The BookStand: Adding Fire to the Fuel: Challenging Shame and the Stigma of Alcoholism

Recovery is the subject of countless books. The BookStand includes a short synopsis of interesting titles submitted by authors around the country.

Adding Fire to the Fuel: Challenging Shame and the Stigma of Alcoholism (Scott Stevens, Booktango, 2015). The stigmas of alcohol use disorders, treatment and recovery keeps the discussion of what alcohol does to you behind the wishful chatter about what it does for you. This book examines how families and communities feed public and self-stigma, even when it holds them back; how stigma is a barrier to many wanting help; how to stay sober in a pro-alcohol world; and how panonymous alcoholics reduce stigma as no others can. www.alcohologist.com
