Here is a wealth of information on helping black alcoholics and their families. Authorities discuss the policies, programs, and personnel that are needed to sensitively and effectively meet the treatment needs of black alcoholics. In a clear and concise look at the devastating disease of alcoholism, they focus on the physical, psychological, social, economic, and spiritual dimensions of the effects of the disease on blacks. Each chapter responds to these concerns and provides treatment models, recommendations, and information about treating black alcoholics. This is an informative and highly practical book for professionals in alcohol-specific agencies, mental health centers, family services, and child care agencies, as well as for administrators of treatment programs, students, and those who allocate funds for services.
