The Best Relapse Prevention is Personal Fulfillment
I actually heard about Full Recovery through the grapevine at 12-Step meetings.. A few people in the room had set-up study a group to go through the Full Recovery program on a weekly basis (like a Bible Study Group). Hearing this kind of buzz definitely piqued my interest, so I bought a copy to see what it was all about.
First off... It was not what I was expecting... This book is a great read for anybody who wants more out of life... Not just alcoholics and addicts(though it speaks to those in recovery directly)... The way the program is designed is very effective. It starts off by providing a system for examining where your life is and how it got there, which makes the program unique to each person. Then it provides psychologically rooted questions, that gets to the root why you directed your life in that way. Once you see where you are, it provides a clear road map for moving forwarded, except this time you are armed with your own personal keys to unlocking your new potential in sobriety... The last part of the program provides real world practical action steps on how to immediately relaunch your life based on your own new self-realized goals, dreams, and personal strengths.
Although it is a substantial book, it is actually a fairly easy read and keeps your interest with real life stories of success and failure in recovery (including the author's own personal story of the trials and tribulations in recovery). I am actually reading it again for the third time!
A truly outstanding book that I would recommend to anyone... especially if you, or someone you love, has battled addition and is now ready to relaunch their life and make a comeback. Success can be the best relapse prevention!
