This brief, evidence-based guide is ideal for busy mental health professionals helping clients with opioid use disorders (OUDs). It examines the devastating global impact caused by opioids and is replete with information and resources that can be immediately applied to addiction work.

In addition, Drs. Alderson and Gladding provide a number of counseling approaches and treatment options that consider work with women, youth, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, veterans, older adults, people with disabilities, individuals in the criminal justice system, and rural residents. Five useful appendices conclude the book, including a listing of 20 opioid drugs in descending order of potency; common ICD-10, ICD-10-CM, and ICD-11 codes; and a glossary of terms and abbreviations.

Breaking the Cycle of Opioid Addiction Book Excerpt:

An evidence-based guide to using cannabis to enhance pain relief safely, effectively, and economically while reducing the risks of opioid addiction Opioid addiction has exploded to epidemic proportions in the U.S. Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death. In 2012, 259 million prescriptions were written for opioids—more than enough to give every American adult their own bottle of pills. Uwe Blesching, author of The Cannabis Health Index, clearly and thoroughly lays out the overwhelming benefits of using cannabis—not only to reduce the nation’s dependence on opioids—but also to manage the craving and withdrawal symptoms of opioid addiction, and especially to address the pain that leads to drug use and addiction in the first place. Citing statistics showing that states allowing legal access to cannabis have seen a 25 percent drop in opioid-related deaths, Blesching explains how precision applications of cannabis can alleviate the mental and emotional aspects of pain by modulating numerous neurotransmitters and their emotional counterparts. He presents a convincing case for the powerful benefits of cannabis in reducing the risks of addiction and overdose, cutting monetary costs, and restoring a sense of balance and control to those who struggle with pain.

For the first time reports on methadone and heroin maintenance treatment with respect to clinical practice, research, methodological aspects, neuroscience and psychotherapy are brought together in this volume. They arise from a conference held in November 2001 in Basel. The Swiss approach of a highly structured outpatient treatment using methadone, heroin, morphine etc. to keep patients in treatment is discussed. Data of follow-up after heroin-assisted treatment is shown. Also a critical discussion of the history of treatment modalities and its scientific evaluation is presented. Further important topics such as brain imaging, opioid withdrawal, risks of treatment, and basic neurochemical research are presented. The issue concludes with the narrative experience of a practicing psychotherapist. This topical and outstanding overview gives psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists, neuroscientists, physicians as well as decision makers in public health, politicians, counselors and social workers an excellent insight into stimulating and scientific research.

Dark Paradise Book Excerpt:

In a newly enlarged edition of this eye-opening book, David T. Courtwright offers an original interpretation of a puzzling chapter in American social and medical history: the dramatic change in the pattern of opiate addiction--from respectable upper-class matrons to lower-class urban males, often with a criminal record. Challenging the prevailing view that the shift resulted from harsh new laws, Courtwright shows that the crucial role was played by the medical rather than the legal profession. Dark Paradise tells the story not only from the standpoint of legal and medical sources, but also from the perspective of addicts themselves. With the addition of a new introduction and two new chapters on heroin addiction and treatment since 1940, Courtwright has updated this compelling work of social history for the present crisis of the Drug War.

"The author blames part of the US opioid crisis on policy that espouses abstinence-focused treatment for people addicted to opioids. The author tells the stories of people in recovery and argues that medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, needs to be available to anyone suffering from opioid abuse. The interrelated barriers to MAT-from physicians who won't prescribe it, to drug courts that mandate counseling (and counselors who deride it), to politicians who ban it-demonstrate ill-advised narrow-mindedness in the author's view"--
