December 31, 2022

BOOK RECOMMENDATION: Andrea Bushman, Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor with HBH often utilizes the book, “Uppers, Downers, and All Arounders” by Darryl S. Inaba, Michael E. Holstein, and William E. Cohen in her practice. Here’s what Andrea shares about the book:

“I often utilize this informative book in my practice when working with clients who are struggling with substance use, alcohol addiction, and mental health disorders. The information in the book focuses on how mood-altering drugs affect the brain and the nervous system in humans. In addition, it explores how addiction becomes a disease, as well as knowing how to obtain treatment, go through the five stages of change in addiction recovery, and recognize how to deal with the disease of alcoholism.”
