This website is dedicated to persons in recovery from alcoholism, drug addiction and other addictive disorders - and their family members - together with addiction treatment professionals.

The materials highlighted in this website draw upon Dr. John Newport’s groundbreaking book The Wellness-Recovery Connection: Charting Your Pathway to Optimal Health While Recovering From Alcoholism and Drug Addiction.
As you are well aware, chemical dependency is a serious disease with devastating consequences. Alcoholics and addicts whose diseases go untreated suffer major health consequences - including severe damage to their livers, hearts and other vital organs - often dying decades before their time. What you may not be aware of is the fact that millions of people in recovery - perhaps the majority - also shortchange themselves of years of joyful living as a result of their nicotine addiction, compulsive over-eating, junk food addiction and other self-destructive behaviors they carry with them into their recovery.
Fortunately, you can use the tools of wellness to take charge of your health and strengthen your recovery. A wellness lifestyle and recovery from chemical dependency go hand in hand. By embracing a wellness lifestyle, you will experience the many joys of recovery in “full spectrum Technicolor”!
