Second Printing

Crisis Intervention: Acting Against Addiction was first published in 1988 and was a bestseller. This is the first independent printing of the book, self-published by Ed Storti to fulfill frequent requests for the unavailable book. This special edition of Crisis Intervention is a keepsake and recommended for every recovery library.

In case studies culled from the more than 1,000 interventions over the first 13 years of his field research, Storti describes the technique of involving the addict’s family, friends and co-workers in a program designed to persuade the substance-dependent person to seek help in a treatment center. In one of the first books about addiction intervention, the author delineates professional standards to be looked for in selecting an interventionist.

Glen Hadley’s Perspective Matters with Ed Storti

I joined Joe Capela on Perspective Matters hosted by Glen Hadley on this Facebook Live event. We discussed the evolution of the intervention process and treatment itself.

Ed Storti talks about how a family can address a post-treatment situation where they are concerned a family member is not following their continuing care program. They may be seeing behavior similar to what led to a treatment program, and Ed will provides solution for what to do.


Heart to Heart

Ed Storti’s book, Heart to Heart: The Honorable Approach to Motivational Intervention, is, as he says, kind of a “cookbook” for those wishing to more fully understand the intervention process.
