A Note to Family and Friends: Pulling It All Together

  • Marc Alan Schuckit


This book was written as much to meet your needs as to reflect the problems that might be faced by the person who has alcohol and drug problems. In order for you to be able to make decisions for yourself and to help the person involved, it is important that you have as much information as possible. So, Part I gave you a general overview of what drugs are and what they can do. You need this information to determine whether the pattern of use and problems are really worth concern. Then, Chapters 4 through 10 were written to help you see how you might actually help the person you care about get evaluation and treatment.
