30 Days to Keep You Sober is a support tool for addicts and or alcoholics that are looking for guidance to stay clean and sober. This book includes first-hand accounts of real people and their personal struggles with addictive personalities. It is the kind of book that offers readers a realistic outlook on why people struggle with pain that leads to addictive behavior. This workbook will help you learn how you become at-risk for addiction and/or mental health issues, to reflect on at-risk factors for relapse, to complete an autobiography with an open heart and open eyes like never before, and to use analytical skills to complete a written relapse prevention plan. You will learn how mental health and substance abuse are linked, explore some skills that might help you maintain sobriety after relapsing without the handicap of guilt, and the benefits of successful aftercare as a primary support system. You will be able to identify criminal thinking patterns and have access to a blog about how pain leads to addiction from psychiatrist, Dr. Arthur Janov.
