About the Course:
America’s leading interventionist wants to share his knowledge. This book will help readers understand that:
- Sooner or later, one way or another, alcoholism touches everyone.
- Alcoholics are unable to self-diagnose their illness and are therefore unable to help themselves.
- Alcoholics drink even when past experience, prudence and logic prohibit it.
- Chemically dependent people do not get clean and sober without some form of intervention.
- Virtually all interventions set positive changes into motion.
