Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1993, Vol 38(12), 1336. Reviews the book, Concerned Intervention: When Your Loved One Won't Quit Alcohol or Drugs by John and Pat O'Neill (1993). This book will be helpful to those with loved ones or co-workers who are addicted to alcohol or drugs. The O'Neills provide a step-by-step method of providing what they term concerned intervention in the lives of alcohol and drug abusers, even those who deny they have a problem or resist help. On the basis of their experience in treating chemically dependent people and families, this book offers practical methods for understanding the problem of chemical dependency, assessing treatment programs and counselors, and finding funds to adequately treat a chemically dependent person and his or her family.
