Mary Crocker Cook

Author Mary Crocker Cookabout this book: Welcome to My World, A Week in the Life of a Substance Abuse Counselor was written by a 25 year substance abuse treatment veteran, is a novel set in an alcohol and drug treatment center. The story line follows the staff through the week as they lead psychoeducation classes, meet with clients, address crisis, lead therapy groups, and interact with each other. This lively book was written to give people a peek into what REALLY happens in alcohol and drug rehab, and uses humor and genuine recovery program structure to both educate and entertain. The cast of characters are interesting, and honest, and lay readers will walk away with a much greater insight into the structure and power of formal addiction treatment. The staff is flawed and ethical, which are not mutually exclusive. They represent the dedication and compassion addiction counselors demonstrate with clients on a daily basis. A must read if you have ever been curious about what REALLY happens in treatment!
