Couple's Book Selected

September 16, 1990

WESTMINSTER - Deborah Wright, coordinator of the Institute for Drug and Alcohol Abuse Education at Carroll Community College, and her husband, Bob, have been notified that their forthcoming book, "Dare to Confront," has been chosen as a Literary Guild Selection.

Published by Master Media Ltd. of New York, the 220-page hardcover book tells how families, friends and co-workers can convince a substance abuser to stop or get help, without the assistance of a professional interventionist.

The book has received several national endorsements and carries an introduction by Dr. Darryl Inaba of the Haight Ashbury Clinics and former ambassador Dr. Ruth Farkas.

Rob White, employee assistance director of the University of Maryland Medical System, has called this book the most well-written, comprehensive and enjoyable book about intervention on the market.

The Wrights and their two children moved to Maryland in January from Oregon. They are the founders of a nationally credited addictions treatment center in Sun Valley, Idaho.

They specialize in giving intervention training for employers, addictions and family counselors, ministers and community groups.

A second book, "Intervention for a Drug Free Workplace," is scheduled for release by Hazelden Educational Materials Inc. in April 1991.
