Addiction is often described as a "family condition" - but families have often been left out of the recovery equation. Involved, supportive families play a critical role in the recovery process, from initiation through long-term recovery, and families provide an important reservoir of influence and support towards making lasting sobriety a reality. Through extensive work in intervention and family recovery, Debra Jay and Jeff Jay have developed highly effective, detailed Intervention and Structured Family Recovery™ processes that unlock the secrets of lasting sobriety and make them available to families. This presentation will describe how to do an intervention and how to build a recovery team, working towards the common goal of sustained recovery. There will be a book sale/signing following the presentation.
