West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 4, 2007 -
AddictionRecoveryBasics.com has compiled a collection of the most pertinent tips and articles on dealing with the challenges of recovering from addiction, with topics ranging from managing stress, to developing self-confidence, to using spirituality to achieve sustained recovery. The 97-page document, called the Recovery Rolodex, is available for free and can be easily downloaded as a PDF file from AddictionRecoveryBasics.com.
The Recovery Rolodex is a book of lists for people who need addiction-recovery advice, and includes tips on topics such as dealing with cravings, finding a rehabilitation program, sleeping better and sustaining healthy relationships. The Rolodex offers valuable advice on handling temporary setbacks along with hundreds of other techniques and links to sites, blogs and forums that offer the best and most relevant resources for addiction treatment. The three major goals of the Recovery Rolodex are preventing relapses, fostering personal development and effectively managing withdrawal symptoms.
The document is a solution for the vast array of information that exists about addiction recovery because it offers a consolidated resource for helping recovering addicts and their families cope with and work through the stages of recovery. Bill Urell, a certified addictions therapist who has personal experience with addiction recovery, created AddictionRecoveryBasics.com and the Recovery Rolodex to reach out to recovering addicts and provide them with the most recent information, studies, advice and tips on addiction recovery.
Recovering from addiction requires a two-pronged approach - finding the right skills and treatment options to use to obtain effective recovery and using those same skills to achieve and sustain a complete recovery. The Recovery Rolodex breaks the road to recovery into five major areas that recovering addicts need to address and process for complete recovery success. These steps include acknowledging an existing problem, making the resolution to stop the addictive behavior, establishing a strong plan to maximize successful addiction recovery and using the plan to recover from the addiction.
