Editorial Review:

Product Description:


This book is dedicated to the prevention, treatment, and recovery of African Americans with substance use disorders. African Americans are disproportionately represented in the addictions, criminal justice, and child welfare systems. It is clear that, when their culturally specific needs are not met, they are vulnerable to continuous relapse and the revolving door syndrome. There has been little written that focuses exclusively on prevention, treatment, and recovery among African Americans. This book was written to fill this gap. It is an important contribution to the field of behavioral health, providing a much-needed treasure trove of important knowledge from specialists, including physicians, psychologists, educators, social workers, addictions counselors, public health specialists, researchers, the clergy, as well as individuals in recovery. This volume adds significantly to the knowledge base of practitioners and researchers whose work focuses on prevention, treatment, and recovery in African American communities.



This book was originally published as a special issue of Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly.
