Editorial Reviews

The author credibly presents an overview of the Twelve Steps and Traditions. There is a paucity of literature that uses an experiential approach to bridge the gap between a clinician's training and understanding of the spiritual aspects of the recovery program. Any clinician interested in addiction and recovery, or Twelve Step members, could benefit from this book.--------Weighted Numerical Score: 90 - 4 Stars!
