'A process for healing from paralyzing grief, addiction and emotional wounds.' - Rudolph E. Tanzi, PhD, New York Times bestselling author.
Healing from addiction can be an intensely painful process as decades of frozen grief are unpacked. This book is written to help recovering addicts to work through old wounds including bereavement, abandonment, betrayal, and abuse. It uses effective mindfulness practices to complement long term recovery and to help process sometimes-overwhelming feelings. Mindfulness is also recognized as a powerful tool in relapse prevention. Interspersed with personal reflections from the author's own experience, and stories from those with similar experience, this book balances insight and support with practical strategies and mindfulness tools.
Covering everything those recovering from addiction might need to know, including the need to grieve, coping with depression and shame, and spiritual wellbeing, it also offers a number of guided meditations as well as a variety of different exercises.
For those building emotional wellbeing and peace in recovery, Drug-Addiction Recovery: The Mindful Way offers healing ways to enhance self-respect, and points the path to serenity.
