This book shows recovering people how to tap their own source of positive energy in a new approach in the search for serenity - a quest recognized as the recovery from addiction. The author argues that this psychology empowers those in recovery to find the source of that recovery within.
This book shows recovering people how to tap their own source of positive energy in a new approach in the search for serenity - a quest recognised as the recovery from addiction. This paradigm for understanding the common denominator for all addictions springs from recent breakthroughs in psychology. The author argues that this psychology empowers those in recovery to find the source of that recovery within rather than rely on external rituals, powers and beliefs. He shows that by understanding how the mind works, the addict can satisfy the desire for serenity and realize full recovery rather than coping with the disease.
"In a simple and insightful manner, Bailey applies some age-old principles of mental health to an understanding of the nature of addiction and offers the hope that, for counselors and clients alike, serenity can be the immediate goal rather than the distant dream." -- John Du Cane, executive director, Institute for Chemical Dependency Professionals of Minnesota
