Stanton Peele has been investigating, thinking, and writing about addiction since 1969. His first bombshell book, Love and Addiction, appeared in 1975. Its experiential and environmental approach to addiction revolutionized thinking on the subject by indicating that addiction is not limited to narcotics, or to drugs at all, and that addiction is a pattern of behavior and experience which is best understood by examining an individual's relationship with his/her world. This is a distinctly nonmedical approach. It views addiction as a general pattern of behavior that nearly everyone experiences in varying degrees at one time or another.
The Recovery and Monitoring Program of NJ
The Recovery and Monitoring Program (RAMP) was started in January 2003 and is designed to encourage health professionals to seek a recovery program before their impairment harms a patient or damages their careers through a disciplinary action. Housed in the Institute for Nursing, it is one of the services available to nurses in New Jersey experiencing problems with impaired practice. The New Jersey State Board of Nursing now refers nurses who qualify to the RAMP program for monitoring as an alternative to disciplinary action. Even nurses who must be disciplined benefit from these services.. RAMP is a comprehensive, structured plan for recovery and monitoring that promotes public protection, safe practice and health. It is a statistically sound method for dealing with impaired practice.
