Description - Creative Recovery by Eric Maisel

This is a complete programme for addiction recovery specifically designed for the creative person. The authors show readers how they can use their own innate creative abilities at each stage of the recovery process to secure behaviour change for long-lasting recovery. They also present the particular challenges that self-identified creative people face with substance abuse and how they can use their creativity in the service of their recovery.The book presents the relationship between creativity and recovery in a few main ways: it explains the biological and development risks unique to creative people; it shows readers how their personality traits, such as imagination, can help inform the recovery process; it shows how readers can approach their recovery in much the same way they approach their art - with regularity, honesty, commitment, and so on; and, it presents exercises to promote and engage readers in the creative and expressive arts in the service of recovery.
For writers, artists, musicians, and creators in every field, this book offers a clear picture of the relationship between creativity and addiction and lays out a programme that creative people can follow to live a fully creative and addiction-free life.
