Editorial Reviews

"For anyone who lives and worries about an alcoholic or drug addict." -Carol Cox Smith, author of Recovery at Work"Easily readable directions as to how family members, friends, as well as the afflicted persons themselves, can find tremendously helpful assistance and guidance" -Robert A. Liebelt, Ph.D., M.D., Medical Director, Sister Ignatia Hall and the Robert H. Smith, M.D. (Dr. Bob) Interim Care Center"I have spent twenty-five years working with drug addicts, alcoholigcs, and ex-convicts, and I have a doctorate degree in clinical psychology. No amount of experience or education prepared me for my closest relative going back into addiction. This book is a step-by-step guide on how to detach with love and how to find sanity while you're trying to help your loved one." -Teri Lynch DeLane, Ph.D., director of Choices Program for Incarcerated Men and Women
