1 - 2 weeks availability


Early in the 1960s, Dr. Vernon E. Johnson and other community leaders organized the Johnson Institute to educate the public about one of the most widespread diseases in our culture--chemical dependence. In the book "Intervention: How to Help Someone Who Doesn't Want Help," Dr. Johnson describes a process of chemically dependent people to accept help. In terms that anyone can understand, this book teaches concerned people how to help and how to do it right. Dr. Johnson shows how chemical dependence affects those around the sick person--spouses, children, neighbors, co-workers. He also points out that intervention is not a clinical process, but a personal one that brings families back together.
