World renowned addiction expert, Dr. Patrick Carnes, releases his second volume of The Recovery Zone series, an innovative and practical guide focused on tasks and resiliency skills to restore happiness, harmony, and lifestyle balance for those recovering from all types of addictions. Recovery Zone Volume 2 provides real answers about how to stay in the zone when traumatic events, toxic stress, and easy access to escape surrounds you. The goal must be an "Ultimate to do List" so you do not miss out on the life you want and feel a genuine call to do.

Core to this platform is a resilience scale built on ten master skills and thirty operational strategies that users describe as a "defining" passage into a new life.You have made the decision. You realize you can no longer live like this. The costs are too high. For some of us, the decision is remade over time, but inch by inch we resolved to make it different. There is the "dark passenger" in our head who argues about our choice to be better. The even greater challenge with your decision to change, is the question of how to do it? We ask " how to take the dark corners of ourselves and bring them into the light?" The commitment wavers and so does the struggle.
