The Heart of Recovery

The Heart of Recovery

Drawn from the personal experience of the authors and current research, The Heart of Recovery calls us to set aside judgment and mend recovering addicts and their families with the stuff God uses to heal: compassion and community.

The United States is the most medicated country in the world. More than 1.7 million Americans are struggling with addiction to prescription painkillers, fueling the opioid crisis that claims more than 140 lives every day. The trouble isn't just the drugs--it's that we don't know what to do with the people addicted to them. Not as a country, not as the church. Is tough love called for? Or would Christ have us take a different approach to addiction recovery? Drawn from the personal experience of the authors and current research, The Heart of Recovery calls us to set aside judgment and mend recovering addicts and their families with the stuff God uses to heal: compassion and community. It's a call to serve the ones who cannot repay, to forgive 70 times 7, to fling the door wide-open to the prodigal, and to remember the purpose of grace. A supportive community--family, friends, the church, and more--encourages and sustains long-term recovery. Through compassion, we bring hope for healing.

Objectives: Hope is an important part of recovery from severe mental illness. Our aim was to assess hope and its correlation with symptoms in people living with severe mental illness. Methods: We used validated questionnaires to assess hope, social isolation, quality of life and symptoms among 60 people living with severe mental illness. Results: Hope scores were significantly lower than those reported for many community groups. There was a negative association between psychiatric symptoms and levels of hope. Conclusions: Some people living with enduring severe mental illness in the Australian community feel hopeless. Being hopeful and initiating recovery are evidently difficult when symptoms remain severe. Appropriate acknowledgement and support for patients and their families is required.

Healing Invisible Wounds

Healing Invisible Wounds

This book reveals how in every society we have to move away from viewing trauma survivors as "broken people" and "outcasts" to seeing them as courageous people actively contributing to larger social goals.

In these personal reflections on his thirty years of clinical work with victims of genocide, torture, and abuse in the United States, Cambodia, Bosnia, and other parts of the world, Richard Mollica describes the surprising capacity of traumatized people to heal themselves. Here is how Neil Boothby, Director of the Program on Forced Migration and Health at the Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, describes the book: "Mollica provides a wealth of ethnographic and clinical evidence that suggests the human capacity to heal is innate--that the 'survival instinct' extends beyond the physical to include the psychological as well. He enables us to see how recovery from 'traumatic life events' needs to be viewed primarily as a 'mystery' to be listened to and explored, rather than solely as a 'problem' to be identified and solved. Healing involves a quest for meaning--with all of its emotional, cultural, religious, spiritual and existential attendants--even when bio-chemical reactions are also operative." Healing Invisible Wounds reveals how trauma survivors, through the telling of their stories, teach all of us how to deal with the tragic events of everyday life. Mollica's important discovery that humiliation--an instrument of violence that also leads to anger and despair--can be transformed through his therapeutic project into solace and redemption is a remarkable new contribution to survivors and clinicians. This book reveals how in every society we have to move away from viewing trauma survivors as "broken people" and "outcasts" to seeing them as courageous people actively contributing to larger social goals. When violence occurs, there is damage not only to individuals but to entire societies, and to the world. Through the journey of self-healing that survivors make, they enable the rest of us not only as individuals but as entire communities to recover from injury in a violent world.

The journey of a lifetime continues as Charles K. Poole’s richly individual and universally resonant views take a very personal turn in his newly published book I Am My Own Cause, Too: Hope and Recovery. In this follow-up to his well-received first book, I Am My Own Cause: An Unfiltered Blog-View of Life As I See It, Poole picks up where the last book ended. Here, he writes from the heart about living, learning, and loving in the refreshingly honest way fans of his popular blog and book have come to expect. This time, he centers his words and thoughts on being hopeful in the midst of personal recovery from . . . almost everything. Each selection in Hope and Recovery is an inspiring, thoughtful reflection on living, and Poole doesn ́t skimp on authenticity, preferring instead to fully reveal himself as focused on the journey and not just the destination. A journey through which, Poole believes, everyone can teach others and learn from others. “Every day is rich with possibilities,” Poole reminds us. “And every one of us is able to create moments that define and affirm our lives and the lives of others. It’s only by asking ourselves tough questions and examining the meaning of the answers we find that we come to appreciate the gift of life we’ve been given. Our purpose is simple: Live. Learn. Love. That’s why we’re here.”
