"Dr. Margaret Fetting's book is essential reading for students, clinicians, and those who suffer from alcohol and substance use disorders. Fetting traces the ancient roots of the human wish to become intoxicated, and, without judgment, puts that desire into a modern context. For the past 80 years, the U.S. has relied on a one-size-fits-all treatment for a complex set of problems, and Fetting presents flexible and innovative approaches for addiction and substance-use disorders at a time when Americans are desperate for alternatives -- for themselves, their loved ones, and their clients. This highly readable, engaging book is essential for clinicians, faculty and students of addiction and also those who struggle with substance- and alcohol-use disorders themselves."
