Aging and Addiction : Helping Older Adults Overcome Alcohol or Medication Dependence-A Hazelden Guidebook
by Carol Colleran and Debra Jay




Overview -
The coronavirus pandemic has hit older adults especially hard. This book can help elders and their loved ones recognize how anxiety can lead to substance use and addiction, and how to help--even from a distance.

The authors, both experts in the field of addiction treatment and intervention, provide a respectful, definitive guide for recognizing and addressing substance abuse among older adults.

Addiction among older adults is a hidden and hushed problem. Signs and symptoms of alcohol or medication abuse can easily be mistaken for conditions related to aging. And even when friends or family members recognize signs of addiction, they often discount the need for intervention or treatment. With an estimated three million older Americans struggling with alcohol and drug misuse and abuse, Aging and Addiction is a much-needed resource.

The authors, both experts in the field of addiction treatment and intervention, provide a respectful, definitive guide for recognizing and addressing substance abuse among older adults.
