As a member of the professional body for Addiction and Drug Addiction, Dr. Robert J. Henley is the founder and president of Hennepin County Professional Association, which represents professionals in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. A licensed psychologist in Phoenix AZ, Dr. Henley has been involved with many programs in the area of substance abuse treatment. He was the creator of the first drug intervention and drug rehab program in Arizona, and he developed Phoenix’s substance abuse treatment programs in the 1970’s. In addition to his professional involvement in addiction treatment and counseling, Dr. Henley is an author of numerous books on this subject matter. The most recent of these books, entitled “The Last Resort: Recovering From Alcoholism and Drug Addiction” is about an addiction treatment program in the U.K. where Dr. Henley also works. I recently had the opportunity to interview Dr. Henley on the subject of drug and alcohol addiction.
The book was written for those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, and was designed to help individuals overcome their addictions in a short period of time. The book is full of detailed information and facts that anyone can use to make educated decisions regarding substance abuse and alcoholism treatment. The book also addresses issues surrounding the use of medical marijuana in Colorado and Washington State, and how they may affect the quality of care provided by substance abuse treatment facilities. In addition to the various topics covered in the book, Dr. Henley also discusses the role of family in addiction treatment, and shares his experiences with his own family members suffering from addictions. I highly recommend this book to those interested in getting involved in the treatment of alcohol or drug addiction, as it is not only a great resource for those suffering from addiction, but also to those interested in addiction and substance abuse treatment.
It should be noted that although The Last Resort was written for those suffering from addiction, the book does cover many topics relating to substance abuse and addiction treatment, and should be of interest to those in the field of addiction and substance abuse treatment. If you are interested in a book like this, the information provided may help you gain a better understanding of your own addiction and the treatment options available to you. If you would prefer a more in-depth reading experience, a review copy of this book is available on the website of Dr. Henley, and the information contained within will be much more useful.
