Paperback: $20.94

More > NIMBY Syndrome is not new and does not arise solely in opposition to alcohol and substance abuse treatment programs. Community resistance is often mobilized to prevent the opening or expansion of many types of health and social services facilities, including homeless shelters, group homes for the mentally ill, halfway houses for ex-offenders and health-related facilities for persons with AIDS. The opening of an alcohol and drug treatment program, regardless of modality, is often met by community resistance.

Unfortunately, even if a program ultimately prevails, the fight can be costly, not only in terms of resources, but in its effects on the clients as well.< Less

Setting up a rival camp to outwit the NIMBYs and waging war to win the media battle is a short sighted, unsustainable approach. This book analyses what makes NIMBYism tick, surveys current best practice regional economic development and posits a coherent, sustainable approach to the creation of wealth and well-being in communities.< Less
