A Step-By-Step Guide To Long-Term Recovery From Addiction


by Howard P. Goodman

Yes, You Can Stay Sober!
If you’re ready—or know someone who’s ready—to achieve and maintain sobriety, here’s an approach that
will work. Unlike other books on recovery, The Staying Sober
Handbook is unique because it…

…stands upon a bedrock of personal experience plus a broad base of the most advanced findings in science,
technology, and clinical practice.

…provides a wealth of physical, emotional, mental & spiritual techniques and resources for all
involved: addict, family, friends and clinicians.

...is built on a new paradigm in addiction treatment that recognizes addiction as a chronic, progressive brain condition—a persistent medical
ailment that can be managed.

…contains all 24 sobriety tools, assembled over nine years of real-life wisdom and experience from
hundreds of people and thousands of hours of hard work, fine-tuning,
and refinement.

…presents the unique S.O.B.E.R. Action Plan, a step-by-step self-designed program you can rely on
to stay on track and is free of guilt-producing rules and restrictions.

…delivers information, action steps, workable exercises, and, most importantly, genuine
experience-based encouragement to anyone involved in any phase of addiction and recovery.

Written by a therapist who has himself navigated the path through addiction and into long-term
recovery, Staying Sober is an intuitively conceived and brilliantly executed presentation.

If you’re thinking about getting sober, this book will show you that you can do it and how to get there.
If you’re sober and want to strengthen your resources for staying that way, this will provide
the support you need. If you’re a family member or loved one of
someone suffering from addiction, your life is affected, too—big time—and this book can restore
stability and sanity. And if you are a clinician or therapist, you will find solid ideas for
amplifying the effectiveness of your practice with addicts.
