Exploring the thoughts, beliefs and attitudes that affect feelings, behavior and actions.
The focus of this book is on the similarities between the Twelve Steps and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In a clear step-by-step fashion, the two processes are discussed and evaluated. What are often seen as opposing approaches are, upon close examination, found to have great similarities that bring them much closer and more in line than previously considered. Clear and practical examples outline the premise pursued, which is that a solution needs to cover all of the elements of addiction – the biological, psychological, and social. This thorough examination of CBT and the Twelve Steps provides a comforting and supportive accompaniment to anyone requiring further insight about the essence of addiction and therapy.

“I got into recovery 15 years ago after many years of chronic alcohol addiction. Recovery has given me the privilege to travel extensively over the past ten years working with recovery experts and doctors in the USA, helping and teaching in psychiatric hospitals and addiction centres in Africa, and prisons and rehabs in the UK. Connecting with many people from many different cultures has been the highlight of my recovery so far”. As a self published author John has been surprised to have sales of his previous books in over 13 countries with sales running into the thousands.
Living on the Isle of Wight John enjoys the countryside, nature, windsurfing and of course the company of his loving family.
