Publisher's Summary

A revolutionary new approach to addiction recovery from an addiction expert.

Rewired is a new breakthrough approach to fighting addiction and self-damaging behavior by acknowledging our personal power to bring ourselves back from the brink. Centered on the concept of self-actualization, Rewired will guide you toward not only physical sobriety but a mental, emotional, and spiritual sobriety by learning to identify key principles within yourself, including authenticity, honesty, gratitude, and understanding a need for solitude.

Rewired addresses the whole self; just as addiction affects every part of one's life, so, too, must its treatment. By helping us to build a healthy space to support our own recovery, we can rewrite the negative behaviors that result in addiction. Usable in conjunction with or in place of 12-step programs, Rewired allows for a more holistic approach, helping to create a personalized treatment plan that is right for you.

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 you into finding what is missing from your recovery
  • Positive affirmations and intentions to guide and motivate

With all the variables, both physical and emotional, that play into overcoming addiction, Rewired enables us to stay strong and positive as we progress on the path to recovery. Rewired teaches patience and compassion, the two cornerstones of a new humanist approach to curing addiction. Remember, addicts are not broken people who need to be fixed - they just have a few crossed wires.

Critic Reviews

"Recovery requires a 180-degree shift in how you think about yourself, your relationships, and your problems. Rewired helps you develop a useful and practical perspective on what you can do to recover from [addiction]. I highly recommend this book." (Allen Berger, PhD, author of 12 Stupid Things That Mess Up Recovery, 12 Smart Things to Do When the Booze and Drugs Are Gone, and 12 Hidden Rewards of Making Amends)
"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)
"Erica has a true gift of taking her clients to the next level so they can have the success they much deserve." (Ross Remien, director and founder, Living Rebos Outpatient/Sober Livings)

Meh...okay for newbies to therapy

This book is okay if you are just starting the very first steps towards self actualization and recovery. However, that journey has many steps and layers of discovery. This book was very basic. It doesn’t encourage an exploration of root causes of our demons. The very fact that the sentence “this may sound cheesy or corny,” was vocalized so often seemed to indicate that even the author knew this sounded like it came out of one of those weekend retreats run by some corporate team building companies. The author is correct about the elements of recovery, but I was leery about the “follow these five simple steps by yourself” approach to recovery. No discussion about working through cravings, revisits (aka relapses), or spirituality. It was also classist in the sense that the affirmations that one has enough money or can take up new hobbies or spend a substantial amount of time alone assumes a sort of financial stability. The narrator was boring and monotone even when trying to express excitement. I gave it three stars because it isn’t a harmful book and the information is superficial but decent. Overall I would say if you are looking for some deeper reflexivity into yourself and recovery, skip it.

Healing

I am an addict, a now recovering addict. Thanks to this book, I found my way more powerfully into a better way of life, and every day that I find myself struggling, I turn on this audio book and work through my struggle with self love, self care, self compassion, etc... thank you so much! This book, along with many loved ones and my recovery community, has truly saved my life.

Really found this helpful

Easy to understand and relate to. I work in addiction so trying to read as much as possible. This is great for general well being but gets the message across that recovery is more than possible and is directly related to self care and the form that this comes in and how to do this. I really recommend this book for well being and mental support with recovery. Some great real life examples from the author who is herself an addict in long term recovery.
