Join me for a one hour show with Melanie Soloman to discuss her book and work in regards to Substance Over use and Mental Health.
Melanie’s Bio: After battling a twelve-year addiction, and being trapped in the “recovery merry-go-round” nightmare, I have finally woken up after almost dying several times. My second edition of “AA-Not the Only Way” which is also at www.aanottheonlyway.com has just become available, where you will learn about my life, as it has taken both its ups and downs, and how I have come out on the other side ok. There is also a multitude of alternative self-help groups to find out about, and other ways to assist you in either stopping your drinking or using, or moderating it to a harmless level. In this new edition, I have also added alternatives such as hypnosis, acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Add to that a directory of licensed professionals and treatment facilities, if that is determined to be what you need, both within the U.S. and abroad, including all of their contact information…https://www.amazon.com/Melanie-Solomon/e/B002VZ5HAK
So she became the consummate researcher, finding new purpose in compiling information on evidence-based alternative recovery options that might better suit the complex and individualized needs of people suffering with substance abuse problems. In the process, she discovered that she was far from being alone in her AA “failure.” Indeed, it was instead a customized path that would help her create enduring sobriety. The result was her book, “AA Not the Only Way- Your One Stop Resource Guide to 12-Step Alternatives,” an Amazon.com bestseller in its 2nd Edition.
