If you have ever wondered what happens after you get sober – Stage II Recovery: Life Beyond Addiction by Earnie Larsen gets to the heart of where real recovery starts – rebuilding the life after drug and alcohol addiction.
About the Book
Stage II Recovery: Life Beyond Addiction teaches that recovery is more than just going to addiction detox treatment and attending meetings and working a program. This is because recovery success starts with setting goals and life planning. For instance, without being able to define and understand what it is that you hope to accomplish, you will wander haplessly through life without motivation and direction. The book is divided into seven chapters:
- Recovery is the Goal (Ch. 1)
- Self-Defeating, Learned Behaviors (Ch. 2)
- Habits (Ch. 3)
- Change (Ch. 4)
- Working a Program (Ch. 5)
- Relationships (Ch. 6)
- Success (Ch. 7)
Well written, the book is easy to understand and is filled with humor and compassion. Probably one of the most important chapters is 6 “Relationships”. This is because everyone who has been impacted drug and alcohol addiction has suffered in their relationships with others. Moreover, this book offers insight into rebuilding relationships. Stage II Recovery: Life Beyond Addiction presents life in recovery as an opportunity that is simply too good to pass up. Life in recovery means reassessing behavior patterns that are just as destructive as the addiction itself. If you are involved in a Twelve Step program, that seems to have stalled in moving forward, then this book is for you.
