Overview

This book adapts the CENAPS Model of Recovery and Relapse to the specific cultural needs of African Americans. There are a number of obstacles faced by African Americans that are not experienced by members of the majority culture who seek recovery.

Disproportionately large numbers of African Americans relapse. Why? What can be done?

Relapse is a serious problem for all recovering people, but it is especially severe for African Americans seeking recovery from addiction. Now, for the first time, Roland Williams, a certified Relapse Prevention specialist who is heavily involved in promoting recovery in the African-American community, has joined forces with Terence T. Gorski to initiate an in-depth look at relapse among recovering African Americans and what can be done to prevent it.

All recovering people have relapse warning signs. For many African Americans, however, these warning signs are woven into a broad fabric of cultural issues that create additional obstacles to staying alcohol and drug free.
