Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Too often, clients with substance abuse and addiction problems achieve sobriety only to relapse shortly after. As a clinician in the addiction treatment field, you are undoubtedly familiar with this common scenario, and it can be a source of extreme frustration. To make matters worse, clients may see their relapse as evidence of personal failure and inadequacy, and as a result, they may resist more treatment. What if you could break this cycle and help clients maintain their progress?

Mindfulness-Based Sobriety presents a breakthrough, integrative approach to addiction recovery to help you treat clients recovering from substance abuse and addiction using mindfulness-based therapy, motivational interviewing, and relapse prevention therapy. Research has indicated that mindfulness-based therapy is highly effective in treating emotion dysregulation, stress, depression, and grief—all emotions that lie at the root of addiction. Motivational interviewing is helpful in treating addiction because it helps clients learn to change the behaviors that cause addiction. And finally, relapse prevention therapy teaches individuals with addiction to anticipate and cope with potential relapse. This book combines all three of these highly effective treatments.

This powerful manual was developed by Gateway Foundation clinicians in order to better fulfill the mission of reducing substance abuse and co-occurring mental health problems. The book provides two curricula: an outpatient treatment curriculum and a residential treatment curriculum. Both are user-friendly and can be implemented in an open group format, which means that you can say goodbye to the days of tailoring one-on-one treatment to fit a group setting.

The integrative approach outlined in this book will help your clients conquer substance abuse by identifying their own values, strengthening their motivation, and tackling other mental health problems that may lie at the root of their addiction. Furthermore, the books strong emphasis on relapse prevention means that you can help clients stay on the path to sobriety.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive workbook explains the facts about addiction & provides simple step-by-step directions for working through the stages of the quitting process. The authors help you prepare to quit & explain how to get help & support, use the new craving blocker drugs, relax without chemicals, control and express feelings, and prevent relapse.

Synopsis:

Mindfulness-Based Sobriety presents a breakthrough, integrative approach to addiction recovery for clinicians who treat clients recovering from substance abuse and addiction. The book combines relapse prevention therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and motivational interviewing to help clients conquer substance abuse by identifying their own values, strengthening their motivation, and tackling other mental health problems that may lie at the root of their addiction. The book also puts a strong emphasis on relapse prevention, so that clinicians can help clients stay on the path to sobriety.

Synopsis:

The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction offers a mindfulness-based program for treating addiction created by a psychologist who works for the Department of Veterans Affairs and a marriage and family therapist who works for Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. This unique approach addresses the grief and loss that are often at the root of addiction.

Synopsis:

Most addictive behavior is rooted in some type of loss, be it the death of a loved one, coming to terms with limitations set by chronic health problems, or the end of a relationship. By turning to drugs and alcohol, people who have suffered a loss can numb their grief. In the process, they postpone their healing and can drive themselves further into addiction.

The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction offers readers an effective program for working through their addiction and grief with cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Created by a psychologist who works for the Department of Veterans Affairs and a marriage and family therapist who works for Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, this mindfulness training workbook is effective for treating the emotion dysregulation, stress, depression, and grief that lie at the heart of addiction. No matter the loss, the mindfulness skills in this workbook help readers process their grief, determine the function their addiction is serving, and replace the addiction with healthy coping behaviors.

Synopsis:

If you're thinking about quitting alcohol or drugs, this comprehensive workbook can help you get on track and reach your goals.

The Addiction Workbook starts you on your journey by explaining the facts about addiction. It shows you how you can determine if you have a problem and helps you cut through denial or ambivalence to reach a clear decision to quit. Simple, concise exercises and tips help you gather support, deal with detoxification, improve nutrition, and build a personalized exercise program. You will discover how to relax without chemicals and cope with feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger.

The book's final chapters cover conducting a personal moral inventory and making lifestyle changes to foster long-term relapse prevention.

Direct and easy to understand, for those who want to do something about their use or misuse of alcohol and other drugs.
