    Format Book: 
    Intervention specialist Debra Jay challenges the belief that addicts can't be helped until they "hit bottom". She offers a bold new approach that provides a practical and spiritual lifeline to families struggling with alcohol or drug abuse. Weaving together philosophical and religious thought, new brain science, and poignant real-life family stories, she offers comfort, hope, and help to anyone affected by a family member's addiction.
