Overview

How many times a day does this following scenario play out in families across America? A mother or father finds evidence that their child is using drugs. They're in shock. They weren't expecting it to happen to them. What did all those public service announcements and anti-drug messages say they should do now? It's all kind of vague. They're not exactly sure. They need fast answers from the experts. That's exactly what they will get from Sober Coaching your Teen.

This is a no nonsense workbook for teaching parents how to manage a drug crisis. It is a quick information retrieval system and educational tool that instructs parents and caregivers exactly where to go and what to do in a crisis concerning drugs. It is not a prevention book. It is not a parenting book. It is not a lecture on what they should-have-done-when-their-child-was-young book. Rather than alienate the parent/caregiver through admonishment on a lack of communication skills or hints of inadequate parenting, the Marshall's book makes the parent an immediate ally of the treatment professional. The principles behind the Teaching-Family Model draws them into the treatment plan as a facilitator of the solution—not the cause of the problem.

Perfect for families in crisis, parental education programs, and parent support groups, this manual is an easy-to-use, quick information retrieval system that tells parents and caregivers exactly where to go and what to do in a crisis concerning drugs. The companion book for After Care or Parental Support is the "Facilitator Guide"

The authors deal with teenage drug addiction and frantic parents all the time, Ms. Marshall as a consultant and Certified Counselor and Dr. Marshall as a psychologist in private practice. Because of the lack of accurate information available to parents, caregivers, and professionals regarding drug abusing youth, the authors perceived a need for a “parent friendly” response manual consistent with a Teaching-Family Model approach that stresses responsibility on the part of the adolescent and teaches the parent/caregiver to be an active participant in the solution.

The worksheets and handouts are particularly helpful and will guide a parent through all actions that need to be taken.
Dealing with oppositional behavior
Distinguishing abuse from addiction
Making consequences work for you
Crisis management resources
Stages of addiction and parental reaction
Intervention guidelines
Parent as recovery coach
Choosing a treatment center
Community support options
23 handouts and worksheets

The companion book for beginning parental support groups is the Sober coaching Facilitator Guide.
