Tackling Addiction: Pathways to Recovery 
Edited by Rowdy Yates and Margaret S. Malloch 

176pp ISBN: 9781849050173 pb £19.99 

The issue of ‘recovery’ has been increasingly prioritised by policymakers in recent years, but the meaning of the concept remains ambiguous. This edited collection brings together the thoughts and experiences of researchers, practitioners and service users from the fields of health, addiction and criminal justice and centres on current developments in addiction policy and practice. Tackling Addiction examines what recovery, addiction and dependency really mean, not only to the professional involved in rehabilitation but also to each individual client, and how ‘coerced treatment’ fails to take account of 
recovery as a long-term and ongoing process. Chapters cover the influence of crime and public health in UK drug policy; the ongoing emphasis on substitute prescribing; the role of recovery groups and communities; and gendered differences in the recovery process and implications for responses aimed at supporting women. Tackling Addiction will be essential reading for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and students in the fields of addiction, social care and criminal justice. 

Rowdy Yates is Senior Research Fellow in Scottish Addiction Studies, Department of Applied Social Science, University of Stirling. Rowdy co-edited Therapeutic Communities for the Treatment of Drug Users, with Barbara Rawlings. Margaret S. Malloch is Senior Research Fellow in the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research, University of Stirling. She is also the author of Women, Drugs and Custody.
