This book details a structured, research-based approach to working with the significant others of substance abusers. The approach, called 'Unilateral Family Therapy', offers partners and family members hope not only of improving their own mental health, but also teaches how to restructure their relationship to the substance abuser in ways which could enhance the substance abuser's motivation to change and lead him or her to treatment.
