With this book and Vern Johnson's classic "I'll Quit Tomorrow", we have the best information available on interventions and how they are used successfully, in most cases, to bring help to an active alcoholic. While the authors maintain that interventions can be designed and run by non-professionals, using a licensed addiction counselor trained to facilitate interventions greatly improves chances of success. Remember, though, an intervention is only the 1st step in a long process of recovery.
