Description
This book is for recovering people, their families, and addiction professionals who want to understand psychological and spiritual thinking about addiction on a deep level. I have been working on this book for a long time. There are complex psychological and spiritual issues that need to be addressed in recovery. In treatment programs this problem has been dealt with by using a multidisciplinary team of recovering addiction counselors, therapists, social workers, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and spiritual and pastoral counselors. There are many books about psychology and spirituality in recovery. This book is different because it presents a way of thinking that puts together a wide variety of different psychological and spiritual models of recovery. One of the big problems for people in recovery from substance abuse is the way that each approach to recovery uses different words to describe essentially the same mental and spiritual processes. Sometimes the same words are used to mean different things. Sometimes different words are used that mean essentially the same thing. There are many books about mindfulness and how it can be understood in a way that relates to cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and integrated with mindfulness meditation to make an extremely powerful tool for recovery, personal growth, and change.
