This book investigates the psychological changes that take place after Christian conversion in chronic heroin-addicted individuals attending a religious programme. Drawing on the data collected in the programme, the author throws light upon questions regarding drug addiction and rehabilitation, religion and healing, and religious conversion in a Christian context. This is a practical book written in a concise yet scholarly fashion, and it is suitable for religious organization, social welfare/services policy maker, front-line helping professionals, and social work/psychology students in general.
