Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The concept of this book is based on Dr. Haroutunian's desire to "...bring the heart of the world renowned, highly successful Betty Ford Center treatment plan to anyone struggling with addiction." To my knowledge this has never been done. After reading it, I am certain that many men and women and their families will benefit from this book.
Dr. Haroutunian is highly passionate about recovery. His writing style is personable and highly accessible which is what you'd say about Dr. Haroutunian if you had a chance to meet him. He is an incredible man who openly shares what he has learned from his own recovery journey, and an outstanding medical doctor who cares deeply for his patients.
He also has the unique gift of translating complex medical research into simple down to earth language that provides us, the readers, with clarity and highly pragmatic suggestions. His insights will help those of us trudging the road to recovery transform principles of coping into principles that will help us realize our true potential and live better lives than ever imagined.
Allen Berger, Ph.D. - Author of 12 Stupid Things that Mess up Recovery
The book starts by examining the neurobiology of addiction, and firmly settles the issue that addictions are truly disease states. Dr. Haroutunian puts a modern and fresh spin on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, distilling each step into the strengths and weaknesses being addressed. In one of it's most powerful efforts, Being Sober bridges the gap from "rehab" to "recovery", a transition that is often neglected in popularized mass media. It depicts recovery as an attractive, attainable goal.
The heart of the book, however, is Dr. Haroutunian's own journeys. "Dr. Harry" is neither boastful nor evasive when he discusses his near destructions, wrought by a cunning and powerful disease. Yet each saga is balanced with a lesson in gratitude, as he chooses recovery over addiction and finds his way into new life. Well done, doctor; in these stories lies "first person hope" for anyone searching for relief from addictions.
I predict this book will become a classic, and required reading for both those that suffer from addictions, and those that treat them.
