    The Best Book I've read on this subject

    All family members, all friends and all professional counsellors, who deal with alcoholism and addiction, must read this book. Some of it is painful to read, but it's all so true. I'm buying other copies to share with friends. I need their support.

    Love First: A New Approach to Intervention for Alcoholism & Drug Addiction

    I am truly excited about the new book Love First. Jeff and Debra Jay have described so eloquently addictive disease within the family and more importantly, what a family can do about it. Most alcoholics and addicts are not able to access the treatment they need. Families and loved ones who read this new look at intervention will find the keys to begin the process of recovery.'
