Just say no" just doesn't work for everyone. Presenting a powerful alternate to abstinence-only addictions treatments, this empathic, nonjudgmental resource has already helped thousands set and meet their own goals for gaining control over alcohol and drugs. The science of harm reduction is translated into step-by-step strategies that readers can use to figure out which aspects of their habits may be harmful, what they would like to change, and how to put their intentions into action. Updated to reflect a decade's worth of research, the fully revised second edition is even more practical and reader friendly. It features additional concrete examples, engaging graphics, new worksheets (which purchasers can download and print for repeated use), "Self-Reflection" boxes, and more.
