This new and updated edition adds to the core material in the Jays' classic book- identifying enabling behaviors, building the team, writing an intervention letter, choosing a treatment center-with the most up-to-date scientific information and intervention techniques available. New chapters on psychiatric, gambling, eating, and other disorders give family members and other concerned people the knowledge and tools to face the important people in their lives who are dealing with a range of self-destructive illnesses.
