This book was written by Dr. Alan Willoughby.....NOT Teena! Dr. Willoughby directed an alcohol recovery program and was the chairman of the Psychology Department at the University of Rhode Island. This book was used as a text book for an alcohol course he created and taught. This book was ahead of the times and is relevant even today. Not all alcoholics are homeless, jobless, etc. So many alcohol troubled people function without anyone except close family aware. This book does an excellent job helping the reader to understand that the disease of alcohol afflicts everyday people who too often are unaware that they are heading in a dangerous direction. This book will open your eyes to the disease for understanding as well as helping you to help another. I highly recommend this book and suggest you highlight points throughout. There will be many 'aha' moments for the reader!
