The Definitive Guide To Addiction Interventions
The first academic text on the subject of addiction interventions, expert interventionist Dr. Stanger co-authored The Definitive Guide to Addiction Interventions: A Collective Strategy.
At the request of Routledge, Dr. Stanger set out to provide a collective strategy to introduce people to the best practices in addiction intervention, bridging the gap between theory and practice.
The book makes intervention success accessible, while pulling from decades of experience in behavioral health and academia with rich detail and thorough analysis. The book includes downloadable worksheets to further enrich the reader’s practical experience.
Released in the Fall of 2018, The Definitive Guide has received glowing praise from scholars and practitioners alike.
“The Definitive Guide to Addiction Interventions by Louise Stanger and Lee Weber is a much-needed contribution to the addiction field. The text follows an easy to understand framework that flows from Dr. Stanger’s decades of work in the field.”

Our family turned to Louise in utter desperation after my sister was unable to stay sober. Louise helped us get through one of the most difficult times our family has ever experienced—literally saving my sister’s life.

Louise helped our family put the doubt and fear aside as we sought information about conducting an intervention. She provided the support & knowledge necessary for us to confidently move forward in helping my mom seek treatment, who has now been sober for almost two years.
It occurred to me that I hadn’t sent my annual update on December 13th when I turned three years sober. Life is great & just getting better on so many levels. None of it would be possible if not for you & my sobriety/recovery.
