More than 20 million people in the U.S. are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Many are trying to get sober and build a new life in recovery. But recovery is about so much more than just getting sober.
For many people, recovery means learning how to stay sober, while also repairing relationships, restoring physical and mental health, and picking up the pieces of an education or career. It can all be overwhelming for someone who is newly sober and just trying to get through one day at a time.
My Life in Recovery is a 12-session workbook that guides readers through developing a complete, personalized plan for staying sober, avoiding relapse, and living in recovery. It is used in conjunction with The Recovery Book: Answers to All Your Questions About Addiction and Alcoholism and Finding Health and Happiness in Sobriety, the award-winning “Bible of recovery” by Al J. Mooney, M.D., Catherine Dold, and Howard Eisenberg.

The Recovery Book provides an easy-to-follow road map—the Recovery Zone System—for building a new life in recovery, slowly but surely. The Recovery Zone System gives clear guidelines on when and how to address all aspects of life in recovery—addiction treatment, fellowship activities, sober living, relationships, recreation, education, career, finances, and physical and mental health.
My Life in Recovery, in 12 sessions, gently guides readers through The Recovery Book with reading assignments, homework questions, discussion topics, journaling prompts, and personal exercises. In the process, readers learn about addiction and recovery and develop their own personalized and detailed plans for moving through the Recovery Zones and thriving in sobriety—for a lifetime.
My Life in Recovery can be used as a 12-week lesson plan or self-paced program. Recovery professionals, peer counselors, sponsors, and individuals in recovery will all find it to be an immensely useful and practical tool for building a strong and solid recovery.
Of note: the Recovery Zone System works hand-in-hand with the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, but it can be used with any recovery program or treatment plan. Those who get into recovery with the help of medication assisted treatment, and those who have shied away from Twelve Step and abstinence-focused programs, will also find it to be a very useful “on-ramp” to building a lifetime of recovery.
