Some people get sober but stay stuck. Even after the addictive substances or behaviors recede into our pasts, many of us still suffer. Renowned recovery expert Dr. Allen Berger helps us learn to experience, respect, and modulate our emotional reactions to achieve true serenity and peace of mind.

Sobriety can be the foundation for growth, but only if we are willing to explore what lies beyond the basics of physical sobriety. The quality of our ongoing recovery will be determined by how we learn to respond to the problems or challenges in our lives—even the basic emotional discomforts and dislocations that arise day-to-day.

Developed to help those in recovery find continuing success, 12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety gives us a framework for understanding successive stages of recovery, as well as a guide toward emotional maturity, authentic humility, and deep joy in living. Rooted in the insights and vision of the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous, this book is also informed by the author’s scientific wisdom, personal experience, and decades of clinical treatment of addiction. 12 Essential Insights gives us a fresh take on mature sobriety.

    12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety is Dr. Berger’s best book yet. Within these pages, the renowned psychotherapist, trainer, author and now podcast host makes his stand in support of what Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, predicted would be the next frontier of the 12-step movement. This book is everything Dr. Berger’s readers have come to expect in terms of easy-to-digest, practical information, along with crystal clear direction by way of fascinating case examples and direct instruction to the reader. This is a book you will want to keep handy for some time to come. This is a book to be used, not just read.

    In 12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety, Allen Berger once again provides practical and highly useful concepts and practices for those on the road to continuous recovery. Whether a person is “stuck” in their path and wondering what’s next, or someone 40 years in like me and already well along the road of emotional balance and sobriety, Berger’s thoughtful insights provide more tools and “road signs” along the path. Emotional sobriety is not so much a destination as an ongoing process that can yield ever greater rewards of freedom and mature interdependence. For the secular or religious, those in a twelve step process or not, for the humanist, Buddhist, atheist, or “apatheist,” this book is a valuable contribution to the literature of growth and development of a conscious and purposeful life.

    ’12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety’ is a must read for anyone wishing to master the art of living and loving. Dr. Berger’s practical wisdom and love shine through his clear and engaging prose, made all the more compelling by his moving stories and clinical vignettes. While this book is especially invaluable for those recovering from addiction and trauma, the key life lessons Dr. Berger illuminates in this gem are applicable to us all. This book is destined to heal suffering, nurture joy, and make the world a better place for us all.
