Resources: Connections

It isn't possible, in a booklet of this length, to do much more than skim the surface of some important recent advances in addiction research and a few techniques of personal growth and discovery.

For this reason, we hope Total Recovery will serve as a point of departure for a much deeper -- and much longer lasting-independent investigation on your part.

We also hope that you'll find the following resources (listed in no particular order) useful in continuing your work in recovery -- and expanding your journey through life.

Just don't spend all your time looking for yourself in a book.

You're too important to the rest of us out here.
