This workbook is based on success. If you have tried traditional treatment and still don’t understand why you can’t stop alcohol or drugs, or if you are attempting to quit for the first time, this workbook can help. It does not have to cost thousands of dollars and years of therapy to change your life! This workbook is empowering for both the person who struggles with an addiction and those who try to help.
This is not an AA, 12-step approach. AA is a great support network and has helped many, but not everyone is the same. We all have individual thoughts, dreams and goals with diferent ways of getting to them. I feel that eliminating options to “recovery” by saying only AA can work, discourages many and can often be detrimental for those who disagree with the main stream disease model approach.
There is hope! There are many who have found the secret to ridding themselves of their addiction forever. They have “recovered” and are now living the life they choose. One approach does not fit all! I have often heard that if someone struggling with alcohol or drugs does not agree with AA or their therapist that they must be “in denial”, “resistant to therapy” or “not following the program” and will soon relapse. I disagree strongly!
You do not have to be miserable, attend meetings for the rest of your life, or flounder around with an endless struggle against addiction! You already have the answer and ability to change. All that is needed is a willingness and desire for change!
My purpose in creating the workbook is to present another approach to addiction that is choice based and not disease based. It is to share my views, oppinions and experience in what I have learned in the process with the hope that it will encourage others to do the same.
I have worked as a clinical counselor in the addiction field for over 15 years and have seen the tremendous strength and determination many have used to follow their own path to “recovery”. Success in recovery is extremely possible! The ability to “recover” is already within us and this reality should not be forgotten. Keep believing! Click Here To Review or Purchase This Book.
