Just say no” just doesn't work for everyone. If you've tried to quit and failed, simply want to cut down, or wish to work toward sobriety gradually, join the many thousands of readers who have turned to this empathic, science-based resource—now thoroughly revised. A powerful alternative to abstinence-only treatments, harm reduction helps you set and meet your own goals for gaining control over alcohol and drugs. Step by step, the expert authors guide you to determine:
  • Which aspects of your habits may be harmful.
  • How to protect your safety and make informed choices.
  • What changes you would like to make.
  • How to put your intentions into action.
  • When it's time to seek help—and where to turn.
Updated to reflect a decade's worth of research, the fully revised second edition is even more practical. It features additional vivid stories and concrete examples, engaging graphics, new worksheets (which you can download and print for repeated use), “Self-Reflection” boxes, and more.
