Overview

Read Candy Finnigan's posts on the Penguin Blog.

From a nationally recognized addiction specialist featured on the A&E series Intervention, a comprehensive and compassionate guide to confronting a loved one with an addiction.

What do you do when someone you care about is caught in the downward spiral of addiction? The goal of an intervention is to get the person who is addicted to alcohol, to drugs, to gambling, to sex, to what have you to seek treatment-to seek treatment today. And it is remarkably effective: over 80 percent of people faced with an intervention agree to get help. In When Enough Is Enough, Candy Finnigan offers support, advice, and hope to people who care about someone with an addiction. She acknowledges that although intervention is a powerful tool, it is a complicated process-one that absolutely must be done right.

This kind of confrontation must be highly structured, and Finnigan-a veteran of hundreds of interventions-provides a frank but sympathetic guide to preparing for and staging an intervention. By talking readers through the personal, medical, psychiatric, financial, and legal issues involved, she turns what seems like a chaotic and overwhelming task into a manageable and empowering experience.

Meet the Author

Ms. Finnigan is a nationally recognized addiction specialist. She received her Certification in Chemical Dependency from UCLA and did her internship at Cedars-Sinai Hospital where she worked in Addiction Services. She was certified in Sex Addiction and Codependency at The Meadows. She received her intervention training from the man who developed the process, Dr. Vern Johnson. "Intervention is a relatively new concept," she explained. "It's only been in use about 40 years. I feel extremely fortunate to have been personally trained by Dr. Johnson." She has been affiliated as an interventionist with the Betty Ford Center, Sierra Tucson, The Meadows, Cottonwood de Tucson, New Seasons Behavioral Health Center, Promises West and Malibu, Vista Taos, Hazeldon, Talbots, Caron, and many other treatment centers.



Candy has been involved in all areas of recovery for over 17 years. Not only as an interventionist, but also in relapse prevention, and family and individual counseling. Additionally, she has extensive experience in assessment, placement, and aftercare treatment. She has been a group facilitator for many years, with both adult and adolescent clients.



She herself has been in recovery for over 20 years. "I was inspired to go into this work because I saw that as a recovering woman, I might be able to connect with suffering people in a way that others couldn't" she says. "It's not just my work, it's my life."



Ms. Finnigan has been married for 37 years. She and her husband Mike have two grown children; son, Kelly, and daughter, Bridget.



Candy and her brother-in-law Sean Finnigan are proud to announce their affiliation with Trident Media. Because of the tireless efforts of agent Eileen Cope, they recently signed a book deal with the Penguin Group imprint, Avery. The new book, When Enough is Enough: A Tell-It-Like-It-Is Guide To Successful Intervention, will be released on April 8, 2008. Candy is still very honored to be a part of A&E's docudrama Intervention which is now in its fourth season.
