Reclaim Your Family From Addiction

Reclaim Your Family From Addiction
How Couples and Families Recover Love and Meaning

Softcover, 288 pages    Author: Craig Nakken    Item: 1192
Publisher: Hazelden Publishing and Educational Services  Published Year: 2000

What happens to the "we" of a family when one member opts for the blind and single-minded "me" of addiction? In an instructive, reassuring way, Craig Nakken explains just how families and couples who have spent years building a life together can lose their cohesive identity and meaning in the wake of addiction. The perfect starting point in the healing process, this book also reminds us that recovery is possible--for individuals, couples, and whole families--if only we know what to do. With histories, personal stories, and the latest research, the book helps readers chart their own way out of the hell of addiction and back to the fullness of family by using principles that restore the "we" of lasting, loving relationships.

Craig Nakken, M.S.W., author of The Addictive Personality and Men's Issues in Recovery, lectures, trains, and specializes as a family therapist in the treatment of addiction. He lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

It Will Never Happen to Me

It Will Never Happen to Me
Growing Up with Addiction As Youngsters, Adolescents, Adults

Softcover, 225 pages    Author: Claudia Black    Item: 1971
Publisher: Hazelden Publishing and Educational Services  Published Year: 2002

First published 20 years ago, It Will Never Happen to Me is the definitive book/workbook for adult children of alcoholics. With her reassuring and informative approach, Claudia Black expertly identifies common issues faced by children who grew up in alcoholic families-shame, neglect, unreasonable role expectations, and physical abuse. Using narratives and profiles, she describes survival techniques characteristic of children raised in alcoholic families, including the unspoken laws of don't talk, don't trust, and don't feel. First explaining how such learned responses cause difficulties in adulthood, Black carefully guides readers in identifying self-defeating, destructive behaviors and finding a healthier, happier way to live.

Meth
The Official Patient's Sourcebook on Methamphetamine Dependence: A Revised and Updated Directory for the Internet Age

Paperback: 176 pages    Publisher: Icon Health Publications (July 1, 2002)

This is a "must have" reference book for patients, parents, caregivers, and libraries with medical collections. This sourcebook is organized into three parts. Part I explores basic techniques to researching methamphetamine dependence (e.g. finding guidelines on diagnosis, treatments, and prognosis), followed by a number of topics, including information on how to get in touch with organizations, associations, or other patient networks dedicated to methamphetamine dependence. It also gives you sources of information that can help you find a doctor in your local area specializing in treating methamphetamine dependence. Collectively, the material presented in Part I is a complete primer on basic research topics for patients with methamphetamine dependence. Part II moves on to advanced research dedicated to methamphetamine dependence. Part II is intended for those willing to invest many hours of hard work and study. It is here that we direct you to the latest scientific and applied research on methamphetamine dependence. When possible, contact names, links via the Internet, and summaries are provided. In general, every attempt is made to recommend "free-to-use" options. Part III provides appendices of useful background reading for all patients with methamphetamine dependence or related disorders. The appendices are dedicated to more pragmatic issues faced by many patients with methamphetamine dependence. Accessing materials via medical libraries may be the only option for some readers, so a guide is provided for finding local medical libraries which are open to the public. Part III, therefore, focuses on advice that goes beyond the biological and scientific issues facing patients with methamphetamine dependence.

Paperback: 240 pages    Publisher: Alyson Publications  (February 15, 2004)

Drawing upon conversations with addicts as well as experts in the gay community and at drug treatment centers, journalist Frank Sanello examines how crystal-meth abuse is reaching epidemic levels among gay men, and how almost one-third of the new cases of HIV are caused by the decreased mental capacity associated with crystal.

Suicide Tuesday : Gay Men and the Crystal Meth Epidemic

Paperback: 150 pages    Publisher: Carroll & Graf (September 9, 2005)

Crystal methamphetamine, also known as "crystal meth," has rocked national news headlines as the often deadly party drug of choice for gay and bisexual men. The recent media blitz around the so-called "AIDS supervirus" was only one of virtually thousands of earlier stories that laid the blame for an outbreak of new HIV transmission among gay men on impaired judgment brought about by crystal meth use. The low-priced stimulant—which can be snorted, smoked, ingested, or injected—increases its user’s heart rate, blood pressure, and stamina, while decreasing the need for food and sleep. Health experts estimate that 22 percent of all gay men have tried crystal meth at least once. Heterosexuals, including teenage girls, have also joined the millions of crystal meth users and addicts.
In Suicide Tuesday, Duncan Osborne, the leading journalist on the topic of gay men and crystal meth, offers a critical, clear-eyed look on the history of crystal meth, its effect on gay men, its alleged link to HIV transmission, the gay community’s response to the reported epidemic, as well as the media’s role in fostering public awareness but also sex panic among gay people.

Marijuana
The Truth About Pot The Truth About Pot
Ten Recovering Marijuana Users Share Their Personal Stories

Softcover, 208 pages    Author: Joanne Baum    Item: 3130
Publisher: Hazelden / Johnson Institute    Published Year: 1996

Marijuana use has increased over the past four years and now accounts for over 81 percent of this nation's illicit drug use. It is widely considered not only to be harmless to its users but also to have the power to enhance concentration and creativity, to relieve pain and suffering, and to offer a much needed respite from the hectic pace of today's world.
It's no wonder that marijuana is surrounded by confusion and myth. Used widely during the past three decades, it has been both praised and condemned. With little or no research up to now either to corroborate or dispute the myths, many people, especially teenagers, are confused.

In The Truth about Pot, Joanne Baum reveals the damage marijuana can do in people's lives. "It is certainly clear from these people's stories ranging from nine months to almost fifteen years...that pot is not a harmless drug to be used with no consequences," writes Baum in the final chapter. "Marijuana users can lose years from their lives and experience long-lasting mental and emotional pain."

Reefer Madness Video

Reefer Madness Video
Women Cry for It! Men Die for It!
The 1936 Drug Scare Cult Classic

Video, 1/2" VHS, 66 min, Black and White    Item: 7119
Publisher: Ingram Entertainment    Published Year: 1939

Often dismissed as a hysterical reaction to the growing drug menace, Reefer Madness was in fact an influential independent film that cunningly profited from America's narcotic paranoia. In the guise of a high-minded educational drama, Reefer Madness indulges the carnal curiosity of viewers yearning for a glimpse into a world more sordid than their own.

While an anti-drug crusader lectures a group of concerned citizens, the town's innocent teens are drawn into a vice-ridden web of reefers, red hot jazz, and the insanity they provoke. With frequent detours through frank sexual terrain, director Louis Gasnier and producer George Hirliman (who together comprised G&H Productions) proved they were neither saints nor saps when it came to making movies. They brilliantly demonstrate the most basic principle of exploitation: any vice can be indulged to an excessive degree as long as it is cloaked in a wrapper of education.

When Painkillers Become Dangerous

When Painkillers Become Dangerous
What Everyone Needs to Know About OxyContin and other Prescription Drugs

Publisher: Hazelden Publishing and Educational Services  Published Year: 2004

Whether prescribed by a physician as OxyContin or purchased on the street as "hillbilly heroin," painkilling drugs are extremely effective in eliminating physical, emotional, and psychological distress. The problem is that these drugs are also incredibly addictive. Misuse of and addiction to prescription pain medications has become America's latest, complex, and alarming drug abuse trend. In fact, an estimated 2.6 million people currently use prescription pain relievers non-medically-a dangerous practice that could quickly reach epidemic proportions.
Best-selling author Drew Pinsky, M.D., and five other leading experts offer practical, plainspoken, and much-needed information about addiction to painkilling drugs.
