One of our longtime customers was an extraordinary gentleman named Tom Tuppenney (April 9, 1954 – April 17, 2020). A champion for anyone in need of help as well as a most empathetic, and thoughtful, instigator of life changing laughter for all those who were lucky enough to be a witness. Tom worked tirelessly for those struggling with addiction and so we feature that very topic this week.

Tom had an artificial limb that he once removed while riding a bus across the US border. He used it to hold his beverage. The beverage was held securely in place exactly where the top part of his leg would go once he got off the bus. He had me in stitches while telling the story and, as it happens, he had the customs agents in stitches as well.

We had not seen Tom in some time but the memories we can grab and examine from his many visits over the years will serve to glow in our mind's eye for a long time. We will miss him very much and regret that we only found out about him moving on a few days ago. Our thoughts are with his family. RIP Major Tom.

Grief and Addiction: Considering Loss in the Recovery Process
Julie Bates-Maves

Grief and Addiction illuminates the role of grief work in addiction counseling, encouraging counselors to be more comprehensive in their treatment and to increase empathy for what the treatment process is asking of clients.

Acknowledging that entering recovery includes a loss of coping skills, and that it requires building a new identity, this book focuses on addiction-specific grief work. Grief and Addiction integrates concepts like complicated grief, nonfinite loss, trauma, family grief response, and treatment suggestions in one place—all with a focus on the application to addiction work.

In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
Gabor Maté

Beginning with a dramatically close view of his drug addicted patients, Dr. Maté looks at his own history of compulsive behaviour.

Providing a bold synthesis of clinical experience, insight and cutting edge scientific findings, Dr. Maté sheds light on this most puzzling of human frailties. He proposes a compassionate approach to helping drug addicts and, for the many behaviour addicts among us, to addressing the void addiction is meant to fill. [More. . .]

Firewater: How Alcohol Is Killing My People (and Yours)
Harold Johnson

Drawing on his years of experience as a Crown Prosecutor in Treaty 6 territory, Harold Johnson challenges readers to change the story we tell ourselves about the drink that goes by many names—booze, hooch, spirits, sauce, and the evocative “firewater.” Confronting the harmful stereotype of the “lazy, drunken Indian,” and rejecting medical, social, and psychological explanations of the roots of alcoholism, Johnson cries out for solutions, not diagnoses, and shows how alcohol continues to kill so many.
