Addiction Recovery Handbook

The Church's Addiction Recovery Program: A Guide to Addiction Recovery and Healing can be used either in an organized addiction recovery group or by individuals working alone. Or, what can also be very effective, people may work through the book as companions, say a visiting teacher and someone she visits, or just two good friends who live across the street from one another. The idea of working in groups or a companions is to give people the support that can be so essential in overcoming addictive behavior, but that support can come without an organized addiction recovery group.
