In Recover! he offers a holistic treatment plan. Based on the PERFECT Program(TM), his unique method that combines the best evidence-based treatments with cutting-edge meditation from the mindfulness movement, "Recover!" presents a life-transforming philosophy for overcoming self-destructive compulsions forever. It will teach readers how to think and live as a non-addict.
