"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

The combination of Mindfulness, and the concentration on honoring your most deeply held values, is exactly what I needed. It's not so much about "stopping" your addictive behavior, but rather displacing it with those things most meaningful to you.
