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).

She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind. Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five. He’s still living—and dying—in it. Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters. Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.

If you are a person who has struggled with an addiction, or a family member who is helplessly watching the slow death of a loved one from an addiction, or even a seasoned professional who is overwhelmed and frustrated over the chronic relapses of clients, here is a simple question to ask yourself if you are wondering whether this book is for you. Does a person have control over a relapse? If you answered yes, then this book is absolutely for you. This book is for you because the answer to this question is an emphatic NO!!! Why is the answer no? Addiction, like any other disease, follows a natural process. Once it starts, this process will continue its natural course that will eventually lead a person to a more deteriorated condition, certain pain and suffering, or, even worse, death. There are no exceptions to this natural process, unless, of course, this process is interrupted. The more important question that needs to be asked is: Does a person have control over their recovery? The answer to this question is an emphatic YES!!! The intent of this book is not so much to focus on the science of addiction, although this will be addressed, as much as it is on the science of recovery. Although the reader will better understand some of the basic neurobiological processes underlying addiction (It is just not genetics alone), the reader will also explore how these same neurobiological processes are essential to recovery. The contention, here, is that if there is a science of addiction, there must be a science of recovery. This book will explore the many facets of healing within the recovery process with particular emphasis on examining the role of our neurobiology and behavior. More importantly, it will give readers, whether a person suffering from an addiction, a distraught loved one, or a frustrated professional, insight and a blueprint as to what needs to be done for a successful recovery regardless of the disorder. Is relapse a part of recovery? Absolutely Not!!!

Beyond Addiction is an easily understood handbook providing both spiritual and practical guidelines to help anyone who wants to overcome addiction.We are all aware that the addiction problem in this country is growing exponentially. Unfortunately there are very few options offered to help the addict, their parents, spouses or pastors when confronted with those who are struggling. Nearly all recovery programs are either unaffordable or often not even available. Regrettably most books are written about addiction and not for the addict. Beyond Addiction was written to give parents, spouses and pastors a practical and inspirational tool to help the addict overcome the bondage of addiction. It is written specifically for the addict with simple but deeply spiritual insight as well as sound practical application. It is designed to show that change is possible through personal testimonies from former addicts and down to earth language that addicts understand. With simple and relevant illustrations Beyond Addiction shows what true spiritual life looks like and how it can be attained. It also guides the addict through the practical steps needed for success.The book covers everything from how to get involved in a small group to how to make a plan, fighting euphoric recall, emotions, where to live, work etc. It is a simple yet thorough guide designed to take the addict from bondage and confusion into spiritual renewal and structured sobriety. The concise straightforward chapters are formatted to keep the addicts attention and be easily understood.

The word ‘addiction’ these days is used to refer toa chronic condition where there is an unhealthily powerful motivation to engage in a particularbehaviour. This can be driven by many different factors – physiological, psychological,environmental and social. If we say that it is all about X, we miss V, W, Y and Z. So, some people thinkaddicts are using drugs to escape from unhappy lives, feelings of anxiety and so on; many are. Somepeople think drugs become addictive because they alter the brain chemistry to create powerfulurges; that is often true. Others think that drug taking is about seeking after pleasure;often it is. Some take the view that addiction is a choice – addicts weigh up the pros and cons ofdoing what they do and decide the former outweigh the latter. Yet others believe that addictssuffer from poor impulse control; that is often true… And so it goes on. When you look at the evidence, you see that all these positionscapture important aspects of the problem – but they are not complete explanations.Neuroscience can help us delve more deeply into some of these explanations, while the behavioural andsocial sciences are better at exploring others. We need a model that puts all this together in away that can help us decide what to do in different cases. Should we prescribe a drug, give theperson some ‘tender loving care’, put them in prison or what? Theory of Addictionprovides this synthesis. The first edition was well received: ‘Throughout the book the reader is exposed to a vastnumber of useful observations...The theoretical aims are timely, refreshing, ambitious and above allchallenging. It opens up a new way of looking at addiction and has the potential to move the fieldof addiction a considerable leap forward. Thus we wholeheartedly would like to recommend thebook for students as well as scholars. Read and learn!’ Nordic Studies on Alcoholand Drugs ‘The book provides a comprehensive review of existingtheories - over 30 in all - and this synthesis of theories constitutes an important contribution in andof itself... West is to be commended for his synthesis of addiction theories that spanneurobiology, psychology and social science and for his insights into what remainsunexplained.’ Addiction This new edition of Theory of Addiction builds on the first,including additional theories in the field, a more developed specification of PRIME theory andanalysis of the expanding evidence base. With this important new information, Theory of Addiction willcontinue to be essential reading for all those working in addiction, from student to experiencedpractitioner – as urged above, Read and learn!
