Editorial Reviews


"Peer counseling is an effective approach in dealing with the critical problem of addiction and pregnancy. Barry Sherman's book presents a state-of-the-art program that can empower pregnant mothers in the process of recovery from addictive behavior problems. I highly recommend reading this book."-G. Alan Marlatt, Ph.D. Professor and Director, Addictive Behaviors Research Center University of Washington

"A comprehensive overview of substance abuse during pregnancy, a fascinating account of acupuncture as a detoxification technique, the development of new assessment measures, and a novel theory of why peer counseling works, are just some of the bonuses readers will find. Sherman and his co-workers have made a major contribution to the treatment of addiction."-William J. Reid, Professor School of Social Welfare, SUNY-Albany

"This is an interesting, well-documented, and well-written account of an innovative program designed to deal with a serious and often intractable social and psychological problem. The authors are to be commended for the program's innovations and for the careful, data-based evaluation that is presented in the book....I was particularly impressed with the chapter on self-efficacy and the measure for abstinence self-efficacy that the authors developed specifically for the group of women involved in the intervention program."-James E. Maddux, Ph.D. Professor and Associate Chair for Graduate Studies Department of Psychology, George Mason University
