"Beyond Addictions" is a Biblically-based, Christ-centered book that has been used in prison to successfully set men free from addictions. It is now available to everyone who wants to move beyond their addictions to experience new life in Christ.***** "Beyond Addictions" begins with a Biblical description of the problem, and directs you to the solution that is found in a practical, daily relationship with Jesus Christ. The book relies heavily upon the application of scripture; more than 200 passages are employed throughout to show you how God can set you free, and keep you free, from all addiction. Assignments are also included to enable you to apply the lessons learned in each chapter. Here are some comments from former students and others who are familiar with Beyond Addictions.***** "This course was instrumental in making a real change, transforming my thinking and my behavior. God used it to set me free in prison and to keep me free now that I'm on the outside.***** After re-reading the "Beyond Addictions" book, I realized how much of it I have incorporated into my daily life since my release two years ago. I heartily recommend it for anyone who truly wants to move beyond all addictions into a free and meaningful life."***** John D. Whitehead-- Beyond Addictions Graduate 2008***** "In 2002, I participated in the first Beyond Addictions class. It helped me understand who I was in Christ, which transitioned me from being a user of drugs and people to a worshiper of Jesus. As I began to understand who I was in Christ, the desire to worship Him grew, and the old lifestyle simply began to fall away.***** I encourage you to not just read but put into practice the contents of this book and you'll find that in worshiping Jesus, you'll truly find the 'good life.'"***** Jeremy Parker, Beyond Addictions Graduate 2002"***** Addictions are a mighty big problem for Christians and non-Christians alike, but the power of God is even mightier. In Psalm 119:9 David tells us how to live a clean life, 'How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.' "Beyond Addictions" shows you how to cleanse your life from the inside, as you apply the Word of God.***** God meant life to be lived. Some need a little extra help. I believe Beyond Addictions is that extra help, and I strongly recommend it."***** Rodney Finch, Senior Pastor, Calvary Chapel of Cary, NC***** "While serving as facility head of Dan River Prison Work Farm from 2003 to 2010 it was my pleasure to observe the development and growth of certain inmates involved with the Beyond Addictions study. The men routinely made the transition with biblical values into their daily practices, and carried the training forward. I received visits, calls and notes from released inmates who had participated in the program, and wanted to share success stories with me. The life choices taught and exampled in Beyond Addictions freed the men in many different ways."***** George Solomon, Regional Director, North Carolina Department of Corrections***** If you or someone you know has ever struggled with addiction, any addiction, then I urge you to read this book. Beyond Addictions provides hope for your future, and a solid foundation to re-build your life upon.*****Jeff Rudd

"The feeling was electric-energy humming through my body. I felt like blood was pouring into areas of my tissues that it had not been able to reach for some time. It was relieving and healing, subtler than the feeling from getting off on drugs, but it was detectable and lovely, and of course, there was no hangover, just a feeling of more ease than I could remember. I felt a warmth come over me similar to what I felt when I had done heroin, but far from the darkness of that insanity, this was pure light-a way through." - Tommy Rosen, on his first yoga experience Most of us deal with addiction in some form. While you may not be a fall-down drunk, anorexic, or a gambling addict, you likely struggle with addiction in other ways. Workaholism, overeating, and compulsively engaging with technology like video games, texting, and Facebook are also highly common examples. And if you don't suffer from addiction, chances are you know someone who does. Through more than 20 years of recovery and in working professionally with others, Tommy Rosen has uncovered core elements of recovery and healing, what he refers to as Recovery 2.0. In the book, he shares his own past struggles with addiction, and powerful, tested tools for breaking free from the obstacles that stand in the way of a holistic and lasting recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he has developed an innovative approach that includes • Looking at the roots of addiction; your family history and "Addiction Story" • Daily breathing practices, meditation, yoga, and body awareness • A healthy, alkaline-based diet to aid with detox, boost immunity, increase vitality, support your entire recovery, and help prevent relapse • Discovering your mission, living on purpose, and being of service to others Recovery 2.0 will help readers not only release their addictions, but thrive in their recovery.

She’s fought like hell to leave the past behind. Trix changed her name and her life when she got clean four years ago. Now, she has a new family and a job she loves—tending bar and dancing at the Broken Circle. As an O’Kane, she’s happy, untouchable. Until a nightmare from her old life tears her away from her home and drags her back to Hell—also known as Sector Five. He’s still living—and dying—in it. Losing Trix was the kick in the head Finn needed to get sober, but working as an enforcer for a man he hates is slowly crushing his soul. The only thing that keeps him going is his determination to destroy Sector Five from the inside. Then Trix comes back into his life—alive, in danger—and nothing else matters. Getting her home could be a suicide mission. The only thing deadlier is the old spark that flares to life between them. Soon, Finn and Trix are battling the one addiction neither of them ever managed to kick—each other. And it could cost them everything.

If you are a person who has struggled with an addiction, or a family member who is helplessly watching the slow death of a loved one from an addiction, or even a seasoned professional who is overwhelmed and frustrated over the chronic relapses of clients, here is a simple question to ask yourself if you are wondering whether this book is for you. Does a person have control over a relapse? If you answered yes, then this book is absolutely for you. This book is for you because the answer to this question is an emphatic NO!!! Why is the answer no? Addiction, like any other disease, follows a natural process. Once it starts, this process will continue its natural course that will eventually lead a person to a more deteriorated condition, certain pain and suffering, or, even worse, death. There are no exceptions to this natural process, unless, of course, this process is interrupted. The more important question that needs to be asked is: Does a person have control over their recovery? The answer to this question is an emphatic YES!!! The intent of this book is not so much to focus on the science of addiction, although this will be addressed, as much as it is on the science of recovery. Although the reader will better understand some of the basic neurobiological processes underlying addiction (It is just not genetics alone), the reader will also explore how these same neurobiological processes are essential to recovery. The contention, here, is that if there is a science of addiction, there must be a science of recovery. This book will explore the many facets of healing within the recovery process with particular emphasis on examining the role of our neurobiology and behavior. More importantly, it will give readers, whether a person suffering from an addiction, a distraught loved one, or a frustrated professional, insight and a blueprint as to what needs to be done for a successful recovery regardless of the disorder. Is relapse a part of recovery? Absolutely Not!!!

The Sober Leap helps recovering addicts take their recovery to the next level. Millions of women enter recovery from alcohol addiction with one goal in mind: to stay sober. They’re left to their own devices to “figure it out” from there, leaving them feeling lost, disenchanted, and susceptible to relapse. The Sober Leap invites recovering addicts to step into the light and thrive in recovery. Certified Health and Addiction Recovery Coach Noelle Van Vlierbergen provides practical wisdom to change the habits and behaviors that are holding readers back from showing up fully as a powerful, sober woman. With honesty and humor, Noelle shares her own experiences with recovery and introduces readers to eleven basic principles that will transform the mind, body, and soul. Reintroducing readers to the truths they’ve always known, but lost along the way, The Sober Leap is a call to action to let go of the past, embrace the present, and finally start living the life you were meant to live.

Beyond Addiction is an easily understood handbook providing both spiritual and practical guidelines to help anyone who wants to overcome addiction.We are all aware that the addiction problem in this country is growing exponentially. Unfortunately there are very few options offered to help the addict, their parents, spouses or pastors when confronted with those who are struggling. Nearly all recovery programs are either unaffordable or often not even available. Regrettably most books are written about addiction and not for the addict. Beyond Addiction was written to give parents, spouses and pastors a practical and inspirational tool to help the addict overcome the bondage of addiction. It is written specifically for the addict with simple but deeply spiritual insight as well as sound practical application. It is designed to show that change is possible through personal testimonies from former addicts and down to earth language that addicts understand. With simple and relevant illustrations Beyond Addiction shows what true spiritual life looks like and how it can be attained. It also guides the addict through the practical steps needed for success.The book covers everything from how to get involved in a small group to how to make a plan, fighting euphoric recall, emotions, where to live, work etc. It is a simple yet thorough guide designed to take the addict from bondage and confusion into spiritual renewal and structured sobriety. The concise straightforward chapters are formatted to keep the addicts attention and be easily understood.

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER More people than ever before see themselves as addicted to, or recovering from, addiction, whether it be alcohol or drugs, prescription meds, sex, gambling, porn, or the internet. But despite the unprecedented attention, our understanding of addiction is trapped in unfounded 20th century ideas, addiction as a crime or as brain disease, and in equally outdated treatment. Challenging both the idea of the addict's "broken brain" and the notion of a simple "addictive personality," The New York Times Bestseller, Unbroken Brain, offers a radical and groundbreaking new perspective, arguing that addictions are learning disorders and shows how seeing the condition this way can untangle our current debates over treatment, prevention and policy. Like autistic traits, addictive behaviors fall on a spectrum -- and they can be a normal response to an extreme situation. By illustrating what addiction is, and is not, the book illustrates how timing, history, family, peers, culture and chemicals come together to create both illness and recovery- and why there is no "addictive personality" or single treatment that works for all. Combining Maia Szalavitz's personal story with a distillation of more than 25 years of science and research,Unbroken Brain provides a paradigm-shifting approach to thinking about addiction. Her writings on radical addiction therapies have been featured in The Washington Post, Vice Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, in addition to multiple other publications. She has been interviewed about her book on many radio shows including Fresh Air with Terry Gross and The Brian Lehrer show.
