Memories are powerful things in anyone's life, but for those who are struggling with substance use disorders, these memories and connecting beliefs can be debilitating. As a teacher, clergy member, or therapist, in helping people overcome substance use disorders, you must address not only the role of drugs and alcohol in their lives but also the role of memories and how they reveal and influence feelings and behaviors.
While these memories are troubling to the person dealing with substance use disorders, they are also crucial to showing the way to recovery. As the individual recovers and faces the reasons for the problematic use of drugs or alcohol, he or she will necessarily learn new ways to think about these memories and incorporate them into a healthy life.
In blending neuropsychology with Individual Psychology, Soar like an Eagle provides research-based hope to those suffering from substance use disorders and strengthens their recovery through the use of brain mapping, neuroplasticity, positive intentions, and reorientation. Armed with the knowledge presented in this book, you can guide your clients, students, or parishioners through the necessary actions in their journey from their pain toward sobriety.
