Millions of viewers have watched Dr. Drew conduct professional interventions with celebrities who are struggling with addictions. But we can’t all afford a professional intervention. The Intervention Book offers real-life stories and step-by-step advice for intervening in a loved one’s life.

In The Intervention Book, Kathy L., the 12-step recovery columnist for BellaOnline, one of the largest sites for women on the web, offers a comprehensive guide to understanding and staging interventions. She begins by explaining the concept of intervention--the critical waking up point when the addict accepts that addiction has taken over his life. She walks readers through the different types of interventions, and offers advice from professional counselors and family members who have used interventions successfully.

The Intervention Book includes stories of real people, more than twenty first-hand accounts from recovering addicts and alcoholics, along with their friends and families who have been through interventions and started recovery.

For anyone who has a friend or loved one struggling with an addiction, this book offers faith and hope of a life in recovery.
