Publishers Description
"Abstinence from alcohol and other drugs is only the beginning of sobriety. It's the ticket to get into the theater, not the movie we are going to see." -- Passages Through Recovery

One of the most important things we learn in recovery is that there really is a way out of all the misery--if we know which way to go. But abstinence from alcohol and other drugs is just the beginning of our journey, not our destination. And, that journey can be a rough one if we don't know what lies ahead.

Based on the experiences of thousands of recovering men and women, "Passages Through Recovery" presents an action plan for preventing relapse, on that can help us understand how recovery works and what is needed to move from active addiction to sobriety.
Gorski's pioneering work describes six stages of recovery from chemical dependency and offers sound advice for working through the challenges of each stage--challenges that can create frustration and lead to relapse.

"Passages through Recovery" clearly demonstrates that sobriety is more than just healing the damage. "It's a way of thinking, acting, and relating to others,"Gorski writes, "that promotes continued physical, psychological, social, and spiritual health. The skills necessary for long-term sobriety are all directed at finding meaning and purpose in life."

Use this book as a compass in your recovery to help you stay on course.

Reviews - What do customers think about Passages Through Recovery: An Action Plan for Preventing Relapse?

By far the best!  Aug 31, 2006
If you work in the field of addiction run out and get every book Terry has written. He is simply the best. I would recommend his work to lay people who have substance abuse or recovery issues also. this book, as are all of his books, is indispensable if you run chemical dependency, family, PC 100 or CDIOP groups. There is a wealth of practical usable information. Also, this is the first book of it's kind that I have found that deals with the specific issues common to long term sobriety. Most books I come across deal with the first 2 years which is understandable. But how wonderful to find a book that specifically has a section on double digit (those with decades) sobriety. I can't recommend it enough.
 
Good   Sep 22, 2005
