Mike Slinskey, owner and CEO of A New Day Rehab in Palm Beach County, Florida announced that their Primary Therapist has released a book that is currently being offered on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

According to the author, “The purpose of this book is to reduce the mystery which has surrounded our view of addiction. To understand addiction is to understand the person. For each person, there is a unique mix of influences, symptoms, and consequences. If the behavior of someone in your life is puzzling to you, then this book might bring you a better understanding. A better understanding might improve your ability to accept them, love them and, perhaps, assist them in achieving recovery.”

The author, Christopher O’Brien, has earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Contemporary Theory in Addictive Behavior from Capella University. He further states about the book, “It is hoped that this will apply if this someone is your child, your life partner, a business associate, or even if it is you. If you are already in recovery, much of what you read here will be familiar. However, much of the new information might surprise you. This work is intended to supplement what you have already learned from clinical and grass roots recovery (12 steps and other groups). It will assist you in identifying your unique components and methods to continually improve the quality of your recovery. We have identified addiction and addictive behavior as a pervasive social issue. It might be argued that it will touch each and every one of us at some time in our lives. I hope that this brief work will be of service to you, your family, and your community.”

“We are pleased to have Chris as a prominent member of our staff,” said Mr. Slinskey. “Chris brings a unique blend of education and addiction counseling experience to A New Day. His excellent book demonstrates his approach to addiction counseling and his caring demeanor in working with our patients,” he added.
