Not everyone who experiments with substance use or risky behavior becomes addicted; and many who are addicted have been able to recover. This authoritative ebook; Addiction and Change: How Addictions Develop and Addicted People Recover 2nd edition (PDF) now updated and revised; has given tens of thousands of professionals and students a state-of-the-art framework for understanding the journey both into and out of addiction. From Carlo C. DiClemente; codeveloper of the transtheoretical model (TTM); the ebook identifies the stages and processes involved in initiating; maintaining; modifying; or stopping any pattern of behavior. Grounded in extensive research; and illustrated with vivid case examples; the ebook shows how using the TTM can help overcome obstacles to change and make treatment and prevention more effective.
