Book Review Spotlight: Author David McCauley of Oak Valley Foundation and His Book: Addiction to Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential.


“Every so often an outstanding book about and for recovery that is amazing to guide and teach others how to have a well-balanced recovery.  Author, David McCauley’s new book is that kind of read. He has written this book with the knowing that in recovery we need to do all the inner work inside ourselves, process old hurt, pain, and nasty habits and behaviors we learn within addiction. We need to clean the inside “SOUL & SPIRIT” besides the mind and body. This book helps you do that and so more!”

About The Book:

This book, Addiction to Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential, is an accumulation of existential realization, many resources, years of recovery, education, insights, and years working in the field of addiction, with all adepts in the goal of personal transformation from addiction to recovery. This is an integrative approach to living in wellness in recovery. I vacated my own mind through a very deep personal process, my own form of meditation and this book came about. My hope is this book unlocks the potential that advances new insight into the recovery process for each individual by reframing the process in such a way that the right interpretation by the reader will help recovery click in place.

What we need to celebrate in recovery is the self-discovery of the individual. I offer my carefully considered overviews and assessments on the best-known treatments (theories) connected to recovery. I have provided a new outlook as a guide for the unwary who had failed at recovery in the past and those just coming into recovery for the first time. I count myself among the autodidacts, the self-taught perpetual student fueled by a passion for new answers and a sense of mission.

MY REVIEW of  Addiction To Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential                                        AN Amazing Book, Guide, and Resource for All In Recovery & Their Families!
I was given a signed copy by the Author, David McCauley.

Addiction To Recovery: Unlocking Your Potential should be a required book to read for all who come into recovery by any means. The book, part guide, part resource, and part personal experiences, strength, and shares hope of the Author, David McCauley. It explains in words and teaches others the skills to apply in their recovery on how to interrupt the cycle of addiction, and the tools needed every day to attain long-term recovery.
Even though it is a book and guide, it reads like a memoir; the chapters and titles are laid out and easy to read. David’s writing style is unique. The goal I was looking for in this book was to learn more wellness and live a more authentic recovery life of the mind, body, and spirit. There are many paths to tapping into your spirituality, and I am not talking a 12-step higher power spiritual journey. It is not the choice as David feels and I do as well. This book is a testament to this fact. But? Whatever works for you. And it truly is a new age form of recovery by learning David’s inner self-work method that works!

I am talking the inner sense of self-spiritual power. As David shares in his book, that seed and spiritual power we all have in each of us with the ability to turn our lives around and from the depths of despair and destruction to happy, productive being. No Spoilers, but my favorite chapters I got so much out of where; “Self and Soul Chapter 6, The Resilient Self and Spiritual Path Chapter 9, and Chapter 12.” You can learn from a major relapse with more awareness before and after a binge as David did and is part of his experience.

The Prolog/Dedication is”touching,” and it is important to mention this book is also a great read for family, loved ones and friends to get an understanding of addiction and the process of recovery that their loved one needs to go through to gain longevity in recovery. “Hate the addiction, not The Addict.” Family needs insights of what an addict goes through starting the recovery process. This book covers those goals and a great family reference.

The book for me was a soul-searching journey to see the inner work that needs to be done in processing any old haunting pain and hurt in life as I feel is missing in many 12-step programs and forms of recovery.

A must read and highly suggest this book! Go Get this book people 🙂
