Publisher Comments:

Announcing a completely revised and updated second edition of The Recovery Book, the bible of addiction recovery. Written for the 23 million Americans struggling with alcohol and drugs, it is "a clear, accurate, and comprehensive resource--for patients, their families, and helping professionals" (Anthony B. Radcliffe, M.D., former president, American Society of Addiction Medicine).

Dr. Al Mooney, who lectures internationally on recovery, writing with medical and health journalists Howard Eisenberg and Catherine Dold, covers all the latest in addiction science and recovery techniques. Extensive research in neuroplasticity, for example, sheds new light on how alcohol and drugs actually alter pathways in the brain--but also how this same process, when trained in recovery, can remold the brain, making sobriety a routine way of life. A new understanding of gender and addiction leads to revised insights, techniques, and new hope for treating women in recovery. The book also covers the latest problems and treatments for prescription drugs (now more pernicious than illegal drugs); up-to-date models for intervention; and more.

But what really sets the book apart is its question-and-answer format--"My wife wants me to go to AA, and I think that's ridiculous. How can I settle this argument?" "I take a few oxycodone pills each week. They're prescription, so they must be safe, right?" "I've been in this treatment center for nearly a week. I feel great. I'm cured. Why can't I leave now?" That simple, direct approach makes the daunting journey to sobriety doable.

Synopsis:

-_Every issue is addressed, always with hope and understanding, and often with direct suggestions promising relief. . . . Nothing could be better.-" (From the foreword by Stanley E. Gitlow, M.D., Clinical Professor of Medicine, Mt. Sinai School of Medicin

Synopsis:

A unique collaboration between Dr. Al Mooney, head of the Willingway Hospital, Arlene Eisenberg, coauthor of the What to Expect books, and medical journalist Howard Eisenberg, The Recovery Bookis the first book to explain exactly what a recovering addict and his or her family will face during every stage of living clean and sober.

The authors provide a wealth of information on in- and out-patient services, support groups, family relationships, temptations, and worries. Hundreds of questions and answers address every particular of what a person in recovery can expect, from mental and physical health concerns to why a former cocaine addict should not use Windex.

What withdrawal is like. When the euphoria of not drinking wanes. Feeling uncomfortable at AA. Regaining trust. Sleep problems. What to tell co-workers. Twenty ways to dump depression and anxiety. Making and using leisure time. Learning what normal is. From detox to the three phases of recovery--Saving Your Life, Enriching Your Life, Prolonging Your Life--The Recovery Book leads addicts through recovery's highs, lows, pitfalls, and challenges. Includes sections on AA and other support groups, exercise, health, the Clean and Sober Recovery Diet, and quitting smoking. First prize winner of the 1993 Markie Award, sponsored by the National Foundation for Alcoholism and Addiction Communication (NFAAC). Over 209,000 copies in print.
