Summary
  • Lonny Shavelson takes an unprecedented journey into the lives of addicts struggling to get clean. Shavelson, a noted physician, photographer, and journalist, trailed five addicts for two years through different California drug rehabilitation programs, some voluntary and others court-mandated. He follows addicts behind the closed doors of rehabilitation centers, doctors' offices, and judges' chambers, and, often, back to the street. Defying expectations about drug treatment and how it works, Hooked highlights the links between drug addiction, mental illness, and trauma, including child abuse--links that are too often overlooked by current treatment efforts. Shavelson argues for an integrated approach to drug treatment that addresses the root causes of drug abuse, not just its outward behaviors.--From publisher description
  • Follows the lives of five narcotics addicts for two years, as they move through various drug rehabilitation programs in San Francisco
  • "The human face of drug addiction has been lost in a blizzard of statistics, stereotypes, and hyped-up media images. In Hooked, Lonny Shavelson takes a powerful and unprecedented journey into the lives of addicts struggling to get clean. Shavelson, a noted physician, photographer, and journalist, trailed five addicts for two years through different California drug rehabilitation programs, some voluntary and others court-mandated. On a gripping trek, he follows addicts behind the closed doors of rehabilitation centers, doctors' offices, and judges' chambers, and, often, back to the street." "Defying expectations about drug treatment and how it works, Hooked highlights the links between drug addiction, mental illness, and trauma, including child abuse - links that are too often overlooked by current treatment efforts. Shavelson argues for an integrated approach to drug treatment that addresses the root causes of drug abuse, not just its outward behaviors." "The topic of drug addiction touches almost every family, and Shavelson explores it with the same sensitivity and insight he brought to his previous book on physician-assisted suicide."--BOOK JACKET
