This review is from: Intervention: How to Help Someone Who Doesn't Want Help (Paperback)
This gives a good overview of alcoholism and the general technique of intervention. The author makes it quite clear that families can intervene on an alcoholic without using a professional in many cases. This is important for families who do not have the money to hire a professional. But I found that the book does not give a great deal of detailed instruction on how to carry out an intervention. I think, after having done a intervention on someone in my husband's family, the book oversimplifies the whole process. There are many issues that cropped up for us that the book did not cover. While this book is worth reading, it is not the best I've read when it comes to giving practical, detailed advice on actually doing the intervention.
