Rational Recovery from Alcoholism by Jack Trimpey

Rational Recovery from Alcoholism

Description : THE SMALL BOOK is a no-nonsense, get-better-now directive to addicts who want a better life. No "higher power" is necessary to recover from alcoholism or other drug dependence, using this bold, new approach to addiction. THE SMALL BOOK, taking issue with 'The Big Book' of AA, is the core volume for members of the international network of Rational Recovery (RR) groups, founded by author Jack Trimpey, LCSW. It is a comprehensive guide to rational sobriety that directs addicts toward complete recovery through abstinence & the rational-emotive therapy (RET) of Albert Ellis. In his Introduction , Dr. Ellis says, "One of the very best. Therapeutically, it is unusually sound." Self-inspired recovery is made possible through "voice recognition," whereby the addict becomes vigilant for thoughts supporting further use of alcohol or drugs. These ideas are disputed by the addict, & the locus of control is found within. Trimpey discourages the self-label "codependent" but many people are so dependent on addicts (for love or approval) that self-interset is overshadowed. The chapter, "To the Professionals," is a signal for change in AA-dominated addiction care system.
