“As a clinical psychologist working in the addiction field, I see, every day, the glaring need for effective tools for my clients to avoid relapse. Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction is the resource addiction professionals have been waiting for. It explains relapse as the complex behavior it is, and offers simple yet brilliant explanations and exercises to not only understand cravings, but also combat them. It is my hope that this book becomes part of every treatment center’s approach to preparing their clients for lifelong sobriety.”

“Ongoing advances in neuroscience now confirm undeniably that addiction involves the neural activity of the brain as much as the physiology of the body and the emotional state of the inner life. Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction integrates each of these into an accessible and highly effective tool for recovery, one that will be useful for a lifetime. Every day, over five hundred people die from addiction. This is a book that may save your life.”
