Publisher's Summary

Beyond Addiction eschews the theatrics of interventions and tough love to show family and friends how they can use kindness, positive reinforcement, and motivational and behavioral strategies to help their loved ones change. Drawing on forty collective years of research and decades of clinical experience, the authors present the best practical advice science has to offer.
Delivered with warmth, optimism, and humor, Beyond Addiction defines a new, empowered role for friends and family and a paradigm shift for the field. Learn how to tap the transformative power of relationships for positive change, guided by exercises and examples. Practice what really works in therapy and in everyday life, and discover many different treatment options along with tips for navigating the system. And have hope: this guide is designed not only to help someone change but to help someone want to change.

Not what I was looking for.

Would you try another book from the authors and/or Randye Kaye?


Would you be willing to try another book from the authors? Why or why not?

Yes, their research is good as well as the writing.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was good.

Any additional comments?

This book was written for families and friends of addicts, not for people dealing with addiction themselves. That fact could have been made more clear in the subtitle and description.
