Book Description

Millions of Americans suffer from addictions. Unfortunately, treatment for addiction has a high failure rate, in part because practitioners often overlook helping people learn how to cope with negative sexual experiences. Common sexual issues such as abuse, body image, incest, infertility, sexual dysfunction, and sexual orientation can make people more vulnerable to substance abuse and relapse.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. James provides addiction counselors with clinical wisdom on how to address an issue so laden with stigma and misconceptions. Do you need examples of how to work with this issue in your groups or in sessions with individuals? Dr. James provides you with step-by-step examples on how to carry out activities that can assist your clients in connecting their sexuality with their addictive behavior on their journey to long-term recovery. Most of all, Dr. James educates the reader with her decades of experience on pertinent topics regarding human sexuality and how it manifests itself in the cycle of addiction. If there is any book that you need to read to get started on this work, this is the one!

Format: Hardcover
This book fills a critical gap. Too often people in addiction and those recovering from addiction don't recognize the unique challenges related to sexuality and addiction. Too often sexologists and sex therapists don't fully understand addiction to drugs and alcohol. Dr. James' brilliant work is the bridge that is so badly needed by both fields. This book is research-based while also accessible for the practitioner - as well as the person in recovery. This work will enhance the lives of everyone who reads it.

As a leader in the implementation of sexual health in the drug and alcohol addiction field, I can't speak highly enough about this book. Critical for professionals doing this challenging, and often unsupported work. My only criticism is that it isn't required reading for licensure/certification in drug and alcohol counseling.
