Synopses & Reviews
To get somewhere it is useful to know where you are going. This can be especially difficult for people struggling with issues of addiction, compulsion, physical or mental illness. In this simple yet effective three-part program, best-selling author Charles Whitfield helps readers chart their own treatment plan and find a way out of the often confusing vortex of recovery work. Through illustrative charts and graphics he shows readers how to write their own recovery plan, including how to identify core issues and how to integrate those issues into a personalized plan.
Stage one helps readers identify the illness or condition that plagues them and explains how recovery truly is within reach of those who participate in a full recovery program.
Stage two explains how healing requires the reader to consider their adult child of trauma issues, such as co-dependence. It describes the way out of the pain and confusion-learning self-awareness, self-acceptance, self-responsibility and self-reflection.
Stage three addresses more keys to success including having a healthy and nourishing spirituality and learning to live in the present moment, no longer burdened by the past or fearing the future.
My Recovery Plan is an empowering book; it will give readers hope and instill the knowledge that they can, indeed, recover.
This book was developed inresponse to a need for a recovery guide that addresses basic questions and creates an understandable blueprint for beginning the recovery process.
Stages of recovery are clearly outlined for the newcomer covering primarily three areas - body, mind, and spirit - recognizing that each is equally important for success.
