This book is not all about Drew Peterson. I wanted to write a book that would be an answer the question “What five books in your family library do you wish to pass on to your children and grandchildren?” Hopefully someday I will write one. In this book I will exhibit tough love and play Devil’s advocate with many monsters and monstrous events. I will present my findings and analysis of all that may threaten you and your family. As a cure for families we recommend that all of us move beyond the monstrous ego and money-oriented selfishness of “Modern Medicine,” “Modern Banking,” “Modern Justice,” “Modern King Government,” and “Modern Me.” I advocate we thread old-fashioned family values into the solutions and cures of new Smart Systems™. Our “modern” institutions need serious rehab in order to assist, not just one but, all members of today’s family with respect care and love. Today’s technology confirms our corporate motto: WE ARE ALL ONE BIG FAMILY – ENJOY IT! We have called for an annual international week of Sobriety and Serenity each January 5th through the 12th as a small pathway to change and a way to remember and heal families in pain. I apologize in advance to families covered too briefly in this book. It is impossible to express the sorrow one feels when a loved one dies or disappears. I empathize your loss. Make sure you develop your own family support treatment team that includes proper medical, recreational, dietary, work, fiscal, spiritual, psychological and physical life areas. Involve the proper professionals as you apply the family change therapies recommended in this book or online rehab. While we use and teach tough love techniques, we believe the focus of this therapy needs to be on the illness or disease of our loved ones - never against any person. We pray the recipients of tough love in this book find peace and serenity in their life. We know we can all enjoy some good belly laughs in the future as we continue to support each other and our families. We hope the weaving of cases; common sense psychology of the California Recovery Model and ‘Secrets of Rehab’ are educational, as well as, entertaining for you. Please note that this book presents only a few rehab secrets and introductory recovery techniques.
