  • addiction book Addiction - Book

    There is good reason to be optimistic about helping people with addictive disorders and their recovery. Touched by the effect of addiction in his family life, Jim Clegg-founder of The Institute for Addiction Study--asked Drs. Kevin McCauley and Cory Reich a series of pointed questions about addiction and the nature of addicts. This interview was recorded and is represented on the Addiction CD. There was a great reception of the CD containing the doctors explanation on what addiction is, what can be done about it, and why they advocate so strongly for the treatment of addicts as patients with a brain disease. Due to the overwhelming response to put in writing the topics covered in the interview, Drs. Kevin McCauley and Cory Reich have written this book on addiction. This book invites a new understanding of addiction, one that can provide individuals and families struggling with addiction real hope-and even peace.

    disease model of addiction part one The Disease Model of Addiction - Part One

    The most important question about addiction asks; Is addiction a "disease" or a "choice"? This lecture outlines both arguments and provides evidence for why, in Addiction Medicine, doctors believe that addiction is in fact a disease. The most recent neurophysiologic research about addiction is presented, including the stress-induced hedonic dysregulation theory. The connection between this research and the baffling behaviors observed in addicts - behaviors such as craving, denial and persistent drug use despite negative consequences - is outlined.

    disease model of addiction part one recovery The Disease Model of Addiction - Part One

    This lecture, written specially for people who are seeking or are already in recovery, explores the age-old debate about whether addiction is a “disease” or a “choice.” Kevin McCauley outlines the arguments both for and against the conceptualization of addiction as a disease, and then explores the most recent neurophysiologic research about addiction to see what light this research can shed on the symptoms addicts experience – symptoms such as loss of control, craving, and persistent drug use despite mounting negative consequences.

    disease model of addiction part two The Disease Model of Addiction - Part Two

    If addiction is a "disease," what does that mean? In this lecture we will go beyond the Disease Model argument to ask the most exciting questions about addiction: Why do addicts seem to be so emotionally attached to drugs? Where does spirituality fit in with this new neuroscientific understanding of addiction as a brain disease? What's to keep the addict from using "I have a disease" to avoid responsibility? Does punishment and coercion really work to change addictive behavior, and even if it does -- should we do it?

    The First Year of Recovery

    There is no need to be pessimistic about the chances for recovery from addiction. Certain groups of people in recovery have higher than 80% chance of getting through their first year of sobriety successfully. This lecture talks about these special groups of recovering addicts and details how all patients can have similar success rates. The concept of Post Acute Withdrawal is introduced, and the challenges of depression, anxiety and insomnia in early recovery are presented.

    applied recovery book Applied Recovery™

    Sixty years ago, two doctors found the secret to helping people with addiction: they decided to treat addiction as a disease, and addicts as patients. Because they rejected the commonly held beliefs about addicts held by most doctors of their time, their work is legendary in the history of addiction treatment.

    This book traces the source of the stereotypes about people who suffer from addiction that these two doctors fought against. It dares to imagine a world without these prejudices and the punitive treatment they suggest.It tells the story of a very special group of professionals who begin their sobriety in just such an environment, and how their success rates in the first year of recovery are phenomenal. This book lays out a method of affording this same kind of care to all people seeking recovery so everyone can enjoy a similar success rate.

    The fact is that there is no need to be pessimistic about anyone's chances for recovery. When addiction is treated as a disease, and addicts receive the same care and compassion as other patients, addiction becomes, relative to other chronic diseases, a surprisingly straight forward problem to manage. And the truth is: people get sober all the time!
