Twelve-step programs are revolutionizing and reshaping our thinking about -- and treatment of -- addiction. Because these programs are based in the community instead of in an institutional or academic setting, they often employ techniques and language that can be confusing and alien to health care professionals. Written in a clear, easy-to-understand style, this book explores these programs and provides a guide on how to integrate them into ongoing human services. Written by internationally renowned experts, A Bridge to Recovery: An Introduction to 12-Step Programs includes up-to-date information to bridge the gap between mutual aid programs, human services, and the professional community. This practical book is designed to assist with the implementation of these programs into routine practice while providing a useful reference for academic and educational professionals.
