Life on the Rocks – Finding Meaning in Addiction Recovery


Author: Peg O’Connor, PhD

This is the first book to address addiction and recovery from a western philosophical perspective, offering a powerful set of tools sharpened over millennia.   Aimed at treatment professionals as well as people newly sober or in long-term recovery, it introduces some of the core concepts and vexing questions of philosophy to help addicts and those affected by their addictions examine and perhaps transform the meaning they make of their lives.

Without assuming any familiarity with philosophy, Life on the Rocks illuminates issues all addicts and their loved ones face: self-identity, moral responsibility, self-knowledge and self-deception, free will and determinism, fatalism, the nature of God, and their relations to others.
