15 Advanced Recovery Tools
Recovery Manual explains how addicts, codependents and adult children
of alcoholics can use meditation, ayurveda and yoga to accelerate their
recovery, break through "plateau" and move on to advanced stages
of recovery. It simply and clearly explains, in a language anyone can
understand, how to heal your mind, how to detoxify and rebalance your
body, and how to understand the experiences you are here on earth to learn
and grow through. This is a groundbreaking book.
Recovery Manual is a rich and valuable resource. It starts by reviewing
experts' understanding of how addiction propagates through families and
destroys our ability to be happy and healthy. It then goes on to describes
a toolset of 15 Advanced Recovery Tools that different people can use
in different ways. It concludes with three detailed sections of resources,
and provides case studies, giving the gritty, real-life experiences of
Here is how this
book can help you:
- In a 12 Step
program? Doing your eleventh step and looking for a reliable,
systematic, non-religious way to get a spiritual awakening? Research
shows that the yogic techniques described in this bookand these
techniques are very easy to learnmore than double the long-term
abstinence rates of alcoholics and drug addicts. Even more impressive,
research shows that the tools in the book substantially reduce drinking
and drug use even of people who do not yet have an addiction or who
have used these tools for reasons other than substance abuse (they may
learn the tools for health reasons or for self-development). It is often
saidby members of AAthat only 7% of those who attend AA
meetings stop drinking. That is not a very encouraging statistic. If
you are in AA or NA, and are serious about your recovery, you need to
get this book.
- In a non-12-step
program, such as Women For Sobriety or Rational Recovery
or LifeRing? The Spiritual Recovery Manual presents a
new model for understanding addiction. This is a model that supersedes
the biopsychosocial disease model for addiction. The old model is not
completely thrown out, but is modified to incorporate a developmental
component: you learn your way out of addiction. And how you learn your
way out is clearly explained. This approach works well with all existing
recovery methods and peer support groups.
- Would you like
to recover in private, without getting in front of group after
group and telling everyone your business? If you are being held back
from starting recovery because you don't want to air your dirty laundry
in public, this approach is for you. You don't have to wait until you
believe you are an addict, or until you are desperate, to start improving
your life. You have patterns of imbalance in your mind and bodythis
is common in our societyand you can heal these patterns using
the approaches explained in the book.
- Have you experienced
trauma? Or did you grow up an a severely dysfunctional or
alcoholic family? If so, you have intense stress stored in your
mind and bodyyou have dysfunctional, nonproductive coping mechanisms
deeply embedded in your physiology and psychology. The Spiritual
Recovery Manual will show you several techniques for reprogramming
your behavior and bringing your body and mind back to a more natural
and relaxed state.
- Are you a counselor,
recovery professional, or doctor specializing in addiction medicine?
Stay abreast of the latest advances in evidence-based, complementary
and alternative medicine. This book is your easiest and most effective
way to stay up-to-date. It will dramatically improve your success rates
