Book Description :

This thought provoking book “Adolescent & Young Adult Addiction: The Pathological Relationship to Intoxication and The Interpersonal Neurobiology Underpinnings” discusses the struggles of that the youth of today are faced with and puts forth that adolescent and young adult addicts are not addicted to marijuana, heroin, etc. The name of the drug is an illusion as they are hooked on a pathological “relationship to intoxication.” This book bridges the gap between the mental health and the addiction fields. This book helps the reader to understand that there is no separation between relationships, mind and brain (bio-psycho-social). The peak of intoxication is a release of neurotransmitters, such as, dopamine and often opiate/endorphins. These regulatory systems are actually built, sustained, broken and also repaired in attuned and mis-attuned relationships. How is this so? How does it get repaired? How do we bring this awareness to the client, family and offer the experience of attuned relationships? How do pressures of our left brain, solution focused, material chasing, “on-the-go” culture contribute to this problem? Adolescents and young adults are not supposed to “ask for help” as it is the role of the social systems to work together in a way that helps them recognize their drug use as a problem. After these systems have helped to “lift the bottom” and dislodge the addict’s relationship to intoxication, then the work is on understanding and treating the underpinnings that drive addiction. If the underpinnings are not dealt with, then relapse and cross-addictions will occur. Utilizing attuned relationships to rewrite the internal working model, and sustain neurobiological regulatory systems is the key for long term sobriety... Jon Daily, LSCW, CADCII is an expert in the specialized field of adolescent and young adult addictive disorders and dual diagnosis. Jon’s wisdom on understanding and treating today’s youth combined with his ability to conceptualize and translate interpersonal neurobiology in a straight forward applicable fashion is a real gift to the reader.

Book Description :

Research has shown that, for many teens, trauma can lead to addiction. Now, for the first time ever, two mental health experts offer a powerful, integrative program to effectively treat teens with these co-occurring issues. Trauma and addiction often present side by side. However, up until now, clinicians have lacked the tools needed to treat these two issues together. Based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and mindfulness—two proven-effective therapies for addiction and mental health issues—Treating Co-occurring Adolescent PTSD and Addiction is essential for anyone working with adolescents with addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Developed and researched explicitly for dual diagnosis adolescent clients, this book provides a range of mindfulness practices and tools to help your client be present in what he or she is experiencing—instead of slipping into a pattern of avoidance. In addition, the cognitive behavioral strategies can help adolescents who are at risk of recurrent trauma, and who could therefore benefit from practicing coping strategies to assist them in their current daily situations. This is a must-have resource for any mental health provider treating adolescents with dual diagnosis of PTSD and addiction.

Book Description :

Adolescent substance abuse is the nation's #1 public health problem. It originates out of a developmental era where experimentation with the world is increasingly taking place, and where major changes in physical self and social relationships are taking place. These changes cannot be understood by any one discipline nor can they be described by focusing only on the behavioral and social problems of this age period, the characteristics of normal development, or the pharmacology and addictive potential of specific drugs. They require knowledge of the brain's systems of reward and control, genetics, psychopharmacology, personality, child development, psychopathology, family dynamics, peer group relationships, culture, social policy, and more. Drawing on the expertise of the leading researchers in this field, this Handbook provides the most comprehensive summarization of current knowledge about adolescent substance abuse. The Handbook is organized into eight sections covering the literature on the developmental context of this life period, the epidemiology of adolescent use and abuse, similarities and differences in use, addictive potential, and consequences of use for different drugs; etiology and course as characterized at different levels of mechanistic analysis ranging from the genetic and neural to the behavioural and social. Two sections cover the clinical ramifications of abuse, and prevention and intervention strategies to most effectively deal with these problems. The Handbook's last section addresses the role of social policy in framing the problem, in addressing it, and explores its potential role in alleviating it.

Book Description :

Stress is one of the most commonly reported precipitants of drug use and is considered the number one cause of relapse to drug abuse. For the past several decades, there have been a number of significant advances in research focusing on the neurobiological and psychosocial aspects of stress and addiction; along with this growth came the recognition of the importance of understanding the interaction of biological and psychosocial factors that influence risk for initiation and maintenance of addictive behaviors. Recent research has started to specifically focus on understanding the nature of how stress contributes to addiction - this research has influenced the way we think about addiction and its etiological factors and has produced exciting possibilities for developing effective intervention strategies; to date there has been no available book to integrate this literature. This highly focused work integrates and consolidates available knowledge to provide a resource for researchers and practitioners and for trainees in multiple fields. Stress and Addiction will help neuroscientists, social scientists, and mental health providers in addressing the role of stress in addictive behaviors; the volume is also useful as a reference book for those conducting research in this field. Integrates theoretical and practical issues related to stress and addiction Includes case studies illustrating where an emotional state and addictive behavior represent a prominent feature of the clinical presentation Cross-disciplinary coverage with contributions by by scientists and practitioners from multiple fields, including psychology, neuroscience, neurobiology, and medicine

Book Description :

Here is a comprehensive review of adolescent substance abuse issues and an expansive, empirically based curriculum for school-based programs to teach adolescents about the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The abuse of alcohol and other drugs among young people is a problem of alarming scope and gravity. Adolescent Substance Abuse explores the multiple forces which impact adolescents and can push them toward drug and alcohol abuse. Adolescent Substance Abuse proposes means by which to effect macro-level change in societal norms and values regarding substance abuse. The authors describes in detail an effective means of teaching adolescents about drugs and alcohol using an empirically based teaching method called Teams-Games-Tournaments (TGT). TGT was developed through extensive research on games used as teaching devices. It uses small groups as classroom work units and capitalizes on peer influence by using peers as teachers and supporters. The book explains an effective curriculum which utilizes the TGT approach and provides a program for parents. The curriculum is unique in that it is anchored in empirical data and delivered via adolescent peer groups. Adolescent Substance Abuse addresses other issues pertinent to the reduction of adolescent substance abuse by exploring subsystems of change, including school and peer group environments, home and family, the media, community movements, and business and industry. The book is a great source of innovative ideas for beginning and expert counselors, social workers, mental health professionals, school psychologists, and others who want to prevent adolescent abuse of drugs and alcohol.
