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 resource—for 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 brain—but 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 format—“My wife wants me to go to AA, and I think that’s ridiculous. How can I settle this argument?” “I take a few oxycodone pills each week. They’re prescription, so they must be safe, right?” “I’ve been in this treatment center for nearly a week. I feel great. I’m cured. Why can’t I leave now?” That simple, direct approach makes the daunting journey to sobriety doable.

The best Step-By-Step Recovery Book. Before this I have never read anything that made me feel better in my recovery. I had gone to several meetings and read other materials as well as conferred with my Doctors’ and therapist. Several questions I had but couldn’t quite ask were answered in this book. As well as things I was feeling, and scared about, but wasn’t able to put words to. It helped me to relax, to feel like I was experiencing something other people had been through. I didn’t feel “crazy” for the first time in months. It was a great quick reference guide too. It’s all set up in easy to read chapters covering everything you need to know about recovering from addictions. It explains specifically steps to go through the detox process from every drug or alchohol, medical advice on how to get help, the whole withdrawal process for each type of addict, and more importantly-the way to get on with your life with your kids, your spouse, your family, your job, and yourself. It doesn’t clutter…
