A research consultant dealing with substance abuse, Steven Berg describes general, empirical, and theoretical studies, first-person accounts, and case studies.

His chapters are organized also to give information about various Jewish minority alcoholism and addiction, recovery programs and the role of the rabbi in them, alcoholism in Israel, and literary portrayals of Jewish alcoholics and addicts.
