Addiction Blog Review of the 12-Step Buddhist

Daren Littlejohn combines autobiography and reference guide in this enlightened introduction to both Buddhism and the 12 steps. I like the way that he personalizes concepts and offers suggestions throughout the book. I also like the way that he simplifies Buddhist beliefs for an audience (addicts) who tend to complicate things

The 12 Steps: A Necessary But Not Sufficient Cause For Recovery

My position is that I encourage anyone who is suffering from addictions to try anything and everything they can to find relief. I’ve found mine in an integrated, comprehensive, multifaceted approach to recovery that includes, but is not limited to full participation in 12-Step groups, psychotherapy, medication, community service and involvement with Buddhist and other spiritual communities. Incidentally, there is a difference between spiritual and religious. Many methods are listed in each chapter of the 12-Step Buddhist book. You might not need all or any of them. But in my case, some are sicker than others. If you’re like me, and are tired of suffering, then it makes sense to try anything and everything you can.
