This addiction recovery workbook from clinicians Jamie Marich, PhD, and Stephen Dansiger offers skills to prevent relapse, enhance recovery, and understand how trauma impacts alcoholism, drug dependency, and even other types of addictions.
Working the Steps for the first time can feel scary and unfamiliar—and depending upon the experiences you’ve had at AA or NA, you may question whether the 12 Steps are right for you. Here, Marich and Dansiger help you get to the root of your addiction while offering skills and exercises for an inclusive recovery program.
Unlike some 12-Step programs, this workbook is open to all—regardless of your background, history, identity, or spiritual beliefs. It also recognizes that for most of us on recovery or sobriety journeys, each Step isn’t made to be worked through only once: this workbook is designed to support your individual needs, whether that’s practicing one step on a day-to-day basis, revisiting another at different times throughout your recovery process, or using the exercises as part of a yearly check-in.
The workbook begins with a self-care inventory, then moves through each of the 12 steps with prompts, meditations, journaling reflections, and body-based exercises. The authors also offer coping skills and an open-minded approach that acknowledges that your recovery is as unique as you are: one-size-fits-all doesn’t apply. Compassionate, trauma-responsive, and grounded in the latest behavioral and neuroscience research, this workbook is your go-to addiction recovery toolkit.
A Note From the Publisher

"Twelve Step recovery saved my life, and then EMDR therapy and other trauma work saved my life once again. For decades these have been seen as separate and apart, but now people in the recovery community and those who work in the addiction field are seeing more clearly that trauma and addiction are deeply linked. Jamie Marich and Stephen Dansiger have acknowledged, studied, written, taught and acted upon this knowledge extensively, and in Trauma and the 12 Steps Workbook, they add a tool that can save a lot of 12-step members a lot of pain and suffering in early recovery and beyond. Anyone in recovery could start their journey here or take another trip through the steps. I am adding this to my own personal resource list and for those I work with as an addiction professional. Much gratitude to Jamie and Steve for this offering!"
