Sobre o livro
"e;Opiates, Methadone, and Detox"e; was written by an active Substance Abuse Counselor; with the hope of educating families who are dealing with opiate dependent loved ones. The struggles that opiate dependent families go through to hide their addiction can lead to the destruction of the family unit. Young families are often torn apart when one parent goes to jail while the other is left behind to deal with financial problems, the need for a good job, child care, and oftentimes the DSS (Department of Social Services). It's common for children in opiate dependent households to be removed from the home to live with grandparents, or with foster parents under the care of DSS. Before life deteriorates to this level one needs to understand opiate addiction, the methadone option, and the detox option so as to map out a realistic pathway to recovery. This book is easy to read and provides several case studies designed to enlighten the reader as to what works and what does not. Also included, is a list of research based websites that seek to educate readers on drug abuse and recovery resources without annoying pop up ads and other sales gimmicks.
