As the survivor of multiple relapses and near-fatal experiences with his addiction to alcohol and other drugs, William Cope Moyers knows what it’s like to desperately need, but not know how to find, a good treatment program.

Drawing from both his own journey and the experiences of those he’s helped, Moyers applies his passion and trademark down-to-earth, style to lead readers through the process ofrecognizing when someone needs help,finding a quality treatment program,navigating the treatment process, and establishing a support system after treatment.
