Publisher's Summary

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.

Includes:

  • Three types of interventions: formal, informal and divine
  • Advice from counselors and family members who have used interventions successfully
  • More than 20 different firsthand accounts - stories from addicts as well as family members who have staged interventions on their own
  • What happens after an intervention or when the person decides to begin recovery
  • How to recognize enabling behavior
  • How dual and poly-addiction can affect recovery

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.

Misleading Title

I was looking for detailed information on the intervention process while this book only provided an overview. I would say 95% of this book was addict’s stories which was not what I was seeking. I’ve ordered Brad Lamm’s book which I hope will provide the insight I need.
