"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."
--Adam Gorman, PsyD, clinical psychologist, Albany, NY
"There is genius in this book. My reaction after reading it was I wanted to stand up and cheer. This is practical, brilliantly taught mindfulness brought to the service of relapse prevention. It is also a beautifully transcendent document. I hope this book has a huge readership and usage because it's going to save lives."
--John Dupuy, MA, author of Integral Recovery

"Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction takes the mystery out of treating addiction by providing a blueprint for connecting thoughts, feelings, behavior, and change. I plan to use this in my addiction counseling practice."
--Patrick McKiernan PhD, clinical director of Certified Counseling Services, Louisville, KY
"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."
