12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety

“In 12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety, Allen Berger once again provides practical and highly useful concepts and practices for those on the road to continuous recovery.  Whether a person is “stuck” in their path and wondering what’s next, or someone 40 years in like me and already well along the road of emotional balance and sobriety, Berger’s thoughtful insights provide more tools and “road signs” along the path.  Emotional sobriety is not so much a destination as an ongoing process that can yield ever greater rewards of freedom and mature interdependence.  For the secular or religious, those in a twelve step process or not, for the humanist, Buddhist, atheist, or “apatheist,” this book is a valuable contribution to the literature of growth and development of a conscious and purposeful life.”

John Runnion, Co-founder of the Freethinkers Living Sober Group

12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety is Dr. Berger’s best book yet. Within these pages he makes his stand in support of what Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, predicted would be the next frontier of the 12-step movement. This book is everything Dr. Berger’s readers have come to expect in terms of easy-to-digest, practical information, along with crystal clear direction by way of fascinating case examples and direct instruction to the reader. This is a book you will want to keep handy for some time to come. I am pretty sure that Dr. Berger and Bill Wilson have been collaborating in a realm just beyond this one. This book is the evidence.”

Thom Rutledge, LCSW

12 Essential Insights for Emotional Sobriety is a must read for anyone wishing to master the art of living and loving. Dr. Berger’s practical wisdom and love shine through his clear and engaging prose, made all the more compelling by his moving stories and clinical vignettes. While this book is especially invaluable for those recovering from addiction and trauma, the key life lessons Dr. Berger illuminates in this gem are applicable to us all. This book is destined to heal suffering, nurture joy, and make the world a better place for us all.” Michael McGee, M.D., DLFAPA
