"Learning about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) this
summer, and using this workbook in particular, helped me deepen my
recovery and broaden the foundation of safety and health that I am
looking for in sobriety. . . .Kelly Wilson opens himself up to the
reader using his own experiences as engaging illustrations of the
pain of addiction, but also as opportunities for personal growth. .
. .ACT and this workbook are helping me gain a much stronger sense
of freedom in recovery, a sense that I can deal with my mind and
have a lot of influence over my future."
