“For an alcoholic, telling them to stop drinking is like telling someone to stop breathing,” says Beth Burgess. “They just can't do it unless they follow some very clear guidance. Unfortunately, there is nothing out that that explains how to recover in a clear and simple way.
“It's all very well to bundle someone off to rehab or meetings, but if they don't know why they're doing it, it's almost bound to fail - which is why you see addicts going in and out of rehab time and time again.”
In The Recovery Formula, Beth reveals the truth about long-term addiction recovery, after studying the successes of different treatment methods.
“When I first stopped drinking, I did loads of different things to try and recover. I was very determined, but I became a serial relapser all the same. It was because no-one really explained to me what the point of it was or how to follow treatments that would actually suit me,” Beth explains.
“The beauty of The Recovery Formula is that it lets you choose your own treatment, but it explains what the vital ingredients of recovery are and how you can make treatment choices based on them,” Beth says. “I have written the book I wish I had had at the start of my own journey to recovery. This information could help millions of people suffering from addiction to drink or drugs.”
It seems that top addiction professionals agree, with endorsements already provided by the CEO of the Welsh Drug & Alcohol Council, the Directors of recovery community WiredIn and Dr Robert LeFever, who founded the first ever UK rehab and has written 26 books.
The Recovery Formula: An Addict's Guide to Getting Clean & Sober Forever combines the story of Beth's own recovery and the lessons she learnt, with a four-part formula any addict can follow to achieve sobriety and start working on their recovery.
The book is due to be published on 24th September 2012 by Eightball Publishing. ISBN: 978-0957321700.
