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 would be VERY helpful to people who have relapsed. It would also benefit people who have not relapsed to read this to avoid ever having to go down that road. This book would ALSO benefit a non-alcoholic/ non-addict, as it clearly represents addiction overall. There is also a section on co-addicts, which are people who are directly affected by an addict - such as a spouse are child.
i HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!!
