Customer Reviews

This book has the basis information a person needs to quit their addiction.
Clary
I don't think it's the best choice for someone who has been in and out of facilities and rehabs because this will just be a repeat of everything you've already heard.

Bought it for my grown son...along with AA, prof. treatment, the workbook has been a good support for him.

Format: Paperback
The workbook allows one to view his/her compulsion to drink and/or use drugs from multiple perspectives, to better realize the consequences and to make a reasoned choice about whether or not to embrace sobriety. It then gently guides one into early recovery, giving tips and support for making important changes in life so as not to return to alcohol and/or drugs. Fanning writes in short, clear sentences so that the book is very easy to understand, and shows great compassion for those who are burdened by the terrible compulsion that is addiction.

This is a good 101 basic text. I don't think it's the best choice for someone who has been in and out of facilities and rehabs because this will just be a repeat of everything you've already heard. So it really depends on where you are in your recovery and what type of recovery you need (AA as opposed to REBT, etc...). I would assume it's also a great resource for someone going into substance abuse counseling.

This book has the basis information a person needs to quit their addiction. Is the same basic principles that rehabilitation programs used. Except that in the rehab you have a team a people that help you and the AA/NA meetings are all day.

The steps are often redundant and drawn out, but I love the overall concepts it teaches to my clients. They have all told me that it's helped them think out their choices ahead of time so they end up making better choices in a "high-risk" situation. It even allows for the client to state what they expect to be receiving from the counselor - what they want treatment to look like.
