 O ­­Fletcher, Ann, Sober For Good, 2001 Houghton Mifflin Company

Anne's book is one of the most versatile readings for patients and families. Consumers who are shopping for treatment options find he book helpful in deciding how to proceed. We use it for patient education, almost like a text book at times. Patients need to discover the competencies they will need to achieve and SFG really helps. SFG is also helpful to give to family members who are skeptical of a Clinic like this where we don't use AA/conventional Minnesota Model techniques at all. It's also a great bedside reference for patients. We now ask them to flip open the book and read one random page a day. It's a great refresher and clarifying tool.........
