Using an "Integrated Addiction Model (I.AM)", the counselors and clinicians are able to focus on the "Why" of each person 's addiction.

But, what if it doesn’t work? This question is addressed in the third section of the article.

Before the advent of various Recovery Model, there wasn’t much available to treatment or modalities when it came to helping patients recover from mental disorder, apart from the traditional medical approach.

For the last six years, I have been working in the substance abuse industry in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Addiction has been found to be multifaceted, and most agree that recovery must focus on the many “underlying” psychological, emotional, physical, spiritual and social issues that cause drug and alcohol abuse. Solomon’s book attempts to present why traditional treatment does not work and to provide resources for alternative methods. Some of the alternatives focus on specific aspects of recovery, while others address numerous factors tailored to fit an individual’s needs. People struggling to succeed in AA or other 12-step programs will find the information in this book

These evidence-based interventional programs included family interventions approaches targeting indicated prevention with diagnosed youth. Examples of programs that cover this area include all of the more costly family therapy interventions serving individual dysfunctional families by highly skilled and trained professional family therapists, such as Brief Strategic and Structural Family Therapy  and Multidimensional Family Therapy [Liddle, 2009] for treating drug abusing youth, and likewise Multi systemic Therapy and Functional Family Therapy for treating acting out, conduct disordered, or highly delinquent youth.
