individuals (and, as a master's student,
having comoderated a DUI therapy group), STAYING
SOBER is an invaluable resource for therapists and
Basically, Gorski & Miller outline a way in which
the addicted individual can learn to avoid relapsing
in the future - basically, by examining the "triggers"
(usually emotional & situational) which can
potentially lead to relapse. By examining these
triggers, and then creating a "relapse prevention
plan", the addicted individual can
usually find a way to avoid relapse.
However, my summary does not do the book justice.
I _strongly_ urge everyone who can to pick up this
book. It is one of the best books I have read
about the subject of relapse prevention
It is a lot of work, both for the counselor and for the client, but the payoff is long term sobriety.
This book gives the warning signs of relapse, the symptoms of it, and how to avoid it. With this knowledge, it should help a lot of addicts to be alert for the warning signs and prevent relapse all together. This book is a fascinating and neccessary look at the nature of alcoholism, addiction, and relapse.
