Resources

Here’s a collection of books, websites and videos our members have found helpful.

If you're looking for specific resources such as housing or financial assistance, please get in touch with our coaching team. All social service or treatment referrals are made on a case-by-case basis depending on the individual's needs and location.

Reading

There are numerous books, articles and other materials about addiction and recovery. We narrowed it down to literature that has proved most helpful to the individuals we’ve served over the years.

The following resources focus on science-based information, proven advice and a wide range of strategies for getting involved in advocacy around addiction. These resources are often very helpful to those we coach.

Clean
High (This is a great read for teenagers and their parents.)

Chasing the Scream
 

We recommend those struggling with opioid addiction and their loved ones become familiar with NARCAN® and how to administer it. Be sure to research your state's laws regarding pharmacy access or get help from a coach, pharmacist or other provider.

Videos

We find each one of these videos important, especially for loved ones. Too often, those who are concerned about friends or family members with addiction get outdated or even harmful advice. These videos are a good place to start if you’d like to learn more about addiction and how to address it.
