A proven plan to conquer substance abuse and addiction, from the physician director, professional and residential programs, Betty Ford Center
The disease of addiction affects 1 out of 10 people in the United States and is a devastating—and often fatal—illness. Now, from Dr. Harry Haroutunian, the Physician Director, Professional and Residential Programs, Betty Ford Center, comes a step-by-step plan with a realistic, one-day-at-a-time approach to a disease that so often seems insurmountable. With a focus on reclaiming the power that comes from a life free of dependency, Being Sober guides you through the many phases of addiction and recovery with a warm sense of humor and compassion, not judgment or overly “cultish” language.
This groundbreaking audiobook also addresses the growing face of substance abuse: the high-functioning addict, or someone who is still able to achieve personal and professional success even as he or she battles a drug or alcohol problem. Dr. Haroutunian tackles this provocative issue head-on, offering new insight into why you don’t have to “bottom out” to get help. Dr. Harry—as he is affectionately known by his patients—is a recovering alcoholic himself and knows firsthand the challenges of sobriety. His background and expertise in the field of alcohol and drug treatment give him a powerful edge and perspective that is unparalleled.
Using clear, straightforward language, Being Sober offers a proven path toward emotional sobriety and a rewarding new life based on gratitude, dignity, and self-respect.
