Paul Schulte, the author of the book, Paths to Recovery for Gay and Bisexual Drug Addicts has extensive experience in working with gay and bisexual men. His work began in 2005 while a student at West Coast University‘s drug and alcohol counseling program. Since then, he has worked with several gay, bisexual, and straight men who are recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. His work has spanned 3 continents. Throughout, Paul Schulte, helps the reader understand the complexities, difficult and subhuman experiences often encountered by gay and bisexual men – all of which further complicate their self-image, decisions, and ability to heal. Some of the topics and issues discussed may be ones some mental health and helping professionals are aware of; yet, others may not. For this reason and due to the comprehensive description of the multiple layers of hurt and pain gay and bisexual men sometimes encounter as part of their recovery, the book presented has much to offer professionals counseling, treating, or serving this group of individuals.
