New Approach For Addressing Alcoholism

Rolf Ankermann’s revolutionary new book, The Freedom to Recover, does not offer a “program” for sobriety but rather, suggests a complete reversal of how alcohol addiction should be both viewed and addressed. The goal for addressing alcoholism should be to recover, not to be in a perpetual state of recovering “one day at a time” for eternity. Those suffering from the throes of addiction need not declare themselves as powerless. Rather, through the gift of freewill and the ability and responsibility to make choices that go along with it, we all have the power to overcome obstacles and be the determining factor that dictates the direction and purpose of our lives. Concentrating on the skills that can enhance self-empowerment as opposed to relinquishing one’s independence, this book will help teach the suffering alcoholic how to:


• Control the inner-dialog that takes place in their head 
• Embrace decision making instead of fearing and running away from it 
• Forgive and learn from the past instead of continuously reliving it with a sense dread and resentment 
• Live in the present with intent and an eye towards the future 
• Accept the world as it is and react accordingly 
• Appreciate and listen to one’s inner voice or intuition 
• Move away from selfishness towards an empathetic and altruistic union with those around them and the world at large.
