Description : Understand and learn how to effectively address the burgeoning social problem of homelessness, particularly among alcoholics and drug addicts. Although one study cannot provide a definitive statement on the best services for the homeless, the variety of services and evaluation approaches described in this insightful book begin the process of identifying effective recovery approaches for homeless men and women with alcohol and drug problems. Professionals involved in the development and implementation of nine community demonstration grants in Alaska, California, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania reflect upon the unique needs and opportunities in their communities and explain the features of their programs in regards to clients, project services, project implementation, and evaluation. In Treating Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Among Homeless Men and Women, you will read about specially targeted programs for women, Alaskan natives, American Indians, blacks, and Hispanics, homeless individuals with mental illness, clients who use both drugs and alcohol, chronic alcoholics, and cocaine addicts. You will also observe the varying philosophical and programmatic differences; the problems of implementing programs, including community resistance and staffing issues; and the procedures for assessing the outcome of their programs. In addition to a comprehensive review of each project, this exciting new volume also includes an overview of the efforts of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism with the homeless and implications for future policy and programming decisions. An important book for health care providers, program administrators, state and local officials, researchers, and educators.

Description : Responding to the Homeless: Policy and Practice is largely a product of a unique collaboration between Russell K. Schutt and Gerald R. Garrett and their Boston community. As such, it offers a rich perspective on the problem of homelessness that is derived from the authors' shared experience with researchers, academics, students, providers, policymakers, and homeless persons themselves. Schutt and Garrett take the reader into the shelters and acquaint him or her with the philosophical and practical dilemmas facing line workers as well as policymakers. They also take the reader into the community to better understand the housing market and the dysfunctional continuities among shelter, housing, treatment, and social supports. There are sensitive discussions of the salient health problems that too commonly touch the lives of homeless individuals, such as substance abuse and AIDS. The volume also includes clear descriptions of the sometimes elusive processes of counseling and case management for homeless individuals. The sidebars of "what to do" and "what not to do" contain useful information that will both inform and empower individuals who are working on the front lines, and inspire and prepare future caregivers. While the eminently readable organization and style of the book are sugges tive of a highly practical handbook on the basics of homelessness, the authors and their contributors have also produced a scholarly volume that is replete with current research findings, programs descriptions, case studies, and vignettes.

Description : Spiritual issues and forgiveness are often neglected topics in treatment programs for substance abusers. Spirituality and Religiousness and Alcohol/Other Drug Problems brings those underrated components of recovery to the forefront through current research, case studies, and the insight of experts in the field of spirituality as well as drug/alcohol treatment. This unique book illustrates the important interrelationship among religiousness, spirituality, forgiveness, and alcohol and drug use and abuse throughout the lifespan. The contributors examine the effects of religiousness and spirituality on recovery in relation to more widely recognized supports. Each chapter is extensively referenced, and most include tables and/or figures that make difficult information easy to understand and work with.
