Why another book on addiction? There are many books about intervention, treatment, and personal stories, but none on what is proven to work for successful recovery. Physicians and pilots have very high first time recovery rates – the only groups that do so.

This book describes how to use the concepts underlying these two programs to improve recovery rates for other addicts and alcoholics.

•The fundamental idea is for the family to exert leverage on their loved one to remain in treatment and follow post-treatment recommendations, just as medical boards do for physicians and airlines do for pilots.

The goal is to maintain external pressure until the addict can internalize the desire to recover.

Parents, in particular, play an important role in supporting the recovery process as “positive enablers” – a new and important concept in recovery from alcohol and drug addiction. Leverage First is a guide for families on implementing this new concept, based on over ten years experience using the pilot/physician model with out client families.

Three Facts to Know
•The most common outcome of treatment is relapse.
•Addiction is the only area of medicine where physicians receive different (and better) treatment than the general population.
•It takes much longer than 28 days to recover from addiction.
Learn how the programs for pilots and physicians are successful – achieving proven success rates in excess of 90% two years after treatment.

Leverage First is the initial mini-e-book on recovery from addiction, using the medical board and airline programs as models for other groups.

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 29th-31st,  2021.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's just opening up!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed during The Plague.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, June 1st, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Hakima in QA, and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
