"This is an interesting, well-documented, and well-written account of an innovative program designed to deal with a serious and often intractable social and psychological problem. The authors are to be commended for the program's innovations and for the careful, data-based evaluation that is presented in the book....I was particularly impressed with the chapter on self-efficacy and the measure for abstinence self-efficacy that the authors developed specifically for the group of women involved in the intervention program."-James E.
