Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“John Dupuy’s Integral Recovery is a revolutionary application of Integral Theory to the national epidemic of substance abuse and addictive behavior. Clear, comprehensive, and appropriately inclusive, it points to a radically new way to deal with alcoholism and addiction, one that looks to be incredibly promising and much more effective than existing approaches, all of which are partial and segmented. The Integral approach, on the other hand, by taking a truly holistic (in the best sense of that term) approach, points to a comprehensive strategy much more promising in its results. Highly recommended for professional and layperson alike!” — Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision: A Very Short Introduction to the Revolutionary Integral Approach to Life, God, the Universe, and Everything

“John Dupuy’s Integral Recovery should be considered a ‘must read’ for professionals in the addiction recovery field. Such a holistic approach to the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions is long overdue. This book deserves a wide readership.” — Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World

    Addiction leaves no stone unturned in its merciless march to de

    Addiction leaves no stone unturned in its merciless march to decimate its victims, their families, and any other innocent life or wholesome thing that happens to get in its way. Addiction, though, has met its match with John Dupuy and his extremely modern, smart, innovative, genuinely holistic, comprehensive, and revolutionary Integral Recovery curriculum.

    Addicts seek to get high to escape the pain. Countless genuinely well-intentioned family members, healers, counselors, therapists seek to heal their addicted clients, husbands, wives, children, parents, friends, and co-workers. Governments, schools, law enforcement, etc. all seek to win the war on drugs.

    John invites all concerned to make the switch from being a seeker to being a real practitioner. His book is filled with a multitude of incredibly new and effective disciplines, which when daily embraced, are game changing in their healing transformative effects for those battling addiction and those on the sidelines trying to help. The world is a better place because of John Dupuy and the revolution he has begun.

    Integral Recovery: A Revolutionary Approach to the Treatment of

    Integral Recovery: A Revolutionary Approach to the Treatment of Alcoholism and Addiction (SUNY series in Integral Theory)


    (Paperback)
    I have devoted my life to recovery and have worked as a counselor for fifteen years. I have long felt that there is a great deal missing from traditional treatment modalities. John's book not only confirms many of my own intuitions in a way that respects and appreciates how lucky we are to have the existing programs, but opens new ways of looking at recovery that have improved my journey in ways I could not have dreamt, and will offer generations to come new heights and depths in the pursuit of sobriety.
    John Dupuy presents Ken Wilber's AQAL mapping of human potential and applies it to the challenges of addiction, pioneering technology even while reaching into ancient wisdom. Integral suggests a framework which honors all other approaches while assisting in limiting them to their net gains and balancing them with complementary aspects of recovery. This practice whether used by an institution, group, or an individual has certain inclusions are highly suggested with recognition of what is already working, or what is preferred by a given practitioner.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about recovery, it is the future.

    reviewed by Dennis Wittrock, MA (Germany)

    Let's be clear, "Integral Recovery - A Revolutionary Approach to the Treatment of Alcoholism and Addiction" is nothing short of that: revolutionary. And I mean not just for addicts and treatment providers. This book has the potential to inspire you to completely change your lifestyle and set you on the life-long path to mastery. His adapted version of Integral Life Practice, called Integral Recovery Practice, is an ingenious blueprint for loosening the deadly grip of the disease of addiction, recovering one's dignity as human being, and eventually discovering that the limit of our potential for growth and continuing evolution is literally infinite.

    John Dupuy unpacks, what is probably the single greatest gift that "our beloved addicts"(as he affectionately calls his clients) can reveal to the world: the utter urgency of the choice between death or passionate practice. This is dead-on (pun intended). The good news for the average reader is: you don't have to suffer from a terminal, progressive disease like addiction to embark upon the path of fierce and serious practice to unlock your full potential in service of the whole. No, like John and his team you are invited to cross the isolating addict /non-addict divide and simply join the community of integral practitioners beyond that.

    By founding his work on the groundbreaking Integral Theory work of Ken Wilber, John Dupuy arrives at the first truly holistic addiction treatment, that touches all the important bases, fully honoring (among others) traditional AA approaches, cutting-edge brain (and meditation) science, post-modern therapeutic techniques, work with the family and systemic factors, etc., etc. The breadth and depth of the Integral Recovery toolkit is truly breathtaking, just like the passion and compassion of the author, who's been in the trenches of this work for decades.

    From my background of spending over a decade in the Integral Movement, I see Integral Recovery as one of the few shining examples of putting Integral theory to practice in order to make a real difference in the world, in this case: literally saving lives. This is huge. And it is an inspiration to seriously apply integral to more fields of human endeavor. Let's roll up our sleeves and practice.

    John Dupuy shares his experiences and expertise in a very accessible and lucid style, deeply human and personal, full of witty quips, funny episodes, inspiring quotes, vivid metaphors and uplifting stories. It is a stimulating, surprising, educating and entertaining book.

    On a more personal note: John, I love you and you are one of my dearest friends (something I am really proud of), but I am sorry to say: your book on recovery from addiction is totally addictive! I laughed, I cried, I was heartbroken, inspired and I simply couldn't put your book aside. I can testify what you say about practice, because I have seen the powerful transformations in you over the years I know you. You walk your talk, more than any other integral teacher I've met so far. To me you're an example of a living bodhisattva, very human, but nevertheless dedicated to divine service with every fiber of your body. I am very grateful to have you as a friend and I am curiously looking forward to getting to know the next higher version of yourself - you totally rock!
