Descrição do produto

The groundbreaking method that upends current treatment models and “offers collective hope to families of substance abusers” (Kirkus Reviews), helping loved ones conquer addiction and compulsion problems through positive reinforcement and kindness—from the leaders in progressive addiction treatment in the US.

Beyond Addiction goes beyond the theatrics of interventions and tough love to show family and friends how they can use kindness, positive reinforcement, and motivational and behavioral strategies to help someone change. Drawing on forty collective years of research and decades of clinical experience, the authors present the best practical advice science has to offer.

Delivered with warmth, optimism, and humor, Beyond Addiction defines a new, empowered role for friends and family and a paradigm shift for the field. This new approach is not only less daunting for both the substance abuser and his family, but is more effective as well. Learn how to use the transformative power of relationships for positive change, guided by exercises and examples. Practice what really works in therapy and in everyday life, and discover many different treatment options along with tips for navigating the system. And have hope: this guide is a life raft for parents, family, and friends—offering “reminders that although no one can make another person change, there is much that can be done to make change seem appealing and possible” (Publishers Weekly).

5.0 de 5 estrelas A Fascinating New Book on Addiction and Treatment 18 de fevereiro de 2014
Por Deanokat - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
As the father of an addict in recovery, I have read dozens of books on addiction, treatment, and self-help. Believe me when I say that this book is unlike any of the others I've read. Written by people at the Center for Motivation and Change (CMC), Beyond Addiction is a truly unique guide for families who are dealing with a loved one's substance use issue.

This book is not another "old school" book on addiction that tells families they have to force their loved one into rehab and totally detach from them. It's not another "tough love" book. Instead it teaches you how you can play an active, important role in affecting change in your loved one. Yes, you can actually *help* your loved one get better by using CRAFT (Community Reinforcement and Family Training): "a scientifically supported, evidence-based, clinically proven approach to helping families of substance abusers." According to the book, "CRAFT has three goals: 1.) to teach you skills to take care of yourself; 2.) to teach you skills you can use to help your loved one change; and 3.) to reduce substance use, period, whether your loved one gets formal treatment or not."

I won't lie to you. Some of the strategies in Beyond Addiction may come as a shock to you if you're used to reading and hearing about the old school approaches to addiction, which frequently tell us that we are helpless when it comes to assisting a loved one. The book's subtitle itself--"How Science and Kindness Help People Change"--should give you a clue that this book is very different. Using kindness to help a substance user change? Seriously?? Yes! And the authors explain the concept very thoroughly.

Beyond Addiction actually teaches family members and friends how to become empowered and make a huge difference in a substance user's life, using an actual plan. The book is broken down into four parts: What to Know; How to Cope; How to Help; and Live Your Life. You can choose to read the book in order or skip around, depending on what parts you think are most important to you at any given time. There are also interesting sidebars entitled "Good News" and "What's Hard About This." (I especially appreciated the "What's Hard About This" explanations, which are very clear, concise, and informative.)

This positive, science-based guide to helping a loved one was fascinating to me. It was incredibly refreshing to read an optimistic and compassionate approach to addiction treatment. (Note: CRAFT can also be used to motivate and reinforce change in other behaviors, too.) I wish this book was around a few years ago when my wife and I were first dealing with our son's addiction. It would've been fabulous to have been able to try the plan detailed in Beyond Addiction. I'm sure a lot of the verbal battles we had with our son back then could have been avoided.

If you have a loved one who is struggling with addiction or other compulsive behaviors, I highly recommend picking this book up. As it says on the inside flap, "This guide is designed not only to help someone change, but to help someone *want* to change." It's also full of hope, and that's a wonderful thing.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Great book with a sane prescription on how to be supportive and keep your own peace of mind 18 de maio de 2016
Por swish - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I read a lot of books when I started dating someone alcoholic to determine how I wanted to approach things. This book, and the harm reduction book Under the Influence, were the best guides of all. They gave me ideas for how to handle everything that happens in a proactive way to ensure my partner's safety and that treatment ideas are on his radar, while also keeping my own spirits up and not annoying my partner too much.

Something I would caution though, if you read this awesome book, is that other people might not understand the CRAFT model. Our culture is so steeped in AA/Alanon that most people you talk with about what you are going through as a partner will answer with an AA/Alanon framework. The SMART Friends and Family group seems to work with more of a CRAFT framework.

Honestly the hardest thing for me about being a partner of someone alcoholic has been living under the watchful eye of our AA/Alanon culture where I feel like people are ready to come down on me if I lift a finger to help my partner or try to do anything. Alanon isn't even research-based and this is, and this approach is shown to work better.

I think in the future I will keep it more to myself that I'm doing this approach with anyone who hasn't read the book. AA/twelve step/Alanon has a very strong grip on our culture and both patients and loved ones can come under criticism for taking other (often more effective and science-backed) approaches.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Great book. I wish I'd had it a couple ... 12 de julho de 2014
Por E. Harkins - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
Great book. I wish I'd had it a couple of years ago, but it hadn't been written yet. There is other literature with a similar approach, but the way these people wrote really spoke to me. Sometimes I felt like they were reading my mind. It was down-to-earth, logical, compassionate and optimistic. I highly recommend this to anyone who has a loved one with a substance abuse problem and is struggling with frustration, anxiety and a feeling of powerlessness.

When you're looking for help for your loved one and yourself, you can run into some very one-size-fits-all, black and white approaches. This book is about options, perspective and getting your own life under control so you can be a better help to others. It never puts the pressure or blame for someone else's problem on the family members or significant others, but it does have some very realistic and helpful advice for what a family member can do to optimize conditions for change. They don't prescribe one rigid path, which if it isn't followed means doom and despair. It's really more about developing a healthy understanding and attitude toward change, and the various ways change happens for different people.

I love many books, but most I do not consider to be life-changing. I think it's rare for a book to have that much power, at least in a lasting way. I think this book is different and that the things I learned from it are lessons that will stay with me, that I'll use (and already have used) in multiple life situations and that can be built upon.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Amazing from the start 28 de dezembro de 2016
Por Tanager - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Full disclosure I'm only a 3rd of the way through the book. But every single page has given me so much more understanding of my loved one's addiction that I already love it. Suddenly the reason conversation descended into fights made sense, and the exercises have helped me to have more realistic goals. I've gone to Al Alon meetings and enjoy the emotional validation I can receive with kind and loving people. But I don't like waiting for "rock bottom" and I REALLY appreciate a secular, science-based approach. It just makes perfect sense to me. The content is heavy and I'm reading it slowly to appreciate each concept as it's presented. It's well-written and approachable. I'm so thankful to the authors.

5.0 de 5 estrelas A true must-read 4 de maio de 2014
Por Mona Lisa - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
As a person who recovered from addiction a long time ago--and who has watched others recover (or not) over the years, I must say that this is the best--the VERY BEST--book on the subject of how to help an addicted loved one.

First, the writing is wonderful. Clear, gentle, and compassionate throughout. It was genuinely a pleasure to read.

Second, everything written is carefully explained, including the research base.

Third, it approaches the addicted person and his or her family with RESPECT, something that is often sorely missing from the conversation about addiction and the available treatments for the condition.

A much-needed addition to the literature. It should be read by everyone with an interest in the topic.
