"Dr. Peele's writings and teachings have prompted me to look beyond the flashy headlines and the majority position as being overly simplistic and often wrong. Only in this way can we help drug users, render treatment more effective, and create positive drug policies."Carl Hart, Ph.D., Columbia University Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, author of High Price
"Stanton Peele has long been at the forefront of the battle to understand addictions and eliminate the twin myths that addicts are powerless over their addictions and that they have a lifelong 'brain disease.' In Recover!, he has taken another crucial step toward freeing us from these prejudicial, disempowering misconceptions while truly helping people suffering with addiction."--Lance Dodes, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School (retired); coauthor, The Sober Truth
"At a time when addiction is being trumpeted as a 'brain disease,' Peele slashes through the hyper-medicalized rhetoric to get to the human core of addiction and recovery. This acutely insightful and compassionate book is required reading for anyone struggling with an overwhelming habit."--Sally Satel, MD, coauthor of Brainwashed: The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience; lecturer, Yale University School of Medicine
"In Recover!, Stanton Peele and Ilse Thompson offer a blueprint to help addicts cope with their triggers, from loneliness and feeling unworthy, anxious, and overwhelmed. Recover! focuses on what's right in the addict's life, and adding to it. It's a hopeful, tangible set of tools designed to give power back to the addict--not give it up."--Gabrielle Glaser, author of the New York Times bestseller Her Best-Kept Secret: Why Women Drink--And How They Can Regain Control
"Recover!...provides an astonishing array of resources, neatly organized into accessible and sensible tasks, and a final chapter for coping with unexpected problems. In this book you will find guidance on everything you need to address in recovery. Peele writes as if he were a close friend, explaining important concepts carefully and with genuine concern that you truly understand them."--Tom Horvath, Ph.D., ABPP; President, SMART Recovery(R) and Practical Recovery; Past President, American Psychological Association's Division on Addictions
"Probably the world's most notable figure in addiction studies, Stanton Peele has written another great book. Recover! really is a self-help book. Unlike most of what you read, it teaches you to help yourself, rather than telling you to rely on a treatment system because helping oneself is impossible. Stanton's work assisted my recovery many years ago, and he can help you now."--Peter Ferentzy, Ph.D., author of Dealing with an Addict: What You Need to Know if Someone You Care for Has a Drug or Alcohol Problem

I am not an advocate of the 12 step disease model of addiction and neither is Dr. Peele. The 12 steps were like reading a foreign language for me therefore making it impossible to shift the underlying issues that prompted my addictive behavior. SMART Recovery (www.smartrecovery.org) is often referred to by Dr Peele as a complimentary recovery resource. SMART Recovery as is Dr Peele's work founded in science and psychology. I find this model speaks to me in a language I comprehend and have made enormous personal strides. Currently I am an On Line Message Board Volunteer for SMART and will be starting a F 2 F (face to face) meeting in Stroudsburg PA at the Monroe County Library on Route 611 beginning the 1st Saturday of the month this April. Meetings will be held the 1st and the 4th Saturday of the month from 3:00 -4:30 pm.
