About the Author

Jean Kinney, Lecturer in Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School, was the Associate Director of the Alcohol Counselor Training Program at Dartmouth conducted between 1972 and 1978. That program was the impetus for this text. Upon completion of the Alcohol Counselor Training Program, she became involved with Project Cork, a program established to develop and implement a model curriculum for medical student education and to create materials for health care professionals. She continues to be involved in professional development initiatives in the substance abuse field. In 1999, she was the first recipients of the Harold Hughes Award given annually by the National Institute of Medicine's National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. It is given in recognition for efforts to assist in the translation of scientific research into clinical practice. Loosening the Grip was one of her efforts cited in this award.

I had to buy this book for class and was not excited about this book. This book was way over my head in terms of the topic and how they described the background of certain drugs. I went to SAMHSA website which you could get books for free and literally for free once you logged in as a member. However on the margins there were quotes or facts about what drugs or alcohol does to someone--that was kinda cool.

This is a handbook. This book is very detail and encompasses a lot of material. This book can also overwhelm reader with prevalent information. My teacher used this book for the class and it was very difficult to understand and focus on important parts for the class. This book is more reference then textbook and not for the light reading…
