"A convincing new approach to intervention that puts love and respect first." Jack Canfield, coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series

"Building a team, choosing a chairperson, anticipating objections, using checklists, and rehearsing for the intervention itself — the reader will find it all here!" Robert M. Morse, M.D., Professor emeritus, psychiatry, Mayo Medical School and Former director of Addictive Disorders Services, Mayo Clinic.

--Kathy Ketcham, Coauthor, Beyond the Influence and The Spirituality of Imperfection

"Love First provides the most detailed account yet of how intervention works. A significant contribution to intervention literature. An empowering antidote to the disease of addiction."
