Substance Abuse and the Family demonstrates what it means to view addiction through a systems lens by considering biology and genetics, family relationships, and larger systems. Throughout the text, Michael D. Reiter shows how to examine a person’s predilection to become addicted, his or her social environment around substance use, the functionality of his or her family, and various treatment options. Chapters are organized around two sections: Assessment and Treatment. The first section pays attention to how the family system organizes around substance use and abuse. Here family roles, culture, and other issues such as family violence and resilience are covered. Two chapters are also included on the neuroscience and genetics of addiction, with contributions from Jaime L. Tartar and Christina Gobin. There are also chapters on working with partial systems, using genograms, and working in a culturally-sensitive way (with contributions from Dalis Arismendi), with culture-specific consideration paid to African American, Hispanic and Latin American, Asian American, and Native American families. The second half of the book explores what a systems orientation means in practice and goes over self-help groups for individuals and families. An overview of the major family therapy theories is included, which examines intergenerational, experiential, communication approaches, strategic, systemic, and post-modern models. A separate chapter examines issues faced by both youth and adult children of alcoholics. Intended for undergraduate and graduate students, as well as beginning practitioners, this text is one of the most penetrating and in-depth examinations on the topic available. .

Help children overcome the increasing dangers they face because of their parents’ addictions Impact of Substance Abuse on Children and Families addresses the growing concern over children at risk of developing physical and mental health problems because of their parents’ addictions to alcohol and other drugs (AOD), including a chapter on the troubling increase of methamphetamine abuse by parents. The book’s contributors examine current research findings from the United States, Australia, Ireland, and Israel to provide much-needed insight into the effects of addiction on family dynamics, parental attachment styles, and family characteristics. The book also looks at the impact of addiction on school-aged children and on mothers in residential treatment with their children, survey assessment instruments and treatment outcomes, and the value of Student Assistance Services for older children. Almost 25 percent of children in the United States live in a household where a parent or other adult is a heavy or binge drinker. More than 10 percent live in family where illicit drugs are used. Children of alcoholics are nearly 10 times more likely to develop an alcohol use disorder as other children, and often develop behavior problems such as depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder. Children of illicit drug abusers are more likely than other children to demonstrate immature, impulsive, or irresponsible behavior, to have lower IQ scores, and poorer school attendance. Impact of Substance Abuse on Children and Families focuses on these critical and often ignored aspects of addiction, providing the latest evidence-based qualitative and quantitative research findings, as well as a summary of available literature. Impact of Substance Abuse on Children and Families examines: the impact on children at various developmental stages the role of the family as a treatment resource alcohol problems and marriage parental attachment styles of drug-using fathers family cohesion and adaptability self-in-relations theory family-centered service models the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) adolescent substance abuse treatment online treatment options Impact of Substance Abuse on Children and Families is an essential resource for both academics and practitioners working in social work, addictions counseling, sociology, psychology, public health, and family and children’s studies.

"Edith M. Freeman's Substance Abuse Treatment is long overdue and warmly welcomed. . . . The book offers a refreshing examination of both life cycle and multicultural aspects of substance abuse treatment, all cast within the family systems framework. . . . This book should go a long way in guiding social workers and other professionals who are increasingly dealing with substance abusing clients toward integrating family and family systems into their practice with this population." --Bradley Googins in Social Work in Health Care "Attention to diversity issues enriches the variety of family structures, functions, and forms that are considered. Each chapter also contains helpful case examples and specific recommendations for practitioners. A person-in-environment approach is consistently maintained, and a strengths perspective is endorsed--a helpful antidote to the usual addiction material that emphasizes individual deficits and sanctions in the medical model. . . . The book would be valuable as a text in a course on family interventions or as a supplementary text in courses on practice and addictions." --Rita Rhodes in Families in Society Edith M. Freeman's pioneering effort utilizes a family systems perspective as a framework for understanding, treating, and preventing substance abuse. Without minimizing the importance of the biological, social, or psychological theoretical explanations of substance abuse, Substance Abuse Treatment explores the myriad variables that are needed to provide a richer explanation of any phenomenon pertaining to substance abuse. Such topics as treating substance abuse across the life span, multicultural approaches, and co-dependency are discussed in detail. Each chapter includes a case study or vignette that highlights individual and family life cycle issues relevant to substance abuse treatment. Written by an outstanding blend of practitioners and educators, this thoughtful, challenging, scholarly but practical collection of articles is a major contribution to the substance abuse and family therapy fields. "Freeman has assembled an impressive array of contributors in a volume that contains theory, practice, and research in family systems approaches to substance abuse. . . . The book includes practical information, suing a person-in-environment focus that is applicable to research and practice. It is a valuable addition for all who work with substance abuse problems." --The American Journal of Family Therapy

At last, a book that defines a new language for treating substance abuse in an increasingly culturally diverse population. Until now, therapists, counselors, and teachers who treat addiction within the context of the whole family have had to make do with outdated one-size-fits-all theories and treatment programs. Bridges to Recovery is the first book to bring together experts from three major fields within psychotherapy -- family therapy, addiction counseling and multicultural treatment -- to provide a practical and flexible framework for working with families within their individual cultural contexts. Drawing upon case studies, clinical anecdotes and proven treatment methods, Bridges to Recovery provides practitioners with a unique insight into the individual cultural nuances that make addiction recovery a very personal journey. Jo-Ann Krestan, co-author of the classic book The Responsibility Trap: A Blueprint for Treating the Alcoholic Family, and her contributors integrate the latest ideas and research to offer a foundation for addiction treatment that brings to the forefront the cultural thinking that affects alcohol and drug use/abuse among Native Americans, Jewish Americans, African Americans, West Indians, Asian Americans, Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans and groups of European origin. This book will be an invaluable asset to teachers and students in clinical social work, psychology and substance abuse counseling programs, setting the standard for education and treatment at the beginning of the 21st century.
