Dare to Confront

Bob Wright, Author, Wright, Author, Deborah George Wright, With Mastermedia Publishing Company $17.95 (209p) ISBN 978-0-942361-21-6
Wright, a recovering alcoholic, and his wife, who head their own alcohol and drug treamtent center in Sun Valley, Idaho, address their book to concerned family, friends and associates of chemically dependent people. This comprehensive, step-by-step manual describes how nonprofessionals can prepare and conduct effective group intervention as a means of arresting chemical addiction. Participants, under the aegis of a professional, are guided to present evidence and personal feelings in an effort to help the addict acknowledge that a serious problem and need for help exist and to uncover underlying reasons for the abuse. The confrontation, we're shown, should conclude with an ultimatum requiring the subject to enter into treatment. 25,000 first printing; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates; author tour.
