The Book of Rehab - A New Approach to Drug Addiction with Guest Skip Haynes
August 5, 2013
Hosted by Mary Woods
Everyday someone, somewhere, is regretting their addiction and promising themselves, and/or a loved one, that they’ve just had their last round and that this time will be different. They’ll never, ever do it again. And some loved ones are deciding whether to trust them and give them one more chance or walk away. Many addicts promise to get help but don’t know how to start or immediately make excuses afraid to go to a rehab, doctors or 12-step meeting. Our guest today, Skip Haynes, wrote a step-by-step guidebook called The Book f Rehab. It’s based on years of personal experience and on the theory it takes one to communicate with one. It's also a stand-alone program that can be used as support before, during and after in conjunction with any other drug rehab program.

Recovery, whether it is from substance abuse or a mental illness, or both requires a treatment plan, which in many cases is as effective as treatments for other chronic illnesses. “One Hour AT A Time” will increase awareness about recovery and decrease the discrimination against individuals in the recovery process. Host Mary Woods, will help people understand the recovery of adults and families living with co-occurring substance use disorders and psychotic and/or affective illness over the course of a lifetime. Helping individuals develop the skills and knowledge they need to take personal responsibility for their health and supporting individuals in their efforts to get on with life beyond illness has been Mary’s mission and she now brings that mission to the airwaves.
