I am just getting started cataloging recovery Internet sites.

This is a 12-step oriented site with "2700 recovery resources in 75 categories" providing "information and help for alcoholism, alanon, substance abuse, abuse and trauma, and mental health. A constantly updated library for drug rehab, sober living houses, alcoholics anonymous and residential programs." Very useful. Includes chat and email discussion groups.

A TM-based ayurvedic practioner who uses multiple modalities, including Maharishi Ayurveda
to help individuals recover from a stressful past. This coaching is to be used in addition to
standard medical care (if needed) and a licensed therapist.


The following books have come to my attention since the last edition
of The Spiritual Recovery Manual. I think you may find them useful.

The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You
by Elaine Aron (Random House; 1996; 251 pages)

You may not be dysfunctional; you may be highly sensitive. According to Elaine Aron, 20% of the population are Highly Sensitive Persons (HSPs). HSPs tend to be labeled as shy and introverted, which, according to the author, is an unfair and limiting characterization. HSPs are simply people who thrive in a peaceful, nourishing environment and have a different set of talents and gifts than the aggressive used-car-salesmen of the world.

The Narcissistic Family: Diagnosis and Treatment
by Stephanie Donaldson-Pressman and Robert M. Pressman
(Jossey-Bass; 1997; 192 pages)

This book extends the concept of adult children of alcoholics. For example, non-addicted parents can seriously damage their children if they are consistently too self-absorbed to acknowledge and meet their children's emotional needs. Includes treatment suggestions. Written by counselors for counselors, but useful for anyone.
