In Intervention: How To Help Someone Who Doesn't Want Help, Dr. Vernon Johnson describes the process that has successfully motivated thousands of chemically dependent people to accept help. In simple terms, this book shows how chemical dependency affects those around the addicted person, and teaches concerned people how to help and how to do it right. Johnson shows how chemical dependence affects those around the sick person--spouses, children, neighbors, co-workers. He also points out that intervention is not a clinical process, but a personal one that brings families back together.
