ABOUT THE BOOK: People new to recovery find much support; sponsorship and fellowship are new, and the recovery life seems fresh and engaging. But, with time, women and men in recovery face new challenges that include complacency, career changes, new relationships and maybe new families, and of course spirituality, aging and the concerns about relapse.
In Out of the Woods, Diane Cameron offers real solutions to the unexpected threats and the unplanned joys that arise in the long recovery. She has faced the issues of a long recovery and she writes about them with heart and humor, honesty and imagination.
"Diane Cameron’s stunning new book maps the territory of 'longtime recovery'—acknowledging that the process at its best inexorably promotes the transformation of almost every area of life... Cameron's voice itself radiates the maturity of longtime recovery: lively, fun, inspiring and engaging, but relentlessly challenging stale assumptions." - Stephen Cope, author of The Great Work of Your Life, and Director of Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living
"Diane Cameron has illuminated the special challenges and opportunities that women with several decades of addiction recovery share, and has brought the wisdom of that journey to all who decide to get on that path." - Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP, best-selling author, My Name is Caroline and Creating Your Best Life
