Disability Identity and Allyship in Reha. Luigi Zoja is concerned in his book with drug addiction in the widest sense, including alcoholism. Every substance which causes mental alterations can be viewed as a drug and can make one addicted, be it a hard or a soft drug, be it hashish, LSDor heroin, be it alcohol or psychoactive substances. The fantasy of control almost always exists in young drug users, but is for the most part only possible within the cultural context of certain primitive societies).

Whether you agree with Zoja's premise or not this is an awesome book which will push the boundaries of some addiction sciences basic assumptions. This book is very relevant to current addiction theory and beyond. The book is written for anyone who enjoys reading a great synthesizer of Jungian thought, and a multidisciplinary approach to a topic. There are very few writers who can make me not to want to put a book down, Dr. Zoja is one of them. I first read Dr. Zoja's book on ethics and psychotherapy when I was a student at a training program at the Jungian institute in Chicago. It was as equally fantastic as the book on addiction. I intend on becoming a devoted Zoja-phile as a result of my enjoyment of his work, and hope to see more published by him in the near future.

Dr. Zoja;s book brings an insight into substance abuse missing from the more standard descriptions. Understanding the call of the drug culture to the otherwise disenfranchised and the promise of a deeper reality to those dissatisfied with everyday life is an insight that has served me well since its first publication. Full of wisdom and worth every minute spent.

Interesting theory, but dense language, dirth of examples, unsubstantiated opinions, exclusively male nouns & pronouns & no discussion of women's ritual/initiatory experiences -- present even without a psycho-anthropologist/Jungian analyst acknowledgement -- make it hard to evaluate.

I bought this book because I love Jungian psychology. I have belonged to my local JungHaus for years. I was interested in the notion of the search for initiation and addiction. The concepts in the book are excellent, but the style of writing is much too dense. This could reflect the fact that the original text was written in Italian.
