Written by Bob Meehan, the "Father of Drug Intervention," and first published in 1984 as an answer to the alarming drug problem in our country, Beyond the Yellow Brick Road, was an instant success. With over 100,000 copies in print since publication, BYBR is a testament to Bob Meehan's unrivaled insight into teenagers and adolescent chemical abuse. This powerful book guides readers through the psyche of these "fun machines" we call teenagers. Additionally, the text offers parents practical advice about teens and drugs in a time of drug proliferation in society and the media, even what to look for in local drug programs and how to start a drug program. The insight in BYBR stems from Bob Meehan's 30 years of helping thousands of teenagers and their families recover from the devastation of teenage chemical abuse and learn to live a life of "enthusiastic sobriety."

This newly revised edition of the classic text in its field has been updated and re-released in 2000. The Revised edition contains new insight into Bob Meehan's journey since the initial release of the book, and updated perspectives and guidance for parenting and teenagers as the yellow brick road leads us into the 21st Century.

About the Author:

Bob Meehan, considered the true "Father of Drug Intervention," has been involved in the field of recovery for the past 30 years, after 14 years of his own chemical abuse. He is 58 years old and has been married to the same woman for the last 30 years; their daughter, granddaughter, and son-in-law live next door to them in Arizona. His programs of "enthusiastic recovery," and programs modeled after this philosophy, have helped nearly 100,000 families recover from the devastation of teen chemical abuse. Additionally, he has opened six hospital units and three residential programs for recovery. His experience made it necessary for him to stop long enough from helping others to write Beyond The Yellow Brick Road, because there simply was nothing else available to assist people.

After helping tens of thousands of individuals recover from chemical addiction, Bob has come to the conclusion that the main element of an addictive personality stems from a lack of self worth. Having witnessed the same problems, but with a slight spin and a lowering of the bar, over the past three decades, Bob subsequently took the time to write Bumper Stickers. This, his second book, discusses how the mind, body, and spirit work in a positive conspiracy to help people stay focused and achieve their own goals.

In a world of spins and scams, Bob's approach is fresh and down to earth, because that is where he lives. His books do not beckon the reader to buy subsequent books or tapes; they are self-contained self-treatment programs written in a conversational tone that makes them remarkably accessible. Further, Bob's books don't merely highlight problems, they offer practical solutions.

Bob currently works as a consultant to corporations and other large organizations as a lecturer and helping them with their employee assistance programs.

Review:

"This powerful classic can help you save your kid's life." -- Og Mandino, Author of The Greatest Salesman in the World
