All Treatment Programs
For Chemical Dependency
Are NOT Created Equally!
If you've been frustrated with a lack of information about alternatives to AA (Alcoholics Anonymous and other 12 step programs), then ...
Here's Good News!
“AA - Not The Only Way”
Is Your One-Stop Resource Guide To 12-Step Alternatives!
" AA - Not
The Only Way fills an important niche in the recovery literature.
It offers a compact but wide-ranging guide to addiction support and
treatment options. The author's recovery story will also be an inspiration
to those who find themselves battling a one-size-fits-all system that
is supposed to be helping them."

“AA - Not The Only Way”
As you may have noticed, when it comes to alcohol or drug recovery, the number one recommended program is Alcoholics Anonymous. 93% of ALL treatment programs in the US are still 12 step based.
If AA had a 90% success rate, there would be no need for this book.
Sadly, according to AA's own internal records, the success rate is less than 5 % in the first year, and 80% of the people drop out before that time.
And what's worse, there's a complete lack of information about effective alternatives… until now!
" This directory is a result of months of research in the field of addiction, and for anyone with a problem with drugs or alcohol, provides valuable information about the growing number of options available to achieve a happy and healthy life.
Bravo Melanie. "

is to array the reason and resources other people might seek to supplement
or substitue for AA and its ilk. Her contribution to the field is

You Have NOT Been Able To Find So Many
Treatment Choices At Your Fingertips…Until NOW!
According to the National Institute On Drug Abuse (NIDA), the best predictor of success in rehabilitation is YOUR belief in the program, i.e. if you are FORCED into a program, you are much less likely to succeed than if you CHOOSE a program, a program where you can say, “This program is for ME.”
Furthermore, NIDA reported “No single treatment program is right for everybody. Matching the treatment program to each individuals needs is CRITICAL to success.”
If the best predictor of success is to choose your own program…then choose your own program!!! This book will inform you of over 100 choices available. With this book, you can make YOUR OWN informed decisions.
What does all this mean to you?
If you want choices…If you want to find a program that is best matched for YOUR situation, you need this guide today.

" Melanie Solomon has taken a wonderful step toward making the process of identifying alternatives to traditional treatments, easier. By both providing her own story as a justification for this book, and by listing an ever growing list of providers who use up-to-date, evidence-based approaches in their work helping people with alcohol and drug problems, Ms. Solomon has done a great public service.

" Everyone has heard of Alcoholics Anonymous and other twelve-step programs that support millions of people each year with addiction. These self-help programs are wonderful supplements to treatment and continuing care, but they are not the only effective programs available for victims of addiction. Melanie Solomon’s book compares and contrasts several different self-help programs so the client can better choose which program best suites his or her needs. In addition to these resources, this book also provides the reader with contact information for licensed professionals and treatment facilities across the country for many of these approaches. This book is ideal for any addiction professional’s waiting room, treatment process, or as an integral part of the client’s continuing care plan. "
