“There are few people who truly understand the disease of addiction and the attainability of recovery as well as Erica Spiegelman. Rewired is a must read for anyone seeking the essential internal tools to make recovery a reality.”
—Robert L. Shapiro, Attorney and Chairman, The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness
Just as addiction affects every part of one’s life, so too must its treatment. Rewired presents a breakthrough approach to fighting addiction and self-damaging behavior—by addressing the whole self.
Author and addictions expert Erica Spiegelman demonstrates that by helping to build a healthy space to support one’s own recovery, one can rewrite the negative behaviors that result in addiction. Rewired describes a holistic approach, helping to create a personalized treatment plan that is right for each person and usable in conjunction with or in place of 12-step programs.
Each section in Rewired includes personal anecdotes from the author’s own struggles with alcoholism and addiction, inspiring true success stories of patients overcoming their addictions, questions to engage people into finding what is missing from their recovery, and positive affirmations and intentions to guide and motivate.
With all the variables, both physical and emotional, that play into overcoming addiction, Rewired enables people to stay strong and positive as they progress on the path to recovery. Rewired teaches patience and compassion, the two cornerstones of a new, humanist approach to curing addiction.
