It is nice to read a real rehab & recovery story, rather than it coming from a doctor who has never been in the patient’s shoes, like asking a male OBGYN what it feels like to give birth. Well written story about a tough youth experience, addiction, mental health and recovery. Good information about about relapse prevention! – Amazon Review
An Alcoholics Guide to Rehab & Life Afterwards
Craving Recovery is an open & honest account of alcoholism resulting from childhood trauma and how the disease of alcoholism impacted my life and my family’s. After decades of drinking, recovery was desired and thus I sought out the help needed to detox safely, to finally open up and address the issue that caused the excessive drinking and through the recovery process restored relationships and improved not only my life but everyone’s life around me.
Craving Recovery not only speaks to the alcoholic but also to the people dealing with a loved one with a drinking problem.
For the Alcoholic: Rehab is glamorized in the media and there are numerous myths and stigmas attached; allow me to take you through what it is actually like by way of my first-hand experience. Additionally, what does life after rehab look like; support groups, therapy, addressing your guilt & shame, identifying and dealing with the root cause of your drinking, alcohol cravings, triggers, your sober social life, relapse prevention, and living a happy and fulfilling life in sobriety.
For the loved one dealing with a problem drinker: Alcoholism is a family disease; I will walk you through the process of communicating with your loved one, intervention and available options. Additionally, I will address how to recognize the traits of an alcoholic, lying & withholding, support groups, and most importantly how sobriety can change the life of your loved one, your family and yours for the better.
