Quotes & Awards

  • “[Beyond Addiction’s] gentle, optimistic, and explanatory approach offers hope by giving family members outlets besides fighting, feeling stress, or idly waiting for motivation to happen. The book helpfully offers reminders that although no one can make another person change, there is much that can be done to make change seem appealing and possible.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • Objectively written and conveyed with congenial authority, the book offers collective hope to families of substance abusers. . . . Essential. Kirkus
