Smashwords Interview

Why did you write The Recovery Formula?
“I wrote the book because I saw so many addicts going round and round the cycle of treatment and relapse when it isn't necessary if you do things right.

“The problem is, when you go to rehab or treatment, no-one explains addiction or recovery to you. You're taught all these tips and given rules, but you have no understanding of why they're important. Or people try different treatments, never finding the one that works; again, because they aren't taught why certain things work for certain people.

“When I was trying to recover from alcoholism, there was no guide out there, explaining how to get clean and sober in a simple way. I see The Recovery Formula as a much-needed solution to that. It's the book I wish I had had at the start of my own journey.”
What is The Recovery Formula?
“There are certain things that make addiction treatments successful - I have picked out the essential pieces and devised a Formula that anyone can follow to get, and stay, sober.

“The Formula is essentially four things - Get Real, Get Committed, Get Held and Get Replacements. These are the fundamental building blocks of good recovery. The book goes into a lot of detail, with the pitfalls, myths and realities - because it is in the details that most addicts go wrong with recovery.”
