was named ABC Evening News Person of the Week in 1989. In addition to his work in chemical dependence, Peter served for five years as executive vice president of corporate community relations of TCF Financial Corporation, a 10 billion-dollar holding company with 183 offices in five states, headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He supervised all bank audit, compliance, foundation, and lobbying activities. Under his leadership, TCF Bank Minnesota was awarded an "outstanding" rating for their community reinvestment activities by federal regulators. Peter has served on the board of directors for numerous local and national social and civic organizations including Citizens League, Center of the American Experiment, CommonBond, and was a founding member and chair of the Center for New Black Leadership, based in Washington, DC. Most recently, Peter served on the transition team for Minnesota Governor, Jesse Ventura.
