Addiction to Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I was excited to receive a signed copy of his book. (Disclaimer) Addiction To Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential should be a required book to read for all who come into recovery by any means. The book, part guide, part resource, and part personal experiences, strength, and shares hope of the Author, David McCauley. It explains in words and teaches others the skills to apply in their recovery on how to interrupt the cycle of addiction, and the tools needed every day to attain long-term recovery. Even though it is a book and guide, it reads like a memoir; the chapters and titles are laid out and easy to read. David's writing style is unique. The goal I was looking for in this book was to learn more wellness and live a more authentic recovery life of the mind, body, and spirit. There are many paths to tapping into your spirituality, and I am not talking a 12-step higher power spiritual journey. It is not the choice as David feels and I do as well. This book is a testament to this fact. But? Whatever works for you. And it truly is a new age form of recovery by learning David's inner self-work method that works! I am talking the inner sense of self-spiritual power. As David shares in his book, that seed and spiritual power we all have in each of us with the ability to turn our lives around and from the depths of despair and destruction to happy, productive being. No Spoilers, but my favorite chapters I got so much out of where; "Self and Soul Chapter 6, The Resilient Self and Spiritual Path Chapter 9, and Chapter 12." You can learn from a major relapse with more awareness before and after a binge as David did and is part of his experience. The Prolog/Dedication is"touching," and it is important to mention this book is also a great read for family, loved ones and friends to get an understanding of addiction and the process of recovery that their loved one needs to go through to gain longevity in recovery. "Hate the addiction, not The Addict." Family needs insights of what an addict goes through starting the recovery process. This book covers those goals and a great family reference. The book for me was a soul-searching journey to see the inner work that needs to be done in processing any old haunting pain and hurt in life as I feel is missing in many 12-step programs and forms of recovery and the book shares what needs to be done and how. A must read and highly suggest this book! Catherine Lyon, In Recovery Magazine Coulmnist
