No matter what your road to recovery looks like, Dummies is on your side

Addiction and Recovery For Dummies gives you the tools you need to identify and face addiction in yourself or a loved one, while working towards a healthy and realistic approach to recovery. This book offers a compassionate, unbiased, and non-judgmental guide to evaluating and overcoming addiction. You'll learn to identify the range of addiction levels, the various types (including substance and non-substance), and the possible causes of addiction. An expert author guides you through the range of addiction treatment philosophies and approaches, including twelve-step programs, other in- and outpatient programs, and teen treatments. We'll also look at common recovery roadblocks, so you're prepared to overcome whatever hurdles your recovery process brings. Medications, therapeutic communities, self-help groups, long-term recovery strategies--it's all in here.

  • Learn the signs of addiction and identify the most appropriate treatments
  • Gain advice on offering help to friends or family members struggling with addiction
  • Discover available recovery supports, including groups and medications
  • Understand the media and cultural factors that encourage addiction, and how to avoid them

Updated with the latest treatment options, Addiction & Recovery For Dummies is a valuable resource for those on a recovery journey, and a support guide for the 45 million people who are directly impacted by addiction.
