Reviews - What do customers think about S.A.R.A.H.?

You Are Not Alone  Apr 24, 2008
When couple first begin to deal with the agony of sexual addiction, it is very common to feel like they are all alone and no-one can possible understand the pain and the shame that they are now facing. S.A.R.A.H. helps to shatter that myth. In this book Richard Blankenship demonstrates the realities that many couples face. He paints a true to life picture of the victories and the struggles that couples often encounter when dealing with addictive behaviors. I appreciate the fact that he doesn't paint either an overly rosey scenario, or a seemingly hopeless one either. Every couple is different. Couples who choose to do the work that's necessary to make it through these very tough times in their relationship can begin to experience a renewed sense of hope when they utilize the tools that are discussed in this book. This book wasn't written to be the only thing needed for healing in relationships, it was written to offer hope and direction for spouses who feel like they are all alone and who want someone who understands to come along side them and tell them that things can improve. I believe if spouses of addicts will use this book along with the tools that it recommends they will be well on their way to being able to see that their marriage can be much better than it currently is.
Not the "navigational" tool I was hoping for  Sep 9, 2007
I began Blankenship's self-published book filled with hope that this text would provide just that: hope. My husband and I have recently begun our journey of healing and restoration, and the content of S.A.R.A.H. seemed promising. The book begins well, with an uplifting chapter written largely by "guest author" Melissa Haas, the wife of a former sex addict. The book then defines different types of trauma, discusses family roles, addresses common myths surrounding sex addiction and recovery, shares appropriate scenarios for disclosure, outlines boundaries, and promotes the benefits of support groups. These concepts, while relevant, seemed a bit underdeveloped. Some chapters, such as the chapter on establishing boundaries and another on family roles, seemed like they were going to contain helpful and useful information, but a lack of concrete examples and full explanations left me at a loss as to how to apply the concepts to my situation. As soon as I would think, "Okay, this is going to be good," the paragraph would abruptly end or shift gears. One of the final chapters, ironically entitled "Your Grief Will Turn to Joy: The Forecast," promises to present life "on the other side" of a sex addiction. The chapter shares four stories written in the words of Blankenships' clients. Rather than share "joy," however, the stories depict marriages that either ended in divorce, separation, or a seemingly melancholy acceptance of a tragically depleted relationship. Not one story of true victory or a "thriving" marriage is shared, although Blankenship himself states that "marriages not only survive, they thrive." I guess just not the marriages he chose as illustrations for his book. In addition, the book contains many grammatical and syntactical errors. Overall, I can tell that Blankenship is a very insightful and compassionate counselor, but his book would have benefited from the touch of a professional editor. S.A.R.A.H. claims to help "spouses navigate the journey of healing," and while some useful concepts are introduced, the off-roading and vague directions can be distracting when trying to use Blankenship's book as a navigational tool.
