Working with Drug Family Support Group


IBSN: 1853433373 Categories: ,


To date, professionals who work with drug users have given greatest emphasis to counselling the users themselves, to the exclusion of others with whom they may be involved, in particular their families who themselves may be experiencing great amounts of distress. This book introduces the reader to the setting up and running of a drug support group and illustrates the underlying approach of providing mutual support for everyone involved. Using many practical examples, Paul Lockley takes the reader, step by step, through the establishment and life of a support group, and the work it entails. In the process of examining the life and work of the group, attention is given to aspects such as group attendance, development, difficulties and assessment.
