Truth about Addiction and Recovery: The Life-Process Program for Outgrowing Destructive Habits

by Stanton Peele, Archie Brodsky, Mary Arnold
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
From the authors of Love and Addiction ( LJ 4/1/75) comes another thought-provoking and insightful look at the nature of addiction. In contrast to popular thinking, Peele and Brodsky view addiction as a problem rather than a disease. In lieu of 12-step treatment programs, they advocate ``the life process program,'' which focuses on developing personal skills to moderate behavior as opposed to merely accepting addiction as an incurable disease. A minor criticism is that they build such a strong case against the disease theory that there is a tendency to forget they are not disputing the existence of addiction. However, Chapter Ten in Part 2 helps to reinforce the authors' acceptance of the reality and seriousness of addiction. Essential for all dependency and recovery collections. Highly recommended.-- Elizabeth DeMarco, Onondaga Cty. P.L., N.Y.
