Orford, Jim (2012) Addiction dilemmas. Family experiences from literature and research and their lessons for practice. Oxford: Wiley .

Addiction dilemmas explores the impact of addiction on those closest to the individuals affected - their families. Many barriers can stand in the way of family members receiving help, not least a lack of available services adn a failure on the part of professionals and their organisations to fully appreciate the nature of the dilemmas which they face.

The book's core theme is the stress faced by family members when a close relative has an addiction problem, and the struggles they experience in deciding how to cope.
