Author and therapist, David Treadway remarks, "At last! A how-to-book that describes a tailor made approach to each individual rather than a
one-size-fits-all approach. He explains,
Your spouse nags you about your drinking. Your boss suggests Alcoholics Anonymous. You know you have a problem. You need a solution; you need a miracle. This book presents a new
approach to therapy that focuses not on the past or the present but on the future, not on problems but on solutions. The authors ask readers to imagine a miracle: Suppose while you are
asleep tonight a miracle happens and your problem is solved, just like that! Because you were sleeping, you didn't know that this miracle occurred. What is the first thing tomorrow morning
that will let you know that there has been a miracle and that your problem is solved? From that "first thing," the authors help readers to imagine a future when 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. The Miracle Method provides a way for each person to create his own vision of success and the path he needs to follow
to get there. In this book you learn:
- A highly practical, step-by-step method for overcoming difficulties with alcohol.
- A way to develop your own, personal recovery plan.
- How to deal with setbacks and relapses on the road to sobriety.
