About the Author

Jerome D. Levin, Ph.D., is director of the Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Training Program at the New School University in Manhattan, where he also serves both on the Humanities Department faculty, and as co-director o the joint masters program in psychology and substance abuse treatment.


With this volume, Dr. Jerome Levin, an experienced therapist and teacher, has crafted a valuable addition to the literature on alcoholism and other drug addictions. He skillfully and lucidly applies the tenets of self psychology to these disorders and their treatment, such that a wide variety of mental health professionals, therapists, and students of drug dependence are likely to benefit from the book. In a well-organized and literary manner, the author considers the historical biographical, psychological, and spiritual implications of alcoholism and other drug dependencies and their treatment, and he is able to synthesize these effectively. By means of fascinating case material and remarkably interesting references to diverse philosophical, psychological, and medical literature, he develops theoretical and practical guides to treatment. -- Robert B. Millman, M.D.
This book is a comprehensive, broadly encompassing bio-psychosocial treatise on the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions. Jerome D. Levin offers a novel approach in that he places Kohut's self psychology-and Kohut's specific contributions to the understanding and treatment of some addictions-at the center of the clinical as well as theoretical considerations. Every clinician will profit greatly from having all available theories and treatment principles clearly and cogently explicated in a single volume. It is to Levin's credit that he offers his integrated approach with ample clinical material, presented with exemplary vividness and clarity, thereby providing the reader with an opportunity to sort out for himself the most cogent theoretical and treatment principles. -- Paul H. Ornstein, M.D.
