No More Letting Go

The Spirituality of Taking Action Against Alcoholism and Drug Addiction

About the Course:

Over the last twenty years, the conventional wisdom offered to an addict’s loved ones has been detachment—that addicts can’t be helped until they “hit bottom”. Now intervention specialist Debra Jay challenges this belief and offers a bold new approach that provides a practical and spiritual lifeline to families struggling with alcohol or drug abuse. Jay contends that addiction is everybody’s business—not just the addict’s—and addiction doesn’t have the right to trump the welfare of the family. 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 members addiction.
