About the Book

If alcohol is causing you problems, then alcohol is the problem. This book is a comprehensive volume on alcoholism and its causes, prevention, treatment, recovery, and long-term maintenance of the disease for the alcoholic who still suffers and his or her family. The Alcoholism Handbook provides you with the tools needed, a step-by-step process for treatment, recovery, and a positive-living lifestyle change that will heal alcoholics and their families. There are only two requirements to stop drinking: willingness to learn something new and a desire to stop drinking. If an alcoholic possesses willingness and desire, then by the grace of God, a miracle can be achieved. Most every alcoholic can become one of those miracles if he or she wants to. This book is written for the alcoholic who still suffers. The Alcoholism Handbook gives you an overview of alcohol addiction and covers alcoholism in the family and at the workplace. It provides testimonials and case histories of the incomprehensible demoralization of the disease. The charts provided for nutrition and vitamin supplements can be referenced in the path back to health from the disease. Lastly, The Alcoholism Handbook provides a step-by-step process to achieve a positive-living lifestyle change for the alcoholic and his or her family. The Alcoholism Handbook is also written for all professionals, the legal profession, medical personnel, law enforcement, judges, social workers, psychologists, treatment centers, counselors, clergy, physicians, and anyone indirectly affected by the consequences of alcohol. It is also written for family members who are directly affected by alcohol’s consequences.

About the Author

The Alcoholism Handbook is the culmination of my forty-five years of personal and professional experience dealing with the alcoholic, alcohol in the family, and alcohol in the workplace. I have specialized in counseling alcoholics for the past twenty-seven years, mentoring, counseling, and talking with alcoholics from every walk of life. I have dealt with men, women, and children as well as the professional person, working person, housewife, student, and homeless person, because alcoholism does not discriminate. I have studied the disease of alcoholism, including its treatment, recovery, and long-term maintenance. I present to you, the reader, the best knowledge I have attained over those years. I’m a graduate of Fresno State University, with a BA in psychology, and I have a forty-two-year career as a mid-level manager and executive analyst for a large governmental agency. I have twenty-seven years of specialized experience in counseling alcoholics. I reside in Central California (Madera), the gateway to Yosemite National Park near Fresno, with my wife. I have spoken at colleges, universities, and social and humanitarian agencies interested in this topic. I have traveled the country, speaking on the disease of alcoholism in many major US cities. The information here is based on my experience and in-depth medical and experimental research professionals have published. All information in this book has been obtained from the public domain and the author’s personal experience. The Alcoholism Handbook will save the life of an alcoholic and heal his or her family members.
