Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hats off to Joe Nowinski! The overall approach . . . is consistent with Hazelden's treatment philosophy. Specifically, the reliance on the Big Book and other AA literature, the emphasis on involvement in the fellowship of AA, and the therapist's role in constructively confronting and working collaboratively with the client are all consistent with Hazelden's approach. Overall, the methods used are ones that we are comfortable with, and use as well." —Patricia Owen, Daniel Anderson, and Fred Holmquist, Hazelden Foundation

From the Inside Flap

The Twelve-Step Facilitation Handbook provides clinicians with the information, advice, and tools they need to encourage chemically depAndent clients to take advantage of the healing power of twelve-step programs, the proven most-effective treatment for addictive behavior of all kinds. Filled with illustrative examples, the book maps out effective techniques that help clients develop a sense of acceptance and incorporate the twelve-step philosophy into action. In addition, the authors show clinicians how to integrate these time-tested principles into their work and help their clients with issues of denial, enabling, surrAnder, and codepAndency.This updated paperback edition also includes information on the clinical effectiveness of twelve-step facilitation and its success with Project MATCH and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism?a nationwide collaborative study of treatment for alcoholism and alcohol abuse.

Format: Paperback
This book pretty much describes how to counsel to the Minnesota Model of Addiction treatment as used by Hazelden, Betty Ford, and a large number of both hospital and community based chemical dependency treatment centers throughout the United States and other countries. I think the "Twelve Step Facilitation" model had to be described because SAMHSAs NREPP does not recognize programs/therapies that have been successful for years in treating addiction such as Minnesota Model, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Reality/Choice Therapy (Glasser), etc. as "evidence based". And a lot of governmental funders are now requireing evidence based therapies/programs. I was treated thirty years ago using a combined Minnesota (Twelve Step Facilitation) Model and REBT. I have been totally abstinent from all mind altering chemicals and in recovery ever since through the twelve step fellowship I was introduced to through this type of treatment.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A helpful resource for addiction counselors working with the 12 Step Treatment Model. I purchased this as a used book and feel I was overcharged for what was sent: a library copy taken from circulation. I'd guess the vendor probably paid little for the copy, yet charged $50. A rip off in my opinion. Buyer beware.
