  1. “A fresh and greatly needed approach to helping the whole person; it fills a great gap in the existing literature.”
    --Thomas Perrin, author of I Am an Adult Who Grew Up in an Alcoholic Family
  2. “Counselors just beginning their careers or those who often must do the work of counseling — such as ministers, teachers, and nurses — will greatly appreciate the value of this book as an introduction to the field. Experienced therapists will value the creative insights of the author and her skilled blending of approaches that many have considered antagonistic, such as the two view proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous and cognitive therapy. It is a wise, flexible, and open minded guide that pulls together the contemporary knowledge about substance abuse into one source.”
    --Dr. William van Ornum
  3. “Dr. Pita crams an amazing amount of information to produce a counselor’s handbook that is both readable and comprehensive. Significantly, the recovery methods of AA and rational emotive therapy are shown to be complementary, an approach the author has used successfully in her own practice. This book is another worthy addition to Crossroad’s superb counseling series. Recommended.”
