Book Study Groups

1. Book Study Group I – Informal     (Free)

We encourage local groups of people in recovery, as well as recovery coaches, counselors, sponsors, and others to host their own informal Book Study Groups using The Recovery Book and My Life in Recovery.

My Life in Recovery, in 12 sessions, guides readers through The Recovery Book with reading assignments, homework questions, discussion topics, journaling prompts, and personal exercises. In the process, participants learn about addiction and recovery and develop their own personalized, detailed My Life in Recovery Plans for moving through the Recovery Zones and thriving in sobriety for a lifetime.


2. Book Study Group II – Registered    (Free)

Registered Book Study Groups receive:

  • A set of pre-written homework/class reminder emails to send to your group each week
  • A discount code for $2 off the My Life in Recovery workbook
  • Access to the private My Life in Recovery Facebook group, where you can chat with Dr. Mooney and other people in recovery


3.  Book Study Group III – Enhanced    ($)

Enhanced Book Study Groups receive:

  • All of the benefits of Registered Book Study groups
  • Plus, two live, one-hour video meetings with Dr. Mooney for your group members. These meetings are typically held after Session 3 and Session 8, after participants have spent some time with the material and have questions they’d like to ask of Dr. Mooney. (Additional video meetings can be arranged on a fee-per-visit basis.)

The basic My Life in Recovery Workshop can be customized to meet the needs of your group. We can customize the format (a shorter series of video meetings, on-site weekend workshops, etc.) as well as the content (focusing on teenagers, women, airline pilots, medical professionals, and other groups).


3. My Life in Recovery Workshop III – Group Guide Training     ($)

This workshop introduces counselors and others to the Recovery Zone System and the My Life in Recovery continuing care workbook and trains them in how to use it with their own groups of people in recovery.
