The Recovery Formula

 The Recovery Formula: An Addict's Guide to Getting Clean & Sober Forever is due to be published in September 2012.

Are you tired of the guilt, shame and pain of addiction? Are you sick of the constant relapses? Do you want to know how to recover from addiction, guided by someone who has been there and done it?

The Recovery Formula is an essential guide for anyone who is addicted to alcohol or drugs and wants to do something about it. Having struggled as a serial relapser before achieving her own recovery, Beth Burgess shares the universal lessons she has learnt about what really works and what doesn't when it comes to getting clean and sober.

It will help you to understand your problem, to make decisions about treatment, to avoid relapse and to set yourself up for success from the start. The Recovery Formula is a framework that anyone can use to achieve sobriety as soon as they want to do something about it. Your recovery starts here.

With a Foreword by Professor David Clark, Director of Wired In To Recovery.
