When clinical social worker Jack Trimpey introduced the concepts of Rational Recovery in 1986, it marked a major breakthrough in the field of alcohol and drug addiction. More than a philosophy or therapy, and not dependent on spiritual beliefs, Rational Recovery offers an aggressive self-help program to take charge of one's behavior immediately. Now this proven process is made available in this unique, user-friendly instruction guide.
From the Back Cover More than a philosophy or therapy - and not dependent on spiritual beliefs or psychology - Rational Recovery offers an unprecedented approach to alcoholism, problem drinking, and drug addiction known as the Addictive Voice Recognition Technique, or AVRT. Now, for the first time, the keys to this proven recovery process are available in a practical, user-friendly instructional guide. AVRT is an aggressive self-recovery program that shows you exactly how to take control of your addictive behavior now - and how to recover totally through planned abstinence. Rational Recovery refutes the concept of alcoholism as a disease and brings new hope to those who have been discouraged by traditional approaches to addiction. You will learn that within each substance abuser hides a Beast that craves its addiction. By following the simple logic of AVRT and putting into practice what you learn, you can defeat your Beast and remain sober - effortlessly - for the rest of your life.
