Overview

Treatment of Addiction is a lively exploration of the growing use of creative arts therapies as a treatment for drug and alcohol dependency.
Current treatment options for drug and alcohol addiction vary widely and have in the past been somewhat fragmented. In this book, contributors quote recent research and clinical case studies to argue that the arts therapies offer an appropriate, effective and coherent treatment approach.They explore in detail the practice of film, art, dance and drama therapies in both individual and group settings.
Treatment of Addiction is an unusual collection which challenges professionals working with drug and alcohol addiction to think about difficult treatment issues and how other professions approach them. For art therapists in practice, it will provide a lively account of a new application for their growing profession.
