"The authors have created a tool that can benefit all people who are dealing with addictions. "The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction" integrates our best treatments for addiction and the emotional suffering that comes with it. This is a clear, step-by-step approach that will help readers move from trying (and failing) to avoid pain to living the life that they want to live, consistent with their values and free from the substance to which they are addicted. The focus on a nonjudgmental stance and acceptance of one's self while also facing challenges and changing behaviors provides readers with the key tools needed to change their lives."--John R.
