Review quote

"This is the most important new resource for the millions of families struggling with drug and alcohol problems, and all the hopelessness and helplessness that goes with it. First, it provides reason for hope based on science, not conventional wisdom. Second, it provides a comprehensive, compassionate, and understandable plan, not a recipe for a quick fix. And third, it reaffirms that applying the family's natural kindness and positive reinforcement, rather than withholding it, is what makes change possible."--Tom Hedrick "Founding Member, The Partnership at Drugfree.org "
