In the course of his work as a recovery advocate and ambassador with Hazelden Foundation, Moyers has talked with thousands of alcoholics, addicts, and their families and has been a lifeline in helping them get the treatment they need. 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 following steps recognizing when someone needs help finding a quality treatment program navigating the treatment process and establishing a support system after treatment.
