As a companion to Love First, the classic guide to family intervention, It Takes a Family delivers a proven method for families and friends to step beyond the initial intervention and reinvent their relationships as part of a family recovery team. In straightforward, compassionate language, Debra Jay offers readers a structured model that shows family members and friends how they can work together to overcome the obstacles many people with addiction face in their initial recovery. Through easy-to-follow strategies and exercises, family members learn about and address the challenges of enabling, denial, and pain while developing their communication skills and embracing the joy that comes from healthier and happier relationships.
