Book Description

"Braun-Harvey's manual deserves to become widely adopted at treatment centers across the United States and beyond. His approach offers an effective method for mitigating the shame that binds people to their addictions. In doing so, it may help pave the way to protracted recovery."--Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery

"The curriculum...provides a vision for chemical dependency treatment I have attempted to address for many years. This looks like an approach that finally meets this need."

--Eli Coleman, PhD
Director of the Program in Human Sexuality
University of Minnesota

"In this new evidence-based curriculum...Doug Braun-Harvey challenges our attitudes and beliefs, as well as our traditional ways of providing treatment....This material on sexual health can help to provide a missing piece for many recovering addicts."

--Stephanie S. Covington, PhD, LCSW
Author, Women and Addiction: A Gender-Responsive Approach

For men and women in addiction recovery, sexual behavior linked with drug or alcohol use is too often the primary reason for relapse. When sexuality is not directly and positively addressed in drug and alcohol treatment, it can result in treatment failure or relapse.

This group facilitator's guide introduces a pioneering, evidence-based curriculum, designed to integrate concepts of sexual health, current sex research, and recent developments in relapse prevention research. With this guide, group facilitators can offer clients a positive and safe forum within which to understand and change their sex/drug- linked behaviors.

Key Features:

  • Requires no specialized training, and can be integrated into a wide variety of treatment programs with all types of clientele
  • Contains lesson plans on dating and relationships, spirituality and sexuality, non-consensual sex, out-of-control sexual behavior, and more
  • Complete with suggested group activities, guided discussions, questions, role- plays, and more
  • Has been proven to improve client retention and decrease sexual behavioral problems

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! February 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I attended one of Doug's fascinating workshops and waited for his book to be published in 2009. The book is amazing as well, with excellent lesson guidelines, which may be used in a group setting or as a teaching tool alone. Doug covers several aspects of sexual health + addiction, and makes even the lay person capable of understanding the two issues as a whole entity, and their impact on a person's journey of recovery. It's a "must-have" for my practice.

5.0 out of 5 stars If not now when? February 21, 2011
By David
Format:Paperback
This manual can help treatment providers begin and sustain an awareness of and education of sexual health in drug and alcohol treatment settings. This is a topic whose time has come and we can no longer continue to not address sexual health in treatment settings (mind-body-spirit is not void of sexual expression, yet people are still taught shame around sexual expression in early recovery...right?) This is a well thoughtout step-by-step process for integrating sexual health discussions in our systems of care. Thank you Mr. Braun-Harvey, I hope every agency across the country will take on this relapse intervention program!

5.0 out of 5 stars A major breakthrough in addiction treatment October 9, 2010
Format:Paperback
It may sound trite, but I'll say it.

Anyone responsible for delivering addiction treatment should read Doug's book. It is a major contribution to the addiction/recovery treatment literature. As a result of his redirecting our apporach to treatment we have been more successful with more clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well thought out group curriculum. December 27, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I went to a seminar given by Doug, and it was fantastic. This book is a fully laid out 12 week group curriculum that can be adapted to many different settings. It is a well developed curriculum that helps staff and clients get beyond the uncomfortable nature of the topic to true therapeutic dialogue.
