Addiction cures grew at prolific rates during the last quarter of the 19th .

Addiction cures grew at prolific rates during the last quarter of the 19th century. The drive toward alcohol and other drug prohibition whetted America's appetite for sobriety and opened business opportunities for those who promised aid in achieving this goal. Along with the religiously influenced inebriate homes and more medically oriented inebriate asylums came a growing number of business-oriented addiction cures. This treatment was lauded as a cure of miraculous potential-and at the same time attacked as a fraud. Keeley Cure Advertisement. Courtesy Illinois Addiction Studies Archives.

  • This is a scholarly work and probably not for the general reader who is just curious about addiction and the history of treatment. But, if you are a counselor/therapist and want information that has depth and breadth, this is for you. Lots of reading but worth your time. William White is one of the greatest contributors, in my opinion, to the study of and treatment of addiction. He goes to where the action is and shares what he has learned.

  • This was a terrific book for anyone interested in how drug addiction and alcohol addiction has been dealt with through the ages. It was an enlightening book for me with family members who have suffered with these conditions. I still think that the general public wants to blame those that suffer. Even though this book is more a textbook for those professionals that deal with this issue I think it is a good book for family members and those who have suffered with these diseases to learn how treatment has been handled through the ages.

  • As a person in long-term recovery and a addiction professional, I have read quite a bit of history of mutual self-help support groups and other things pertaining to recovery and addiction. But this book is unmatched and is a treasure chest of information, from beginning to end! It is absolutely the COMPLETE history of addiction and recovery. So many people out there (even professionals in the industry) that I come across do not have a clue about the history of the profession for which they are a part of. I wish this book was required reading! We could learn so much from just looking back just a few decades ago.

  • If you call yourself an addiction professional, you should be conversant in the history of your field. Slaying the Dragon is the most definitive work of its kind in the English language. The book is as scholarly as it is readable. The author, Bill White, is a superb writer. He is also a prolific writer publishing over 200 refereed journal articles, chapters, and monographs. Bill knows his subject. Don't be put off by the 1998 publication date. History is history, and there is a lot of it before 1998 worth knowing. The addiction field can only hope that an update will be published that will cover the amazing progress in the pharmacology and neuroscience of addiction, and the spread of evidence-based treatments. I oversee the nation's addiction recovery research program. Only one book is a fixture on my desktop; Slaying the Dragon.

  • This is a must have book for any student of substance abuse, addiction or those who have multiple clients with substance abuse/addiction. Bill White's knowledge of the field is unsurpassed in my opinion. The book should be required reading for all potential and future addiction/alcoholism counselors. A true gift to the filed of human services.

  • I'll bet not one person in a hundred who is employed in the addictions field has any idea of the history of their profession. This is a history book that is chock full of the befuddled efforts of millions of people who have tried almost everything to get sober. Carrie Nation, The Keeley Institute, Kellogg and his corn flakes, the gold IV injection treatment, and the use of methamphetimine right down to MADD... this book details a group of people who, on their own, tried to fight addiction and support each other in their sobriety. All this without the help of the government until recent times. A textbook, a whodunnit, an emotional journey through hell and out the other side This is the definitive history of addiction treatment attempts in the United States of America. How anyone can call themselves a therapist and not have an intimate knowledge of this material is beyond me. Three thumbs up!

  • Excellent product and fast shipping!

  • If you work in the field of addiction recovery you need to read this book.
