Inside Rehab

The Surprising Truth About Addiction Treatment--and How to Get Help That Works

An eye-opening tour of the addiction treatment industry explores the gap between what should happen and what does What happens inside drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers and how rehab works are a mystery to those outside the industry – and sometimes even to those inside it. Anne M. Fletcher is a trusted New York Times bestselling health and medical writer who visited 15 addiction treatment centers—from outpatient programs for the indigent to famous celebrity rehabs; from the sites of renowned Twelve-Step centers to several unconventional programs—to find out what really happens. What she reveals ranges from inspirational to irresponsible, and, in some cases, potentially dangerous. Real Stories: As always with her books, Fletcher gets the inside story by turning to real people who “have been there,” interviewing more than 100 individuals whose compelling stories illustrate serious issues facing people in rehab and endemic in the rehab industry today. Connected Writer and Researcher who has earned the respect (and cooperation) of experts throughout the fields she’s taken on. Inside Rehab is no exception—Fletcher has interviewed more than 100 professionals working in the field, including a mix of rehab staffers and administrators as well as leading academics. Rehab is constantly covered in the media, as celebrities battle their drug and alcohol issues in the spotlight and reality TV puts recovery in prime time. Addiction is no longer only a personal struggle—it’s a pop culture phenomenon. Myth Busting: Fletcher exposes twelve supposed facts for the falsehoods they are, including “rehab is necessary for most people to recover from addictions;” “highly trained professionals provide most of the treatment in addiction programs;” and “drugs should not be used to treat a drug addict.” Fletcher’s most important finding is the alarming discrepancy between the treatments being employed at many rehab centers and the treatments recommended by leading experts and supported by scientific research. Guidance and Practical Solutions: Inside Rehab also highlights what is working, spotlights state-of-the-art programs and practices, and offers advice and guidance for people seeking quality care and treatment for themselves or those they care about. Inside Rehab is the first book to give readers a thoughtful, sensitive, and bracingly honest insider’s view of the drug and alcohol rehab industry in America. For people seeking quality care for themselves or a loved one, Inside Rehab is essential reading, offering a wealth of accurate information and wise guidance.

Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction

Sex addiction is on the increase - in the media as well as in the therapy room. But while more and more people seek help for their compulsive sexual behaviours, there is still confusion and debate about whether the condition even exists. Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction explains why an increasing number of people are inadvertently finding their lives devastated by their sexual behaviours. It explores the latest scientific understandings and research into why pornography, cyber sex, visiting sex workers, fetishes and multiple affairs can come to control some people's lives to the point that they can't stop. It explains how sex addiction is not a moral issue, as some assume, but a health issue that we as a society need to start taking seriously. Throughout the book are the revealing statistics from the UK's latest survey on sex addiction. Three hundred and fifty people who struggle with this condition have bravely and candidly shared their experience for the benefit of their fellow sufferers and those who choose to help them. This book contains support and advice for both the clinician and for those who suffer from sex addiction. As well as practical guidance and techniques for stopping compulsive behaviours and preventing relapse, there is also a thorough exploration of the deeper underlying causes and how these must be addressed.

Juni 1969: Die zähen Jahre am College sind vorbei. Mark Vonnegut, Sohn des berühmten Schriftstellers Kurt Vonnegut, zieht es in die Wildnis. Mit seiner Freundin Virginia und ein paar College-Freunden will er der Welt, in der er lebt und an der er (ver)zweifelt, entfliehen. Mit einem VW Käfer geht es ans Ende der Zivilisation, in eine entlegene Region Kanadas. Eindringlich und humorvoll erzählt Vonnegut vom harten und entbehrungsreichen Leben in der Kommune auf einer kleinen Insel ohne Elektrizität, 18 Kilometer per Boot von der nächsten Straße entfernt. Die Freunde beschäftigen sich hauptsächlich mit sich selbst. Doch irgendwann fängt Mark an, Stimmen zu hören. Die Hippie-Utopie gerät mehr und mehr zum Alptraum – einem Horrortrip, der am Valentinstag 1971 in der Gummizelle einer psychiatrischen Klinik endet. Nach intensiver Behandlung und vielen Rückschlägen wird Vonnegut schließlich geheilt und beginnt ein neues Leben – in die Kommune kehrt er nie wieder zurück. Das Buch gilt längst als Klassiker. Nun erscheint es, mit einem Vorwort von Kurt Vonnegut versehen, zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch.
