-- On February 22nd, at 7:00 PM Eastern Time, Anne Fletcher, M.S., R.D. www.annemfletcher.com, will spend an hour with not only the SMART Recovery community, but anyone interested in learning about her newly published book, INSIDE REHAB.

What happens inside drug and alcohol rehab centers and how rehab works are a mystery to those outside the industry – and sometimes even to those inside it. INSIDE REHAB: The Surprising Truth About Addiction Treatment—and How to Get Help That Works (Viking; $27.95; ISBN: 978-0-670-02522-
0; On Sale February 7, 2013 - http://www.amazon.com/
is the first book to give readers a thoughtful and sensitive yet no-holds-barred insider’s view of drug and alcohol rehab. It focuses on real people whose stories illustrate the serious issues facing individuals in rehab and endemic in the rehab industry today. Some stories are disturbing while others are inspiring, as they provide an honest and critical look at the current state of the addiction treatment industry in the U.S., contrasting what goes on in rehab with what experts and scientific studies suggest should go on.
Through the stories, descriptions of Fletcher’s rehab visits, and in-depth research, INSIDE REHAB, explores the gap in addiction treatment between “best practice” and reality, and at the same time provides readers with practical solutions and thoughtful guidance about how to find quality care when it’s needed.
Known for her ability to weave together her inspiring findings from real-life success stories with state-of-the-
art information about health issues, Anne is the author of seven other books. A frequent guest of the national media, Anne has appeared on the Today Show, the CBS Early Show, The View, Good Morning America, CNN, National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation, and The Larry King Radio Show.
