Conquer Substance Use Issues - Your Way!
Millions of people today who are struggling with some kind of substance use issue or other challenging, hard-to-break habit or addiction have come to the conclusion that the 12 steps simply are not for them. Similar to the way that not everyone responds the way they are supposed to when taking a medication for an illness, many people who use substances but want to change would consider themselves “12 Step Resistant” for a variety of reasons, yet they desperately need an alternative approach that works.
Finally, an effective method for making positive changes with our bad habits and addictions is here. The exciting new book Taking the Escalator: An Alternative to the 12 Steps, written by Ken Pecoraro, is different than the 12 steps and many other methods because the methodology does not prescribe a predetermined path toward self-improvement simply based on what may have worked for some other individuals years ago. Taking the Escalator instead allows the reader to consider their own personal values, beliefs and circumstances and then develop their own road map toward “escalation” or “upward change”, which in effect is the process getting better by getting motivated and staying that way! This amazing method will simply change the way the world looks at addiction which is long overdue.
Ken Pecoraro, LCSW, LCADC, has worked directly providing treatment for individuals with substance use and emotional-behavioral issues for over 20 years using a motivational perspective. His extensive knowledge and expertise with helping individuals who find change extremely challenging as well as caring for individuals who did not respond to traditional approaches permeates Taking the Escalator: An Alternative to the 12 Steps.
