Summary
Most people who abuse illegal drugs don't fit the image of the dysfunctional, hustling addict who can't fit into normal society. Between the estimated 10 percent of the population who are true addicts and those who don't use drugs at all falls a group of regular drug users who oftentimes don't realize how much their use is affecting their daily lives. According to J. Wesley Boyd, MD, of Harvard Medical School, and Eric Metcalf, MPH, these people are are almost addicted. Whether their drug of choice is legal or illegal, an upper or a hallucinogen, an almost addicts' drug use is negatively impacting their quality of life-but falls short of meeting the diagnostic criteria for substance abuse or dependence. For the first time, Boyd and Metcalf describe what it is to be almost addicted and provide almost addicts and their loved ones with the knowledge and guidance to address and evaluate their condition. In this book, readers will find the tools to - identify and assess their patterns of drug use; - evaluate its impact on relationships, work, and personal well being; - develop strategies and goals for abstaining from or cutting back on drugs; - measure the results of applying these strategies; and make informed decisions about next steps, including getting professional help if needed
