He is also the author of a dozen books on personal growth and has led personal empowerment workshops. The successful principles that evolved from his seminars are the foundations of his revolutionary program at Passages. He also wrote, produced and directed the feature film, Goin' Home. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

10 years down the line as a parent and I find this a very helpful read. Anyone involved in drug addiction,or any other addiction, as a user or parent, or as a professional should read this book. At the very least it will form a significant part of your informed education. The only thing I am left wondering is how to get together so many sympathetic and knowledgeable specialists without the need for very rich patients/parents (in the UK). Never the less, that in itself does not mean that the information and methods given are not very effective. The 'cure' is based on an understanding of the addiction condition. In the meantime I will continue to both look for these individuals, and further improve my education for the sake of myself and my daughter.

Got this book from the library, glad I did three quarters of this book is about passages which is something this book promotes. Ironic how its mainly about passages addiction centre in California. Recovering from substance abuse is very difficult, speaking from my own experience, there are other books out there which are much better. There are places out there which can help you too. Just search on google.

I have been looking for a good book to give my alcohol dependent (120units a week) ex partner to get into some kind of recovery. Despite what I heard about this Passages rehab place - was not impressed. Far too much of this book - 70 pages, maybe more - devoted to the story of the authors son getting off his addictions. The main useful points were that alcoholism is not a disease (I think some people know this) as the book says - to stigmatise it as such just makes it harder for people to quit (cos they have a negative label - so easier to just drink cos thats what they are - alcoholic). That dependency is usually caused by emotional pain (unless medical reasons such as bodily imbalances) and that's nothing new - and that spiritual beliefs help to fill the loveless void inside - and that there are 4 things that need attention before addiction can be kicked 1) unresolved issues from the past 2) current difficulties that are not being handled well 3) chemical depndency - i.e. the drug itself and any medical issues like low thyroid, hyppoglycaemis, inadequate B1 vitamins - these cause anxiety and get used up fast by in drinking and 4)a conflict between one's beliefs and what is actually happening - i.e. i cant trust people (actually alot of people are trustworthy!), these need to be explored and integrated to a more enhancing and accurate life philosophy. There you have it. An interesting read but not a life changer.
