Stuff to Help, Buy, Share

The RECOVERY books, conferences, podcasts, etc. on this page are recommendations from those who have put together some sober time. I hope they will be useful to you as well! When you click on some of the books below, you may be taken to information about the book with options of places to buy it. The links to NON-PROFITS (e.g. - Alcoholics Anonymous) will go to their Intergroup Office so that organization will make the profit. PLEASE feel free to send me any of your favorite RECOVERY resources to add so we can continue to build a great list to support people around the WORLD! Thank you so much!
