Product Description

Substance addictions present a unique set of challenges for pastoral care. In Addiction and Pastoral Care Sonia Waters weaves together personal stories, research, and theological reflection to offer helpful tools for ministers, counselors, chaplains, and anyone else called to care pastorally for those struggling with addiction.

Waters uses the story of the Gerasene demoniac in Mark’s Gospel to reframe addiction as a "soul-sickness" that arises from a legion of individual and social vulnerabilities. She includes pastoral reflections on oppression, the War on Drugs, trauma, guilt, discipleship, and identity. The final chapters focus on practical-care skills that address the challenges of recovery, especially ambivalence and resistance to change.

Editorial Reviews

Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore
—Vanderbilt University
"Simply put, this is the best book out there for any health professional or individual who wants to understand the spiritual and political complexities of addiction."

Carrie Doehring
—Iliff School of Theology, Denver
"Given the prevalence of struggles with addictive substances among persons and families, religious leaders and chaplains will find Waters’s book extraordinarily helpful in understanding the neurological, medical, relational, cultural, and theological dimensions of substance use disorders."
