Bellingham, WA, October 08, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Deciding to quit drinking is an important step for those who abuse alcohol. This book is a powerful tool for anyone who wants to gain sobriety on his own and pursue “a forward-going approach to recovery and to become excited, rather than depressed, about life without alcohol,” the author writes. T. Christopher Portman goes beyond standard treatments to provide a practical, self-directed guide to sobriety and a better quality of life through a personalized recovery template that addresses each person’s needs. Portman helps drinkers focus on going forward, providing a forward-facing template for recovery, powerful strategies to prevent relapses and the motivation to reinvent their life on their own.
The New Template for Recovery, published by Dog Ear Publishing, draws on Portman’s more than three decades of helping thousands of people with alcohol problems. His approach breaks the process down into logical areas of recovery. Alcohol abusers can learn how bad their alcohol use problem is, how to safely manage withdrawing from alcohol, the pros and cons of AA and standard treatment programs and the effects of psychological and physical addiction. This guide also details “quitting vs. recovery,” emotional recovery, repairing and starting relationships, career recovery, philosophical/spiritual recovery and understanding relapse. Instead of abusers fearing to give up alcohol, the book aims to liberate them.
Author T. Christopher Portman earned a doctorate at the University of Oregon. He lives in Bellingham, Wash., where his practice focuses on treating addictions and related mental health and relationship issues. Portman has directed both outpatient and inpatient treatment programs and taught addiction courses and seminars in the Pacific Northwest.
