Do you know someone who has an addiction?

Are you worried sick about their health and life?

There is good news. There is a solution.

My Addicted Child lays out a path of family-based treatment that works.

Larry Fritzlan LMFT and Avis Rumney LMFT know what works. In the words of the Clinical Director of a nationally known residential treatment program: "For those who follow Larry's] discharge recommendations, including ongoing family treatment, the success rate approaches 100%. For those who don't follow our recommendations, the success rate approaches zero."

Fritzlan and Rumney describe a treatment approach that can lead not only to sobriety for the addict, but to the addict recouping lost development, and to both the addict and family members becoming healthy individuals who can function together, as a healthy family and in the world.

Everything you need to get started is in this book. You, as a concerned parent, hold the key. You can begin today.
