About The Book

Discover a fresh, judgement-free, and spiritual approach to recovery from all forms of addiction—including alcohol, social media, gaming, and more—from the author of the “liberating” (Mandala Magazine) work The 12-Step Buddhist.

There is no one-size-fits-all recovery for addiction. And addiction can take many forms, from drugs and toxic relationships to gaming and alcohol. As addiction rates skyrocket, with thousands of people dying from opioid overdoses each year, new recovery methods for addicts are more vital than ever before. While the traditional 12-step programs have proven helpful to some for more than eighty years, many find the fundamentals outdated. Now, Compassionate Recovery offers a dogma-free approach to recovery, embracing holistic spiritual practices and the full spectrum of addiction and attachment.

This all-inclusive program is meant as a flexible alternative to traditional 12-step programs and provides compassionate advice from “a person who actually went through the experience of recovery and from that experience has seen the benefits of this system” (Yangsi Rinpoche, president of Maitripa College). Now you can change your physical and spiritual life for the better with Compassionate Recovery.
