SELF-HELP / Substance Abuse & Addictions / Drug Dependence

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 longterm recovery and to help process sometimes overwhelming feelings. Mindfulness is also recognised as a powerful tool in relapse prevention. Interspersed with personal reflections from the author's own experience, Drug Addiction Recovery suggests ways to come to terms with the past and to live peacefully in the present.

Topics include:
The nature of addiction
Associated addictive or dysfunctional behaviours
Why we need to grieve
Mindfulness and the brain
Coping with depression, shame and alienation
Guided meditations
Written and verbal exercises
Recovery stories

For those building emotional and spiritual wellbeing in recovery, Christopher Dines offers ways to enhance self-respect, and points the path to serenity.
