"A sophisticated, insightful, well-documented view of the philosophy and practice that are at the heart of the LifeRing approach. This book offers a perspective on recovery that can motivate change in clinicians and researchers as well as among individuals struggling to find their sober selves."
—Carlo DiClemente, Ph.D., professor and chair, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland, Baltimore, and author, Addiction and Change

"With impressive analytical clarity and therapeutic generosity, Nicolaus presents a well-argued brief for understanding the complexities of addiction treatment and accepting the full range of diverse paths to recovery. . . . [Anyone] wanting insight and balance on a vitally important public health issue will appreciate the author's lively and respectful presentation."
—Judith Herman, M.D., author, Trauma and Recovery

"In the words of our president, 'it's time for a change,' and nowhere is this more evident than in the field of addiction treatment. Nicolaus has written a wonderful book that presents LifeRing, a new model for self-help groups. A model based on empathy, scientific evidence, and giving people the power to make their own choices about treatment options. Indeed, change has come."
—Joseph R. Volpicelli, M.D., Ph.D., executive director, Institute of Addiction Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and coauthor, Recovery Options: The Complete Guide

"Powerful, engaging, and scientific. Marty Nicolaus shows that the sober self emerges by focusing on a person's strength, intelligence, supportive relationships, and the ability to ask, 'what works?'"
—Charlotte Sophia Kasl, author, Many Roads, One Journey: Moving Beyond the 12 Steps

"Finally, a respectful approach to persons caught in addiction. Nicolaus has given us another option in the heroic battle people fight to regain the wholeness that addiction compromises."
—The Rev. Linda Mercadante, Ph.D., Straker Professor of Historical Theology, The Methodist Theological School in Ohio, and author, Victims and Sinners
