12 Step Workbook: Recovery from Many Addictions (Paperback)
Compiled by a trained therapist in recovery, this workbook will allow you to deal individually with common issues in recovery. The basic principals of many of the popular twelve step programs are combined into one easy text. It provides a method of working the twelve steps of these programs through a series of open-ended questions, thoroughly covering the addictions facing our society today - alcohol, drugs, gambling, anger, food, relapse, and people, places, & things. This workbook would benefit anyone suffering from any of these destructive behaviors.
Mr. Peterson is a licensed chemical dependency counselor. He initiated a number of special techniques and programs in the Texas prison system to assist inmates in recovery issues, not only alcohol and drugs, but gambling, food and other addictions. He found that despite all of the recovery programs around, all of the self-help books, accessible therapists and programs, the ordinary person in recovery, and sponsors, have trouble finding complete, useable and trustworthy step guides to work through privately and successfully. His autobiography will be published soon, describing some of these techniques, while explaining the search for meaning in his life. He currently lives in Texas and still works with people in recovery.
