Leap of Power is based on evidence that people are strong and capable, and can take charge of their own lives, including their use of alcohol and other drugs. It supports listeners in respectfully evaluating the impact of drugs on their lives, without judgment and put-downs of any sort, and without an agenda of telling them how to behave. Listeners who have a drug problem and want to make changes will find help in evaluating their options and detailed guidance on how to succeed with either setting new limits or quitting. Listeners who are uncertain whether or not they have a drug problem will find help in making their own determination about the matter. This book shows that even people who are discouraged and have failed in previous attempts to overcome drug problems can take a Leap of Power, analyze what has held them back and design new strategies to ensure success. They can take control of their drug use and make important changes in the rest of their lives. The message of this book is that “You can do it.” Robert Schwebel, PhD, is a psychologist who wrote and developed the Seven Challenges, a comprehensive counseling program that addresses drug problems. It is widely used across the United States, and in Canada and Germany. Originally written for adolescents and young adults, the program is now adapted for all age groups.
