A Radically New Approach To Problem Drinking
Scott D. Miller & Insoo Kim Berg
A new approach to problem drinking that focuses not on the past or the present but on the future. The authors help readers to imagine a future where drinking is not a problem and to specify small, concrete, obtainable goals that will make that future a reality.
Neither the humiliation of "hitting bottom" nor a lifetime commitment to AA is necessary to make this approach work. Instead the individual learns to recognize exceptions (times when drinking is not a problem), catch himself "doing things right," handle setbacks, and revise the "miracle picture" when things aren't working. Highly practical, The Miracle Method is a radically new and effective approach to problem drinking.
