'[The authors] present a well-developed model of alcoholism recovery, refined through their many years of clinical experience with alcoholic families and adult children of alcoholics, and they illustrate its implications for therapeutic strategies with a rich variety of case histories ... This very careful and comprehensive exposition of the developmental model of recovery and its application to clinical situations should be useful and instructive for therapists and clinical students.' - Addiction 'Well organized and clearly written ...The strength of this book lies in the authors' stating early and often their biases and beliefs regarding alcoholism and the path of family recovery.' - Journal of Family Psychotherapy
