Stephanie Brown, PhD, Director, Addictions Institute, Menlo Park, CA: Codirector, Family Recovery Project, Mental Research Institute, Palo Alto, CA Virginia Lewis, PhD, Senior Research Fellow and Codirector, Family Recovery Project, Mental Research Institute Most treatments for alcoholism have focused on abstinence as their final goal and emphasize brief interventions with the addicted individual. But family relationships change dramatically when the alcoholic stops drinking--in fact, stress, turmoil, and uncertainty are the norm. This volume details how to help families regroup after abstinence, ride out periods of emotional upheaval, and find their way to establishing a more stable, yet flexible, family system. Using a compelling case-study format to illustrate the process of change, the book presents the moving personal experiences of families at different stages of the recovery process. Expanding the therapist's role to include psychoeducation and supportive counseling, the authors provide pointers for assessment at key stages of recovery and guide clinicians through bringing about lasting change.
