Research Evidence and the Therapeutic Community
This volume collects a wide range of papers discussing all aspects of Therapeutic Community (TC) research. An invaluable resource for anyone involved in the field, it considers questions of which methods are most appropriate in the TC environment, how research studies affect this, as well as practical and ethical questions.
Written by academics and practitioners from around the world, this is a comprehensive overview of the development of therapeutic communities and their benefits for treating drug users. Contributors describe how the model operates in the community, and how it has been modified to fit different settings, types of client and referral requirements.
Pathways to Recovery
This edited collection brings together the thoughts and experiences of researchers, practitioners and service users from the fields of health, addiction and criminal justice and centres on current developments in addiction policy and practice. Tackling Addiction examines what recovery, addiction and dependence really mean.
