The selfish brain : learning from addiction by Robert L DuPont( )

11 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in English and held by 1,680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Selfish Brain: Learning From Addiction takes a comprehensive, no-holds-barred look at the easy path to drug addiction and the tough road to recovery. Written in an easy-to-understand style, this book can help people confront addiction in their own lives and in their families by exploring the biological roots of addiction and the way addicts are allowed to deny their addiction by compassionate, well-meaning people. Based on his experience as a specialist on addiction and as a policymaker, former drug czar Robert L. DuPont, M.D., advocates "tough-love" measures to strip away the denial that allows addicts to remain trapped in their destructive habit and place them on the road to recovery. He examines treatment options, especially 12-step programs, which he believes are the most effective path to recovery

Handbook on drug abuse by Robert L DuPont( Book )

7 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decade of professional research on drug abuse has produced both an abundance of materials and a vocabulary that is not shared by planners, clinicians, and policy makers. This handbook compiles the major developments of the period and their treatment and research implications in a style intended to be understood by all three types of professionals. Over 40 authors surveyed the literature in their own area of expertise, often including their own viewpoints and recommendations. The nine sections of the book range from the history of the field through treatment modalities, as well as specific methods for specialized needs; specific drugs or classes of drugs; drug use from both a psychosocial and epidemiological perspective; the special issues of management, training, and prevention; and a section on research prospects and an assessment of future direction of the field.

A bridge to recovery : an introduction to 12-step programs by Robert L DuPont( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twelve-step programs are revolutionizing and reshaping 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
Crack cocaine : a challenge for prevention by United States( Book )

4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph presents the history and epidemiology of crack cocaine and demonstrates aspects of the drug and its use that are unique in the field of prevention. Problems specific to crack cocaine that require specifically focused prevention strategies are examined and recommendations for a crack cocaine research agenda are provided. Chapter 1 examines crack cocaine epidemiology, including sources of data, a summary of national survey data, and observations derived from other data sources. Chapter 2 discusses drug abuse patterns, first looking at general drug abuse patterns and then examining crack cocaine use patterns. Chapter 3 focuses on defining drug use prevention, reviewing prevention strategies of the 20th century, contemporary drug use prevention programs, and preventing crack cocaine use. Chapter 4 discusses the research agenda for crack cocaine use prevention. It describes etiologic and epidemiologic studies, evaluation research, and information exchange. The report concludes that there must be continued research to assess the efficacy of prevention efforts and to communicate the process and the outcomes of successful prevention efforts. References are included. (ABL)

2 editions published in 1992 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection offers information on socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of synthetic drug users, characteristics of synthetic drug use such as frequency and method of intake, and factors that prompt drug users to begin to use synthetic drugs or to switch from agricultural drugs to synthetic drugs. Synthetic drugs investigated in the collection include PCP, ice, ecstasy, and speed, while nonsynthetic drugs include alcohol, marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and crack. Patterns of use for all of these drugs are explored. Questions about specific drugs include whether the respondent had ever used the drug, age first used, number of days in the past 30 days the drug was used, whether the drug was used more than two times per week, method of drug intake, and the drug used most often by the respondent and by the respondent's friends. Additional variables include reasons for preferring synthetic or nonsynthetic drugs, reasons the respondent would discontinue use or switch to another drug, availability and cost of certain drugs, and extent of involvement in selling, money handling, and protection. Finally, demographic variables such as sex, ethnicity, age, highest grade completed, employment activity in the past month, geographical location, and subject source (criminal justice system or drug treatment center) are included in the file. The unit of analysis is the individual drug user ... Cf.:
