Welcome to My World was written to answer the question, “What really happens in rehab?” from a counselor’s perspective. A veteran of multiple substance abuse program staffs, Mary Crocker Cook has created an engaging and realistic cast of characters; a composite of chemical dependency counselors she has respected and loved over the years. While quirky and challenged by their own issues, the clinical work and interventions reveal a solid and realistic approach to addiction treatment that is both ethical and effective.
This book is a “must read” for:
· People considering entering the addiction field as a counselor
· Family members of those in addiction treatment
· Current substance abuse treatment staff who will recognize and laugh at themselves, as well as pick up some great psychoeducation material
Over the course of a rapidly unfolding week of treatment, readers will participate in women's groups, clinical staffing, community groups, psychoeducation groups, family groups, and individual and family counseling sessions. This is the first of two novels that follow this warm and talented staff, and you will find yourself rooting for them AND their clients as they take on this challenging and deadly disease.
