Kicking Addictive Habits Once and for All : A Relapse Prevention Guide

Description

Millions of people valiantly struggle each day against a dependency on alcohol, drugs, food, gambling, sex or a multitude of other addictive disorders. For them, the journey to recovery is an endless process, and the possibility of relapse a constant danger. The majority of people with an addictive disorder will experience at least one relapse within the first three-months of recovery. It's not an easy battle to fight - depression, negative thinking, emotional upheaval, lack of support and a history of self-defeating behaviour are all high-risk relapse factors. But armed with the common-sense principles offered in this book, recovering addicts can learn to avert relapses before they occur and finally lead a normal, balanced life. Dennis Daley has also written "Dual Disorders: Counseling Clients with Chemical Dependency and Mental Illness" and "Relapse Prevention Workbook".
