I have been treating alcoholics and addicts for over 20 years. These exercises give my patients hope and strength to stay clean and sober. The book is so attractive that my patients want their treatment peers to sign them, then they take them home and re-read the material over and over again. This reinforces what they learned in treatment and keeps them working a program. Finally a group of exercies I can trust and believe in.
