Today's top addiction consultants guide families through a loved one's addiction.
As countless families can attest, addiction is a disease that destroys families, not just individuals. Secrecy, depression, anger and confusion are hallmark traits of addicted families. Addiction wrecks the family, home life, consumes the family's financial resources, and depletes the family's emotional reserves.
Now, having thousands of families confront addiction, two of that nation's leading interventionists, Robert Poznanovich and Andrew T Wainwright, have created a survival guide for families. With compelling case histories and real-life scenarios, the authors set forth a practical course of action for families to break free from the grip of addiction, a process that culminates with an intervention for the addict. The process liberates and forever changes the family. Even if the addict refuses treatment, truth about addiction has been spoken during the intervention and the family is free to move ahead with or without the addict.
