About this title


Supported Sobriety is a breakthrough approach to person-centered, evidenced-based, recovery treatment and support for those most challenged to achieve stable sobriety. It offers structured, interactive exercises and tools that adapt the principles of recovery in a manner that works for these individuals with mental health, social, intellectual or other learning disorders through daily practice and repetition, without which, they will not likely be able to achieve or sustain recovery. Individuals and their professional providers will likely experience stronger focus on recovery, more meaningful, measureable progress, and a greater sense of satisfaction and effectiveness through living the 24-hour plan, strategies and tools.


“Jurewicz’s program is very needed for this population.” - Sue Thomas, Director, Hazelden Publishing

“A practical guide for general audiences who want to learn about disabilities in terms we can all understand.”- Kathleen C. Laundy, PsyD., M.S.W., Yale School of Medicine

“I am a primary care physician whose patients include young people in a residential drug rehab program and those with disabilities. This book is the go-to resource I have badly needed to give these patients good care.” - Emily Nolfo, MD FACP, Asst. Clinical Professor, Yale School of Medicine

“Jurewicz hits the mark with her innovative, step-by-step guide to support those with addiction coupled with intellectual disabilities and/or mental health disorders. The manual The Challenged Addict offers an incisive understanding of the nature of addiction along with promising resolutions to the dilemmas involved. With the growing need for specialized addiction services, human service professionals will need to know about this resource.” - Timothy F. Madden. Founder and Chairman of the Board, Dungarvin, Inc.

“The topic of learning disabilities has remained an area of weakness in the addiction/recovery field since its inception into the educational field back in the 1990’s. Clinicians would benefit by learning the techniques Jurewicz has arduously worked and developed over the past years. Addiction Recovery definitely feels like one of the missing pieces to the puzzle of recovery.”- Samuel M. Silverman M.D., FAPA, DFASAM, Assistant Clinical Professor; UConn Medical School Director of Medical Education at Rushford Center, A Hartford HealthCare Partner

“As a leadership development and training consultant for the past 40 years, I recommend The Challenged Addict using the Supported Sobriety approach as an excellent training resource for professionals consulting in the field of addiction recovery. It offers straightforward and practical learning methodologies that are user-friendly and practical in terms of their immediate application. This is a must read.” - Vincent Baglio, President, Baglio Consulting; Talent Development Consultant and Executive Coach with American Airlines, American Express, Time Warner, and New York Life
