Stuff to Help, Share, Buy

The RECOVERY online sources, 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!

“As a result of scientific research, we know that addiction is a medical disorder that affects the brain and changes behavior. We have identified many of the biological and environmental risk factors and are beginning to search for the genetic variations that contribute to the development and progression of the disorder. Scientists use this knowledge to develop effective prevention and treatment approaches that reduce the toll drug use takes on individuals, families, and communities.”
