Item Description...
The transtheoretical model has fundamentally changed how Western professionals think about and address addictive behavior. In this new and original work, Dr. DiClemente extends this influential model to describe the development as well as the resolution of problems with drugs, sex, eating, and money. He thereby offers a comprehensive and fruitful framework to stimulate new professional thought on addiction policy, prevention, research, and treatment."--William R. Miller, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of New Mexico "This book provides a refreshingly practical guide to help you navigate your way through competing theories, data, and dogma on how addiction can best be prevented and treated. Building on his previous work, Dr. DiClemente now helps us understand not only how people recover, but also how they develop addiction. His application of the transtheoretical model to complete the cycle of change is both intellectually satisfying and useful in planning and evaluating preventive interventions. Clinicians will be better able to explain to clients and families how addiction develops, and empower clients to change with dignity and compassion. Students using this book as a text in psychology courses or graduate studies in addiction will appreciate how the transtheoretical structure makes sense of the multiplicity of theories and approaches in the field. Researchers will enjoy the challenge to reexamine their models in light of Dr. DiClemente's synthesis of data. This book has deepened my understanding and appreciation of the transtheoretical model, and is sure to have a similar impact on others as well."--David Mee-Lee, MD, Co-Chair, Quality Improvement Council, American Society of Addiction Medicine "This volume combines cutting-edge research, theory, and practice to provide a panoramic perspective on the acquisition and cessation of addictions. Based on the transtheoretical model, the book offers an innovative, integrative

Addiction and Change: How Addictions Develop and Addicted People Recover (Guilford Substance Abuse Series)   Dec 21, 2007
This book is very well written and easy to understand. This step approach to addiction recovery is both powerful and sensible.
How people become addicted; how they recover.  Dec 4, 2006
This book, based upon the Prochaska and Norcross model of "stages of change" is a vital resource for the chemical dependency/abuse counselor, or anyone else who works with this population.

The authors clearly delineate how a person becomes addicted (using the stages of change model- except in reverse), then moving on to the process of recovery.

Contrary to an earlier review, I did not find this resource to be "verbose;" rather I thought the presentation was cogent and crisp.

Scholarly yet practical without pedantry this is an informative piece of literature in a field where one needs all of the resources one can get.

Highly recommended.
Addiction and Change: How addictions and addicted people recover  Nov 9, 2006
My review is that the book is somewhat verbose but has a message for clinitions who work with people who have a need to change their thought patterns and do not know how to accomplish this task.
