This book explores a new realm in data-based modeling with applications to hydrology. Pursuing a case study approach, it presents a rigorous evaluation of state-of-the-art input selection methods on the basis of detailed and comprehensive experimentation and comparative studies that employ emerging hybrid techniques for modeling and analysis. Advanced computing offers a range of new options for hydrologic modeling with the help of mathematical and data-based approaches like wavelets, neural networks, fuzzy logic, and support vector machines. Recently machine learning/artificial intelligence techniques have come to be used for time series modeling. However, though initial studies have shown this approach to be effective, there are still concerns about their accuracy and ability to make predictions on a selected input space.
This book is very easy to read and understand for everyone. In our book I refer to the family members of the drug and alcohol addicted person as the victims of the addiction. This book goes into detail about how the addiction affects each family member and how the family can go into treatment as a family, regain the family unity and love they once knew. This book will show you what a child goes through from birth on into adulthood that was born into a family unit that has been afflicted with drug and alcohol addiction. In this book there is up-to-date information on all the street drugs, how to look for alcohol and drug use in the work place, and the medical illnesses related to heavy drug and alcohol addiction. You will learn about the three levels of addiction, the long road home, the intervention into the family unit, and much more. This book also goes into detail about the long process of addiction and how it brings a person to the point of death or to the lowest levels of life. You will learn about the whole process from detoxification through the treatment of the addiction. I am sure there is knowledge in this book that you have never seen before in any other book on this subject. We have tried to take every issue related to addiction and the family to its core. A counselor must have hope and faith in their skills, knowing that they can help someone turn their life around and achieve sobriety. Every counselor is always looking for that light to start shining in their client because that moment that client's light starts to shine is their "Dawn of Recovery."
