Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

For those with drug or alcohol addictions, arresting that dependency is, obviously, crucial for survival. But overcoming addiction's insidious effects on the body by taking charge of one's health is critical as well. Newport, a wellness professional and counselor with 25 years of experience, focuses on the "neglected stepchild" of recovery: basic wellness concepts that, he says, are often disregarded. Newport emphasizes that "taking it one step at a time" works for integrating a wellness-oriented lifestyle into recovery. Years of drinking and doing drugs produce an undernourished body that needs a decent nutritional foundation, which Newport covers in detail. Additionally, many former alcohol and drug addicts develop new addictions (to caffeine, nicotine or junk foods), and Newport discusses ways to prevent this from happening, including engaging in "moderate intensity physical activity," stress management and meditation. He outlines meaningful applications to accompany the spiritual dimension of wellness and recovery, and challenges readers to set long-term goals. Numerous resources, from literature to Web sites, will be of further assistance. This excellent book would be a fine supplement to any recovery program. (Jan.)

From the Inside Flap

"The Wellness-Recovery Connection is a breath of fresh air . . . In a simple to understand fashion Dr. Newport extends the spiritual principles introduced in 12-step programs to their natural conclusion—the wellness lifestyle through which one’s spiritual potential can be realized in everyday living." —Emmett E. Miller, M.D., author of Deep Healing

"Trying to recover from alcohol and drug addiction without utilizing the tools of wellness is like fighting with one hand tied behind one’s back. Yet it is astonishing how the many dimensions of wellness are often underutilized in the continuing care components of recovery programs across the country. Dr. John Newport corrects this oversight, and in doing so brings recovery within the reach of many more people." —Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words

This book has helped me tremendously! It has taught me things I was not aware of and also reminded me of things I had forgotten. I am very surprised it has helped me so much because I have been sober for 31 years. I found myself relaxing, as I read this book, simply by practicing the relaxing techniques I was reading about. I'll make these techniques a part of my daily life. I would recommend this book for anyone who is serious about their recovery.

I was't planning on becoming an alcoholic nor am I planning on becoming a vegetarian. I stick to going to meetings and a belief in a higher power.
