The Journey Of Addiction by Jennifer Hobbs

People in recovery from a substance addiction characterize the journey of recovery as a time of significant transformation, suffering, and even spiritual growth. This researcher used the lens of transpersonal psychology to reframe the addiction recovery process as a meaning making journey during which unique life lessons are taught and personal spirituality is defined through this human experience of suffering. This research approached the subject of defining spirituality in recovery with a qualitative research approach, honoring the growth potential wrapped inside the life stories of 8 participants whom have lived with an addiction and have maintained abstinence for over 2 years. Much of the research contained in this study draws from their stories, the field of transpersonal psychology, Buddhism, Viktor Frankl, spiritual literature, and mainstream psychology. This research project looked into the lives of 8 people who have suffered through an addiction and lived to tell about it, people who have come to view their addiction as a gift from spirit wrapped in suffering.
