This second edition of the groundbreaking book by acclaimed interventionist and educator Debra Jay celebrates the unique and powerful role families play in successful long-term recovery from addiction. Readers receive tips, tools, and a framework for pursuing the proven path of Structured Family Recovery.
As a companion to Love First, the classic guide to family intervention, It Takes a Family delivers a proven method for families and friends to step beyond the initial intervention and reinvent their relationships as part of a family recovery team. In straightforward, compassionate language, Debra Jay offers readers a structured model that shows family members and friends how they can work together to overcome the obstacles many people with addiction face in their initial recovery. Through easy-to-follow strategies and exercises, family members learn about and address the challenges of enabling, denial, and pain while developing their communication skills and embracing the joy that comes from healthier and happier relationships.
