Description

Opiate abuse continues to be a major health problem in America. Tom Diffenderfer is a licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor (LADAC), with over 20 years of experience helping individuals and families recover from opiate addiction. Tom is the owner of The Recovery Consulting Service private counseling agency in Murfreesboro, Tn. Recovery Consulting Service collaborates with opiate replacement medication prescribers to offer a unique recovery option for those suffering from Opioid Use Disorder. This workbook provides information about opiate addiction, and also about the process of recovery and becoming well again. "Addiction is a complex condition, however, recovery is achievable. The goal is to learn how to enjoy life again without abusing alcohol and drugs." Some of the topics addressed in the book are: Co-occurring disorders, cognitive reframing, enjoyable sober activities, relationships, triggers, relaxation for anxiety, recovery literature and boundaries. When you stop taking the opiates of your choice you have made a great first step in regaining control of your life. Counseling is a critical component of effective treatment. Taking medicine alone rarely achieves long-term recovery success without ongoing counseling.show more
