Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Eric Scalise


Description: "A much-needed tool in today's broken world."--John Baker, founder of Celebrate Recovery

We live in an addictive age, and many people are suffering silently. For anyone who is called to counsel those with addictions, The Quick-Reference Guide to Addictions and Recovery Counseling will be a welcome guide to bring hope, life, and freedom.

This A-Z guide gives pastors, professional counselors, and lay helpers the information they need to help recovering church members, clients, and friends work through the spiritual and emotional issues connected to addiction. The many types of substance abuse and behavioral addictions addressed include:

· alcohol
· caffeine
· depressants
· narcotics
· prescription drugs
· cutting and self-harm
· eating disorders
· gambling
· hoarding
· internet use and gaming
· shopping
· social networking

Each of the forty topics covered follows a helpful eight-part outline and identifies typical symptoms and patterns, definitions and key thoughts, questions to ask, directions for the conversation, action steps, biblical insights, prayer starters, and recommended resources.

"This in-depth guide should be at the top of your list as you pour grace into hurting lives and lead people toward recovery."--Mark Laaser, cofounder of Faithful and True and bestselling author of Healing the Wounds of Sexual Addiction

"This fills the gap that is there for many in the helping profession."--Stephen Arterburn, founder and chairman of New Life Ministries, cohost of New Life Live!, and bestselling author of the Every Man series

"An excellent and invaluable resource for pastors, lay leaders, and counselors dealing with ministry for those trapped in addiction--especially for those inside the church doors."--David Stoop, psychologist, coauthor of the Life Recovery Bible, and cohost of New Life Live!
