Chronic Relapse

Chronic relapse happens when an individual who is trying to recover from any type of addiction is, for the short term, successful in doing so, and then later falls back into the addiction again. Chronic relapsers can repeat this pattern many times, getting clean from substance abuse, or stopping addictive behaviour, only to later start using the substance or to engage in their addiction once again. With a strong support network and proper medical management, chronic relapsers are eventually capable of overcoming their addictions. Are you, or a friend or loved one experiencing chronic relapse? Do you need information on support networks or group therapies for chronic relapse in your community? Are you looking for a professional who can help you structure a relapse prevention plan, to finally put an end to the cycle of chronic relapse? We have resources within your community that can help.

Depression and Relapse

A Guide to Recovery

Depression is a significant complicating factor in recovery from substance use disorders. Nearly all substance abusers show significant depression in the first several weeks of recovery. In most cases, the depression quickly subsides. Others, however, suffer from serious bouts of depression throughout their recovery. Fortunately the recovery plans for addiction and depression are closely related. Many of things that help people stay comfortably sober also help them manage their depression. This means that a recovery plan meets the needs of both addiction and depression can be developed. They already know and have practiced many of the recovery skills needed to manage depression. All they need to do is learn the few additional techniques that are outlined in this book.

Drugs for Relapse Prevention of Alcoholism

Alcoholism is a pathological behavioural syndrome, characterised by comp- sive alcohol use, craving and relapses, even recurring after many years of abstinence. It is suggested that chronic alcohol abuse leads to persistent changes within several neurochemical pathways in the brain and furthermore that an imprinted drug and addiction memory may scarcely be extinguished. Hence, the question arises as to whether there ought to be a reasonable hope that pharmacological drugs will be developed that interfere with an addiction memory, and as a result, finally lead to a cure? In this book, leading preclinical and clinical experts in the field of alcohol relapse prevention strive to furnish an answer to this question. None of the researchers or clinicians believes in a magic bullet that will be of help to all alcoholic patients in overcoming this disease. However, there is now convi- ing evidence demonstrating that specific subpopulations of alcoholic patients experience satisfactory benefit from currently available treatments. Today we have two medications for relapse prevention on the market – acamprosate and naltrexone. Although, currently, only a minority of alcoholic patients benefit from these medications, the approval of these compounds may be considered a hallmark in the field of psychopharmacology, even comparable to the era when the first antidepressant compounds were introduced. In recent years we have been witnessing an enormous growth in the science and knowledge regarding the field of relapse prevention.

The Chronic Psychiatric Patient in the Community

Principles of Treatment

The purpose of this book is to present an integrated approach to the treatment of the chronic psychiatric patient living in the com munity. This requires that topics as diverse as pharmacokinetics, psychotherapy and community organization be appropriately coor dinated. Such an approach is partly complicated by the wide range of differences among patients, in terms of social skills, intellectual capacity and psychiatric diagnosis. In addition, unclear, insular or overlapping roles of various mental health disciplines further con found integrated treatment efforts. Given such complexity, any single clinician's point of view is sub ject to the distortion inherent in specialization. Too often a volume in the field of mental health focuses either on only one aspect or presents only one clinician's unique perspective of a task that is, in fact, multifaceted. We have tried to avoid this pitfall by having representatives from many of the concerned professions present a variety of treatment approaches and associated issues in one text. Further, the editors have attempted to illuminate the relevant clinical and/or administrative interrelationship between the subjects of each section through a succinct introductory commentary. The book is divided into five sections. The first section represents an attempt to address some of the interactive sociological, psycho logical and pharmacological background issues common to all at tempts at treatment of this population.
