Item Description...

Today's top addiction consultants guide families devastated by 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's home life, consumes the family's financial resources, and depletes the family's emotional reserves. Now, having helped thousands of families confront addiction, two of the 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 ofaction 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.

More About Andrew T. Wainwright & Robert Poznanovich

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Andrew founded AiR in 2002 and over the last decade he has built it into the leader of the modern intervention and crisis consulting industry. Andrew is a gifted interventionist trained by Dr. James Fearing, the direct successor of Dr. Vernon Johnson, creator of the Johnson Model of Intervention. With AiR Andrew has broadened the pioneering intervention approach of Dr. Johnson and Dr. Fearing to meet the expanding needs of families and patients across the behavioral health spectrum. The AiR Model of Intervention is now the standard of intervention practice today. Andrew and Dr. Savage, AiR's Clinical Director, shared a vision that the Johnson Model of Intervention could be expanded to address a wider variety of behavioral health needs. To that end they created the AiR Model of Behavioral Health Crisis Management, the internationally accepted standard for all forms of behavioral health intervention in the world today. Andrew and Tom have spent the last decade training new clinicians in the AiR Model and redefining the role of intervention in the continuum of behavioral healthcare, education and advocacy. AiR, with Andrew as its guide, is constantly evolving, creating new services and solutions where none were previously available out of a genuine desire to be the most effective resource for anyone, anywhere who is faced with the burdens associated with chemical dependency, mental illness and eating disorders. Andrew has the knowledge, the experience and the team to make that desire a reality. In addition to over fifteen years of hands-on experience helping families struggling with addiction and mental illness, Andrew sought help for his own alcoholism and drug addiction at the Hazelden Foundation in Minnesota in 1995. Andrew is intimately acquainted with the systems of addiction and recovery. He has lived through them himself and he has helped thousands of other families recover. His work in this field has given him a wealth of experience, compassion and personal insight. Andrew is the author of It's not Okay to be a Cannibal-How to Stop Addiction from Eating Your Family Alive, published by the Hazelden Foundation. This resource is widely regarded as the single best book on confronting addiction available to families today. He has trained many of the best known interventionists in the world. Today his volume of experience and insight has made him a frequent guest on CNN's American Morning.

Exceptional   Oct 31, 2007
This book helped my family with having a loved one in our family with addiction. Extremely informative and helpful with suggestions. Options were given that were not coming easily into the family that had been affected deeply. Thanks. Susan
Excellent for the Addicted and the Family Affected  May 12, 2007
A must read for anyone dealing with addiction in their family. Gives you a much clearer perspective.
This is a must-read for EVERY parent  Apr 17, 2007
As a father of 5 children I want to encourage all parents with young children (and those who are still in the planning stage) to read this book. Yes, the book is all about addictions and actually says very little about parenting, per se. But here's what it DOES describe: the seamy underside of life no one wants to talk about until it's (sometimes) too late. I hope none of my children (and none of yours) ever has to go through addictions and withdrawal, but addictions are real. You'd have to live under a rock not to recognize it's a fact of life today.

But it doesn't have to be a fact of YOUR life. And that's the beauty part of this book. Although I'm certain the authors didn't set out to shock readers into recognizing the importance of being an involved parent, it does achieve this better than any other parenting book I've ever read.

In about 150 pages we parents get to see what happens when we overly coddle, forget to establish firm boundaries and lack the personal discipline to discipline. We are treated to the cold, hard outcome when parents replace tough love (the authors call it "clarity") with pacifism. Pacifistic parenting is the kind that says things like, "Here's some money son, go entertain yourself...I'm busy working making money to pay for the stuff we all `need.'" Eventually the kid gets the message and finds something to replace the relationship and structure they're supposed to get from their parents, putting them on a collision course for being a character in this book.

There is a price to pay (sooner or later) and this book gives graphic detail (even from the authors' own lives) of the hell we'll all pay if we continue failing to step up. And trust me; the cost of fixing things when children are young is far cheaper than the cost later on.
A Must if You Have An Active Addict in Your Life  Mar 16, 2007
This book provided a whole lot of answers to questions I'd had about addiction and the best way to deal with an addict. I heartily recommend it to anyone seeking answers.
Parents Need What This Book Offers  Feb 14, 2007

I am the program chair for and one of my roles to review books on addictions and select one as our book of the quarter.

I have selected this book for the second quarter of 2007. It is one of the very best books I have read that communicates to families in a manner that is both direct, loving and honest. I felt like I was in my living room visiting with the author's face to face.

The information presented goes beyond education; it makes an ingenious transition which pierces the wall of denial, we as families, must conquer before progress for our loved one is possible.
