15 Advanced Recovery Tools
Spiritual Recovery Manual explains how addicts,
codependents and adult children of alcoholics can use
meditation, ayurveda and yoga to accelerate their recovery,
break through "plateau" and move on to advanced stages of
recovery. It simply and clearly explains, in a language anyone
can understand, how to heal your mind, how to detoxify and
rebalance your body, and how to understand the experiences you
are here on earth to learn and grow through. This is a
Spiritual Recovery Manual is a rich and valuable resource.
It starts by reviewing experts' understanding of how addiction
propagates through families and destroys our ability to be happy
and healthy. It then goes on to describes a toolset of 15
Advanced Recovery Tools that different people can use in
different ways. It concludes with three detailed sections of
resources, and provides case studies, giving the gritty,
real-life experiences of four people.
how this book can help you:
- In a 12
Step program? Doing your eleventh step and
looking for a reliable, systematic, non-religious way to get a
spiritual awakening? Research shows that the yogic techniques
described in this book—and these techniques are very easy to
learn—more than double the long-term abstinence rates of
alcoholics and drug addicts. Even more impressive, research
shows that the tools in the book substantially reduce drinking
and drug use even of people who do not yet have an addiction
or who have used these tools for reasons other than substance
abuse (they may learn the tools for health reasons or for
self-development). It is often said—by members of AA—that only
7% of those who attend AA meetings stop drinking. That is not
a very encouraging statistic. If you are in AA or NA, and are
serious about your recovery, you need to get this book.
- In a
non-12-step program, such as Women For Sobriety or Rational
Recovery or LifeRing? The Spiritual Recovery
Manual presents a new model for understanding addiction.
This is a model that supersedes the biopsychosocial disease
model for addiction. The old model is not completely thrown
out, but is modified to incorporate a developmental component:
you learn your way out of addiction. And how you learn your
way out is clearly explained. This approach works well with
all existing recovery methods and peer support groups.
- Would you
like to recover in private, without getting in front
of group after group and telling everyone your business? If
you are being held back from starting recovery because you
don't want to air your dirty laundry in public, this approach
is for you. You don't have to wait until you believe you are
an addict, or until you are desperate, to start improving your
life. You have patterns of imbalance in your mind and
body—this is common in our society—and you can heal these
patterns using the approaches explained in the book.
- Have you
experienced trauma? Or did you grow up an a severely
dysfunctional or alcoholic family? If so, you have
intense stress stored in your mind and body—you have
dysfunctional, nonproductive coping mechanisms deeply embedded
in your physiology and psychology. The Spiritual Recovery
Manual will show you several techniques for
reprogramming your behavior and bringing your body and mind
back to a more natural and relaxed state.
- Are you a
counselor, recovery professional, or doctor
specializing in addiction medicine? Stay abreast of the latest
advances in evidence-based, complementary and alternative
medicine. This book is your easiest and most effective way to
stay up-to-date. It will dramatically improve your success
rates in treating addiction. You can give this book to your
clients, or you can prescribe the tools it describes.
