First workbook of three for walking from sexual addiction to recovery. Carnes has a thirty step guide (!) based on his research of those who have successfully recovered; who ever said recovery was easy? This a great resource, though, to accompany you as you work with your therapist, your sponsor, and your group to get healthy again. This is also the first book that therapists like me who are working on their CSAT (certified sex addiction therapist) read in preparation for Module 1.
