Overview

This comprehensive resource about the behaviors and the dangers of addiction offers heartfelt and effective solutions that come from real-life experiences. With agonizing detail, these personal, compelling stories describe the horrors of the three major addictions that are plaguing college campuses: gambling, drinking and drugs, and eating disorders. Maintaining that addiction is a chronic but treatable illness and not a moral or character weakness, this guide explains how to recognize the signs of addictive behavior, analyzes the disease model of addiction vs. the power of choice, and demonstrates how to reach out and get help. Seeking to empower college students, whose uncertain self-image can be the foundation for addiction, this book is a necessary addition to any college’s drug- and alcohol-prevention program.
