Yates, Rowdy and Malloch, Margaret S (2010) Tackling addiction. London: Jessica Kingsley .

Tackling addiction examines what recover, addiction and dependence really mean, not only to the professional involved in rehabilitation but also to each individual seeking to recover, and how 'coerced treatment' through the criminal justice system can fail to take account of recovery as a long-term and ongoing process.

Chapters cover the role of recovery groups and communities; recovery in therapeutic communities; the ongoing emphasis on substitute prescribing; gendered differences in the recovery process and implications for responses aimed at supporting women.
