From the Publisher

Considering the abysmal track record of orthodox drug rehabilitation programs, whereby a ten percent abstinence rate after one year of treatment is regarded as successful, a responsible introduction to viable alternative methodologies brings hope and promise along with new insight and information. Medical anthropologist H. K. Heggenhougen reviews the growing body of literature that describes and assesses traditional interventions rooted in other cultures (Buddhist, Malay, Native American, etc.), as well as therapies advanced through alternative achievements like acupuncture, biofeedback, and meditation. Besides exploring their salient features and evaluating their efficacy, Dr. Heggenhougen comments authoritatively on their transferability to conventional American and European addiction programs, and supplies an annotated bibliography for use as an independent resource by theoreticians and practitioners in the fields of detoxification and rehabilitation. Exposure to the cross-cultural perspective, replete with potential for creative adaptation, enriches our understanding as it expands exponentially our repertoire of treatment options.
