Musicians and Addiction: Research and Recovery Stories examines the enormous vulnerability musicians have towards addiction and dependency issues and offers suggestions and practical advice. The book commences with a literature review, surveying academic research focused on the pressures faced by musicians and other contributory factors. Excerpts from published autobiographies are woven into the discussion to illuminate the points being made. The book then presents a series of personal recovery stories from musicians which have been specially written for the project. The final section presents practical advice from a range of experts, targeted at both musicians and organisations that employ musicians. The book potentially has relevance to visual artists, novelists and other creative people.
