Announcing a completely revised and updated second edition of The Recovery Book, the bible of addiction recovery. Written for the 23 million Americans struggling with alcohol and drugs, it is a clear, accurate, and comprehensive resourcefor patients, their families, and helping professionals (Anthony B. Radcliffe, M.D., former president, American Society of Addiction Medicine).
Dr. Al Mooney, who lectures internationally on recovery, writing with medical and health journalists Howard Eisenberg and Catherine Dold, covers all the latest in addiction science and recovery techniques. Extensive research in neuroplasticity, for example, sheds new light on how alcohol and drugs actually alter pathways in the brainbut also how this same process, when trained in recovery, can remold the brain, making sobriety a routine way of life. A new understanding of gender and addiction leads to revised insights, techniques, and new hope for treating women in recovery. The book also covers the latest problems and treatments for prescription drugs (now more pernicious than illegal drugs); up-to-date models for intervention; and more.
But what really sets the book apart is its question-and-answer formatMy wife wants me to go to AA, and I think thats ridiculous. How can I settle this argument? I take a few oxycodone pills each week. Theyre prescription, so they must be safe, right? Ive been in this treatment center for nearly a week. I feel great. Im cured. Why cant I leave now? That simple, direct approach makes the daunting journey to sobriety doable.
