Item description for A Model for the Treatment of Substance Abuse - An Introduction by H Cook David...

Substance abuse is a complex disorder with associated biological, psychological, and social causes and effects. At the community level substance abuse has been treated as a social problem, while lack of will power has been the proclamation at the individual level. Accompanying these two generalizations is the fatalistic assessment that until society takes ownership of the solution, substance abuse will remain a social problem. Society has invested heavily in infrastructure designed to address the many issues and costs created and resulting from substance abuse, only to be frustrated by no return on investment. The primary reasons for this no return on investment have been. (1) Treatment as society's primary tool for dealing with substance abuse with a treatment plan used to guide the delivery of treatment services. (2) Outcomes measurement as society's primary tool for measuring the effectiveness of treatment where the abusers consumption of substances is queried at some point in time after the completion of treatment. In essence, society has opted for a process that attempts to educate the abuser to a behavior change, followed by a did-it-work query, without addressing that person's base addictive thinking, best characterized as bondage in self. This Model for a new approach to the treatment of substance abuse is built from the lack of will power generalization as a manifestation of a person's bondage in self. As such, this Model is not concerned with a person's behavior. Instead, it argues for, and outlines a methodology for the direct assessment of a person's cognitive reasoning and deduction via an incrementally constructed and measured treatment plan.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Model for the Treatment of Substance Abuse - An Introduction?

Innovative non-linear model for treatment  Jul 22, 2007
This book is written by someone who has spent many years in the field empirically observing the recovery of countless individuals from substance abuse and other self-imprisoning emotional disorders. In addition to actual (and personal) observation, the author adds his experience in computer science and in programming to provide a more than qualitative, intuitive, model for observing and tracking the recovery of substance abusers and chemical dependents through the rehabilitation system and out into the first steps of actual recovery. In doing so, the author provides clinical workers and professionals alike with a firm basis to build upon formal training through the application of a rigorous, and time-proven, methodology which has been repeatedly proven to assist substance abusers in building the foundations for productive and useful lives. I will admit, however, that I am biased in that the author also applied the techniques he describes in the book on me. When he met me, I was a chaotic loss. Now I am married. We have a son. I have regular employment. I couldn't have done it without this man, nor without the ideas in his book.
