Our journal/DVD set applies the latest scientific findings about successful recovery, shares the collective wisdom of others in recovery, and draws from the latest in relapse prevention thinking and practices.Each journal page includes a daily educational passage, a meditation, and space for writing personal reflections. The DVD, facilitated by best-selling author and recovery advocate William Cope Moyers, delves into first-year issues as encountered through the real-life experiences of eight individuals in recovery. Approachable, engaging, and research-based, "A New Day, A New Life" is appropriate and effective for patients just completing an addiction treatment program as well as individuals who have not had the opportunity to receive treatment.It draws from the latest scientific findings and research about everyday ways to build and sustain recovery. It identifies roadblocks recovering people can anticipate during their first year. It shares effective recovery practices (creating safe routines, developing a support network). It explains the importance of Twelve Step fellowship, meetings, and sponsorship. It addresses spirituality and how recovery includes caring for one's spiritual self.
