Addiction Recovery Books

Addiction Recovery Books

Recovery Books are very useful for those undergoing rehab. These helpful writings range from traditional recovery books, to quick guides on how to make the most of your rehabilitation experience, to easy-to-read memoirs that help addicts identify with other people and their addictions.

Choosing to enter rehab can be a very difficult decision for many. At times patients feel stressed, worried or alone in the very early stages of recovery. One of the best things to do in such a situation is for an addict to feel comfortable with himself, and realize that others in the world also share the same goals and interests. Reading book offering hope and advice is therapeutic and offers feelings of hope, courage, and understanding about one’s journey.

Here is a list of recovery books, all with the single goal of bringing you peace of mind and lifting your spirits. If you are interested in inspirational messages, guidelines for a successful recovery, or first-hand accounts by recovering addicts or family of recovering addicts, then this collection of books can be helpful in setting your addiction recovery goals and plans.

We take pride in helping addicts find books that are helpful in their journey of recovery. If you would like to have a book brought to our attention, one that you feel is beneficial to others, please e-mail us with the name and we will be happy to update our list.

We enjoy suggesting books which will help you through your journey to recovery. You can have your very own recovery book, one that will make you say to yourself, “There are many others who have rehabilitated in the past, led happy lives and made it through their darkest hours … and so can I.”
