About the Course:

America’s leading interventionist wants to share his knowledge. This book will help readers understand that:
  • Sooner or later, one way or another, alcoholism touches everyone.
  • Alcoholics are unable to self-diagnose their illness and are therefore unable to help themselves.
  • Alcoholics drink even when past experience, prudence and logic prohibit it.
  • Chemically dependent people do not get clean and sober without some form of intervention.
  • Virtually all interventions set positive changes into motion.

This course is based on the book, When They Won’t Quit: A Call to Action for Families, Friends, and Employers of Alcohol and Drug-Addicted People created by Bruce Cotter in 0.
