Sheridan, CA Clinical Social Worker Releases Book About Overcoming Alcoholism and Drug Addiction
Alcoholism, like other forms of addiction, is a complex disease, but treatment does not have to be complicated. The stigma/shame of the disease comes from the behaviors developed from the disease. These behaviors must be addressed and changed using a therapy program. Sobriety is more than abstinence and relapse prevention. Family members are severely emotionally and mentally injured and need as much treatment as the alcoholic/addict so they can become healthy persons.
A clinical social worker, author Alice M. Lebron has dedicated her career to finding and developing information to help individuals suffering from alcoholism/addiction, as well people directly affected by the disease-their families.
The author believes that "recovery enables a person to become the person they were born to become," and through this book, she aims to guide you and your family down the path of change and healing, which she has been doing for more than forty years.
