In this powerful book, Dr. Newport breaks down the complex principles of wellness, which can seem intimidating and out of reach for most, and gives readers a step-by-step guide for putting them into practice in their daily lives. Filled with exercises, goal-setting worksheets and inspirational tips, readers will be empowered to create their own personal blueprint for optimal health and personal fulfillment.
More specifically, The Wellness-Recovery Connection shows readers how to:

This groundbreaking book also fills a critical gap in the area of relapse prevention, as a growing body of evidence - including the author's own research - attests to the powerful benefits of a wellness-oriented lifestyle in successfully staying clean and sober. The Wellness-Recovery Connection is an essential guide for people in recovery and their families, and for treatment professionals.
