The challenge of getting yourself or someone you love into recovery can be daunting. Family and friends are often confused about how to approach the addict and a professional intervention is not something everyone can afford. Kathy L., the 12-step recovery columnist for Bellaonline, one of the largest sites for women on the Web, explains the concept of intervention - the critical waking up point when the addict accepts that addiction has taken over his life. She offers stories of real people - drug addicts, alcoholics, gambling, sex, and food addicts, and the friends and family who want to help them.
This is a book for anyone who struggles with addiction or has a friend or loved one who is addicted. These stories offer a measure of faith and hope that life outside of addiction is possible.
