Product description


this workbook could be invaluable to the individual who is searching for a reasoned and scientifically researched set of methods for overcoming addiction… this workbook might even be lifesaving… If you are ready for an alternative approach to overcoming addiction, this workbook could make a big difference in your life!"
- G. Alan Marlatt, PhD , Professor of Psychology, University of Washington, Director of Addictive Behaviors Research Center

"… alcohol treatment programs in the U.S. have only slowly begun to offer [alternative] treatments… the best that science has to offer for overcoming addiction is not widely known… If you are considering treatment for yourself or another, you need to be aware of these alternatives… This workbook is a good place to learn about them… Try these strategies yourself and see how they can be helpful to you."
- Reid K. Hester, PhD , Director, Research Division, Behavior Therapy Associates

"… frank and straightforward… a common sense and research-based alternative to 12-Step programs… a self-help manual with extensive detail, explanation, prudent advice… An invaluable resource."
- Mark B. Sobell, PhD , Center for Psychological Studies, Nova Southeastern University

"… intelligent approach… extraordinary touch… Dr. Horvath has created a step-by-step program to overcome addictions… I recommend this book to all professionals interested in innovative and logical steps to enlist the patient's active involvement in treatment and recovery."
- Rodrigo A. Munoz, MD , Past President, American Psychiatric Association

"… a common sense approach to a set of very difficult problems… For those who have an active curiosity about their trouble and can stay with it, what is offered here will help them understand what they are going through, broaden their understanding of the detail of where they have been, and help them change."
- Robert A. Zucker, PhD , Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Michigan

"I think this book could do the world a lot of good."
- John J. Boren, PhD , Senior Scientist, Treatment Research Branch, National Institute on Drug Abuse, Retired
