Working with clients who abuse drugs or alcohol poses formidable challenges to the clinician. Addicted persons are often confronting multiple, complex problems, from the denial of the addiction itself, to legacies of early trauma or abuse, to histories of broken relationships with parents, spouses, and children. Making matters more confusing, the treatment field is too often splintered into different approaches, each with its own competing claims. This eloquently written book proposes a narrative approach that builds a much-needed bridge between family therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and addictions counseling. Demonstrated are innovative, flexible ways to help clients form new understandings of what has happened in their lives, explore their relationships to drugs and alcohol, and develop new stories to guide and nourish their recovery.

Giving up

Substance abuse such as drugs and alcohol can damage not only the addicted person, but also the people who come in contact with him or her, especially the loved ones. What are the ways to overcome the internal struggle between quitting and giving your life a chance? The narrative means described by Jonathan Diamond can provide practical support. Combined with will power, the methods presented in the book prove to be a useful tool in therapy. Understanding the cause of addiction is the first step towards healing. Memories traced back to childhood such as abuse or destructive relationships are only part of the explanation that will bring light upon the mental block that is holding you back.
