Certified as an evidence-based intervention by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), and listed on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs (NREPP).

Seeking treatment for substance abuse or addiction is half the battle—staying sober is the other. In this important book, physician Stanley Block and addiction specialist Guy du Plessis present a powerful, easy-to-use program for overcoming addiction utilizing the mind-body bridging modality.

If you're recovering from substance abuse, you know that every day is a new battle. In fact, staying sober is one of the hardest aspects of addiction recovery, and many people end up relapsing. If you’ve tried traditional treatment but are still struggling to stay on the path to sobriety, you may be ready for a new approach.

In Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction, Stanley Block, MD, Carolyn Bryant Block, and founder of the popular Integrated Recovery Program (IRP), Guy du Plessis present an innovative and clinically proven mind-body bridging technique to help you stay sober, manage emotions and stress, and ultimately build a better life. Inside, you’ll find easy-to-use self-help exercises to help you uncover addiction triggers, stay grounded, and prevent future relapse so you can finally heal.

Mind-body bridging is a proven-effective method of self-help that teaches you how to regulate strong emotions such as anxiety, anger, worry, and stress—all emotions that lie at the core of addiction issues. You'll learn how to become aware of your negative thoughts, experience them without pushing them away, and then use your physical senses to become more grounded and relaxed, rather than turning to alcohol or drugs for relief.

If you're ready to finally gain control of your addiction and stay sober, this book has the potential to change your life.

Review:

“As a clinical psychologist working in the addiction field, I see, every day, the glaring need for effective tools for my clients to avoid relapse. Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction is the resource addiction professionals have been waiting for. It explains relapse as the complex behavior it is, and offers simple yet brilliant explanations and exercises to not only understand cravings, but also combat them. It is my hope that this book becomes part of every treatment center’s approach to preparing their clients for lifelong sobriety.”
Adam Gorman, PsyD, clinical psychologist, Albany, NY

“There is genius in this book. My reaction after reading it was I wanted to stand up and cheer. This is practical, brilliantly taught mindfulness brought to the service of relapse prevention. It is also a beautifully transcendent document. I hope this book has a huge readership and usage because it’s going to save lives.”
John Dupuy, MA, author of Integral Recovery


Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction takes the mystery out of treating addiction by providing a blueprint for connecting thoughts, feelings, behavior, and change. I plan to use this in my addiction counseling practice.”
—Patrick McKiernan PhD, clinical director of Certified Counseling Services, Louisville, KY


“The gap in addiction treatment that has caused so many to relapse has been finally closed! Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction supplies the reader with easy-to-apply, everyday tools that allow them to access and utilize their own innate wellspring of healing, goodness, and wisdom to live their best clean and sober lives.”
Peter D. Farr, MD, DABFM, medical director of addiction medicine at Dearborn County Hospital in Lawrenceburg, IN, and member of the American Society of Addiction Medicine


“Ongoing advances in neuroscience now confirm undeniably that addiction involves the neural activity of the brain as much as the physiology of the body and the emotional state of the inner life. Mind-Body Workbook for Addiction integrates each of these into an accessible and highly effective tool for recovery, one that will be useful for a lifetime. Every day, over five hundred people die from addiction. This is a book that may save your life.”
Davelyn V. Vidrine, PhD, LCSW, director of education at the Wayne Institute for Advanced Psychotherapy at Bellarmine University, Louisville, KY
