The Moderation Management Guide for People Who Want to Reduce Their Drinking
by Audrey Kishline with an introduction by Dr. Stanton Peele
"The official handbook of Moderation Management, a non-profit, national self-help program that supports moderate drinking as a reasonable and attainable recovery goal for problem drinkers. Based on her own unsatisfactory experience with abstinence-based programs, Kishline offers inspiration and a step-by-step program to help individuals avoid the kind of drinking that detrimentally affects their lives."
The author, who is also the founder and president of Moderation Management, describes a program for those who can't or won't abstain from alcohol. Believing that there is a continuum of drinking problems and behaviors, the moderate drinking plan allows a person to learn to control their drinking behaviors through a 9-step process.
Interestingly enough, the author was involved in an automobile accident in mid-2000, which resulted in two people's deaths. She pleaded guilty in June, 2000 to two counts of vehicular homicide. After the hearing, she gave a brief statement and answered questions from reporters, saying her moderate-drinking program had been nothing but a way for her to deny her problem drinking.
