An inclusive, research-based guide to working the 12 steps: a trauma-informed approach for clinicians, sponsors, and those in recovery. Step 1: You admit that you're powerless over your addiction. Now what? 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) have helped countless people on the path to recovery. But many still feel that 12-step programs aren't for them: that the spiritual emphasis is too narrow, the modality too old-school, the setting too triggering, or the space too exclusive. Some struggle with an addict label that can eclipse the histories, traumas, and experiences that feed into addiction, or dismisses the effects of adverse experiences like trauma in the first place. Advances in addiction medicine, trauma, neuropsychiatry, social theory, and overall strides in inclusivity need to be integrated into modern-day 12-step programs to reflect the latest research and what it means to live with an addiction today. Dr. Jamie Marich, an addiction and trauma clinician in recovery herself, builds necessary bridges between the 12-step's core foundations and up-to-date developments in trauma-informed care. Foregrounding the intersections of addiction, trauma, identity, and systems of oppression, Marich's approach treats the whole person--not just the addiction--to foster healing, transformation, and growth. Written for clinicians, therapists, sponsors, and those in recovery, Marich provides an extensive toolkit of trauma-informed skills that: • Explains how trauma impacts addiction, recovery, and relapse • Celebrates communities who may feel excluded from the program, like atheists, agnostics, and LGBTQ+ folks • Welcomes outside help from the fields of trauma, dissociation, mindfulness, and addiction research • Explains the differences between being trauma-informed and trauma-sensitive; and • Discusses spiritual abuse as a legitimate form of trauma that can profoundly impede spirituality-based approaches to healing.

A fresh resource to help those in recovery from addiction find their own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness. For those of us in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps offers a fresh approach to developing our own spiritual path through the Buddhist practice of mindfulness, or bringing one's awareness to focus on the present moment. We can revisit each of the Twelve Steps, exploring the interplay of ideas between mindfulness and Twelve Step traditions--from the idea of living "one day at a time" to the emphasis on prayer and meditation--and learn to incorporate mindfulness into our path toward lifelong sobriety.Through reflections, questions for inquiry, and stories from Buddhist teachers and others who practice mindfulness in recovery, Mindfulness and the 12 Steps will help us awaken new thinking and insights into what it means to live fully--body, mind, and spirit--in the here and now.

Well-intentioned people, such as Bono and John Lennon, have for years implored us to stop killing each other in much the same manner family members have begged alcoholics to stop drinking. Perhaps we are addicted to war and violence and, like alcoholics, we need more than to simply stop; we needed to find a new design for living. The 12 Steps have been instrumental in changing the lives of over 3 million alcoholics in over 77 countries, regardless of religious faith. Those who once knew only chaos, pain and suffering have discovered peace, as a result of these Steps. Consider the Steps as a recipe for peace. Should they fail to produce the desire results we will refund your misery and you may return to killing at your leisure.

What does a codependent say to his mate when he wakes up? "Good morning, how am I?" --Overheard at a Codependents Anonymous meeting Throughout the world today, more than two million alcoholics and hundreds of thousands of drug addicts, compulsive overeaters, sex addicts, compulsive gamblers, codependents, and other addicts abstain from their addiction, having found a new life by practicing the 12-step program of recovery developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Over the years, their practices have evolved into a way of life--the 12-Step Culture. "I don't remember my first meeting, but I've been told that I talked for a really long time." --Mary, a member of Narcotics Anonymous AA to Z is the first book to document the richness and diversity of the lives of recovering people and to provide an encyclopedic look at this unique subculture. Less self-help than enlightenment and entertainment, AA to Z is comprised of real-life stories of recovering addicts as well as an "addictionary" of recovery terminology. Everything from the well-known slogan "One Day at a Time" to more esoteric terms like "pigeon" (a lovingly insulting term for a newcomer to the program) and "Wharf Rats" (sober Deadheads) is explained with clarity, insight, and humor. "How it works, you ask--slowly and well." --Cooper, a member of Alcoholics Anonymous Conversational, witty, and engaging, AA to Z is a must-have for all 12-step participants and their loved ones, and it offers the uninitiated a fascinating firsthand look at one of the most influential yet least-documented cultural movements of our time.

Chronic pain is often a complex condition that fails to respond adequately to medical treatments alone. Successful management requires integrated treatment approaches such as those offered by nationally recognized comprehensive pain programs. For those who do not have access to these programs, this book offers steps to help create an alternative treatment path that includes evidence-based medical treatments, physical modalities, counseling, self-care education and alternative approaches. This book is a resource for not only for those who suffer with chronic pain but for their families and healthcare providers. It includes information about interventional pain management procedures, medications, psychological treatments, physical therapies, alternative and complementary approaches. The book also address the risk of addiction to opioid medications. Each chapter includes specific action steps to help individuals determine the types of treatments that might best meet their needs. This book also includes an updated version of the author's previously published 12-Step Chronic Pain recovery guide. The 12-Steps are intended to help individuals recover from the emotional suffering that so often accompanies chronic pain. The 12-Step approach presented in this book draws upon the rich tradition of other 12-Step programs and of cognitive behavioral therapy. For those who have failed traditional medical treatments, such as medications, surgery, and spinal injections, these Steps offer hope for a better future with little, if any, risk. They offer a solution to problems that contribute to pain suffering—lack of trust, fear, worry, blame, isolation, and resentment. They provide a path for recovery from suffering—a path that leads to trust, honesty, reconciliation, peace and joy. What do experts have to say about Chronic Pain: A Way Out?"A holistic approach based on solid clinical evidence. Patients and medical care professionals alike can read and learn. Highly recommended" –Fernando S. Branco, M.D., FAAPMR. Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Pain Management and Addiction Medicine. Medical Director, Rosomoff Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center and Brucker Biofeedback Center, Miami, FL “No one can be excluded from the risk of chronic pain. Dr. Colameco's book is an educational tool that needs to be read by everyone regardless of his or her current experience of pain; an important addition to the pain literature.”—J. David Sinclair, MD, FRCP (C), DABPM. Anesthesiologist, Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada), Diplomate of the American Board of Pain Medicine, Independent Consultant for the Management of Chronic Pain, Seattle, WA “In Chronic Pain: A Way Out, Dr. Colameco combines current, evidence-based medical information with proven spiritual principles that have saved the lives of millions of suffering addicts. The practical exercises provide a road map to improve lives--not just for patients, but for all of those affected by chronic pain.” --Christopher Johnston, MD, ABFM, ABAM.

In December 2012, the U.S. Department of Labor classified 12.2 million persons as officially unemployed. But that's only the tip of the iceberg. Almost 8 million folks were working part time involuntarily and another 6.8 million had simply stopped looking for work. Neither of these latter two groups--almost 27 million people--is included in the official count of the unemployed released on the first Friday of every month. Statistics like these almost make you want to throw your hands up and scream, "There's no way out!" But in A Way Out of No Way: The Economic Prerequisites of the Beloved Community, Michael Greene argues that's the last thing we ought to do. Rather than sink into a deep hole of hopelessness, the author contends that we should return to the economic thought of Martin Luther King Jr. and to the conception of full employment that constitutes the economic bedrock of his Beloved Community. Greene contends that the full employment/right-to-work agenda that King fought and died for is exactly what's needed to put an end to the twin problems of involuntary joblessness and poverty. What's more, and contrary to popular opinion, Greene argues that realizing King's full employment/right-to-work agenda is fiscally feasible and can even be done without appreciably adding to the nation's debt. More generally, the author contends that a King-like response to joblessness and poverty is a route that leads to "a way out of no way."

Who Are We to Judge? We have met the Pharisees, and they are...us. That's because we are all slaves to self-righteousness and judgmentalism. It's built into human nature. We set "the standard"--the list of do's and don'ts--to which others must adhere. Then we associate this predetermined behavior with righteousness and declare, "A 'Christian' wouldn't do that." In this book, John Fischer points out that Jesus defined the truth in such a way as to leave no one righteous--not one. We cannot be made right before God by being "better" than anyone else. Instead, by recognizing and laying aside the Pharisee in all of us, we can embrace the grace, gratitude, and joy of the spirit-filled life.
