An Alcoholic Therapist Fights for Recovery in a Flawed Treatment System.
On bookshelves and online January 21, 2015
As I rebuilt my practice I gradually revealed the story of my battle with alcoholism to colleagues and clients and new friends. Their reaction was the same: “Oh my God, you must write a book.”
Wasted: An Alcoholic Therapist Fights for Recovery in a Flawed Treatment System is that book. I wrote it with my partner, documentary filmmaker Maureen Palmer.
The “Couch of Willingness” is an a actual couch in a rundown recovery home here on the Lower Mainland. That’s what everyone in the house calls it. Every newcomer must detox and sleep there until he “surrenders” and admits he’s powerless over alcohol. That’s where I landed when I lost everything.
The 1st edition of the book, The Couch of Willingness” is available at Mike’s Park Royal office for a limited time.
