* ""Comprehensive, illuminating, and easy to read, this book points out the diverse paths to the ultimate goal-- recovery from alcohol and other drug abuse."" ( William Cope Moyers, Vice President of Public Affairs, Hazelden Foundation) ""Finally! A no-nonsense, state-of-the-art guide that one can hand to anybody who is having trouble with drugs, alcohol, tobacco or foods of various kinds. What a gift Volpicelli and Szalavitz have given us: a stupendous, practical way to help the colleagues and loved ones in our lives who are struggling with chemical dependency.""--( Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of THE COMING PLAGUE: NEWLY EMERGING DISEASES IN A WORLD OUT OF BALANCE) ""At last a sensible, clear guide for consumers who are facing the tough choice of seeking treatment for addictive behaviors. In a field long driven by emotion and minimal scientific evidence, Volpicelli and Szalavitz impartially review the options and explain them in clear language. In addition, they take some of the hysteria out of the issues facing substance users and their loved ones by providing a coherent summary of what we really know about alcohol and other drugs. A must read. Bravo!""-- (Fred Rotgers, Assistant Chief Psychologist, Smithers Addiction Treatment and Training Center) ""Wise, accurate, responsible, accessible, and well written. I'm assigning it for my course in drug policy.""--( Mark Kleiman, Professor of Policy Studies at UCLA and author of AGAINST EXCESS: DRUG POLICY FOR RESULTS) ""Joe Volpicelli is one of the most creative research scientists and clinicians in the addiction field. With Maia Szalavitz, he has put together a highly practical and effective book describing a modern approach to the treatment of alcoholism and other addictive disorders. This approach is steeped in pragmatism and soundly based on science. It utilizes techniques that work and that have been adapted to the needs of individual patients. The writing is clear, succinct and understandable. It should be a very useful guide for patients, their families, and professionals in addressing this terrible disease.""--(Charles P. O'Brien, MD, PhD, Kenneth Appel Professor, Department of Psychiatry, VA Medical Center, President, American College of Neuropsychopharmacology)
