Seven Tools to Beat Addiction.
Stanton Peele, Ph.D., J.D., Three Rivers Press (212-940-7866), $14
This softcover book with a July 2004 publication date challenges 12-Step program assumptions about the inevitable need for a lifetime commitment to abstinence and a support group. The internationally recognized Peele presents concepts supported with interactive exercises that are designed to help addicts overcome destructive habits without entering formal treatment. According to the author, the seven building blocks for a balanced and responsible life are values, motivation, rewards, resources, support, maturity and higher goals.
