)-- Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed., publishes new book, "Get Sober Stay Sober: The Truth About Alcoholism," to provide alcoholics with the little known facts they need for successful recovery.
"Get Sober Stay Sober: The Truth About Alcoholism" provides an invaluable review of current 21st century knowledge about alcoholism and its successful treatment. Despite past decades of unrelenting failure rates among traditional programs, the author can legitimately offer new hope for stable, lifelong recoveries by finally addressing alcoholism's physical causes as well as its many effects," says Joan Mathews-Larson, Ph.D., Executive Director, Health Recovery Center.
Once a hopeless drunk and drug addict, crippled with uncontrollable cravings, anxiety attacks and depression, Cynthia Perkins achieved long-term uninterrupted sobriety with this holistic recovery approach that combines cutting-edge findings in neuroscience and nutrition with traditional psychology and a dash of unorthodox spirituality. As part autobiography and part self-help, Cynthia shares her truth as both a fellow alcoholic and a mental health professional. Learn more at:
"Get Sober Stay Sober: The Truth About Alcoholism," brings together for the first time the best from the worlds of science, psychology and spirituality which results in an innovative, comprehensive recovery approach that gets to the root of alcoholism and enables the alcoholic to achieve long-term sobriety that is free of cravings and relapse without AA, the 12 steps, religion or succumbing to the powerlessness concept.
Cynthia tells us, "Most alcoholics do not recover with the 12 Step Program, they die from their disease. Even when treatment is successful, alcoholics continue to struggle with constant cravings for a drink or a drug and endure frequent relapse.
Alcoholics Anonymous was formally developed in 1935 when very little was understood about the process of addiction and desperation was the driving force. Scientific research now tells us that the drive to self-medicate with alcohol, drugs, sex, food etc. lies in biochemistry, not a spiritual illness, weak will, mental disorders or character flaws. Successful recovery occurs when we restore balance to our biochemistry."
Cynthia Perkins, M.Ed., is a sobriety coach and a recovered alcoholic and drug addict with 21 years of uninterrupted sobriety. She holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's degree in counseling.
