Counselor and interventionist Debra Jay shows alcoholics, other addicts, and their loved ones how to work collaboratively and as individuals to take on the roles and responsibilities that support long-term sobriety Counselor and interventionist Debra Jay shows alcoholics, other addicts, and their loved ones how to work collaboratively and as individuals to take on the roles and responsibilities that support long-term sobrietyMost books on recovery from addiction focus either on the addict or the family. While most alcoholics and addicts coming out of treatment have a recovery plan, families are often left to figure things out for themselves. In It Takes a Family, Debra Jay takes a fresh approach to the recovery process by making family members and friends part of the recovery team, beginning in the early stages of sobriety.In straightforward, compassionate language, she outlines a structured model that shows family members both how to take personal responsibility and to build a circle of support to meet the obstacles common to the first year of recovery. Together, family members address the challenges of enabling, denial, and pain while developing their communication skills through practical, easy-to-follow strategies and exercises designed to create transparency and accountability. With this invaluable guide, family members work together as they reinvent their relationships without the all-consuming dysfunction of active addiction.

“Detachment” has been the standard message of most addiction literature for the last twenty years. The conventional wisdom offered to an addict’s loved ones has been to let the addict “hit bottom” before intervening. Now intervention specialist Debra Jay challenges this belief and offers a bold new approach to treating addiction that provides a practical and spiritual lifeline to families struggling with alcohol or drug abuse. In No More Letting Go, Jay argues that the traditional advice of “letting go” too often destroys both the addict and the family physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 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 a family. In short, highly accessible chapters written with warmth, understanding, and compassion, Jay weaves together philosophical and religious thought; new science on the brain function of an addict; the physical and psychological impact of addiction on family members; and poignant, real-life family stories. No More Letting Go is a powerful, informative guide that provides comfort, hope, and practical advice to anyone affected by a family member’s addiction. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This book has its roots in the authors' 16 years of direct clinical experience with almost 500 stepfamilies, as well as their own personal experience as a stepfamily. In response to the dearth of resources for stepfamilies in the therapeutic community, the Burts have created an intervention that addresses the specific concerns and challenges of the stepfamily: the Step By Step Model of Brief Therapy. This important book outlines the model and its applications. The strengths of the Step By Step Model are in its simplicity and flexibility, and in the collaborative process between client and therapist. The authors' discussion highlights the necessity of providing clients with realistic perspectives, strategies, and tools that help them to be more in control of the stepfamily process. Whether related to interactions, adjustments, or developmental stages, the Step By Step Model is designed to accommodate the many forces at work both inside and outside the therapy room. This perspective will help any clinician, regardless of specific orientation, to bring into focus therapeutic strategies that help these families move forward.
