Resources

It can be overwhelming to find the resources you need. Here’s a collection of books, websites and videos we find helpful.

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. We also created a list specifically for loved ones – read it here.

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 Too often, those who are concerned about friends or family members with addiction get outdated or even harmful advice.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. We’ve also written content on issues facing loved ones, including the concept of enabling and common misconceptions.
