Everyone is invited to attend the launch of Jim Good’s new book, Understanding the Impact of the Addicted Person: A Layperson’s 1st Step Guide to Recovery, at Lennon House in South Rustico, on December 7 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
Jim recently retired from the Mt. Herbert Provincial Addictions Treatment Facility where he worked as a Family Addictions Counsellor for 20 years. Through feedback from family members, he was able to develop a perspective called the “Eggshell Perspective” which helped many family members, as well as the addicted person, gain insight through the recovery process. The new book brings forth a picture hidden behind the scene, says the author, which explains clearly why we become so wounded by addiction and how to reduce the impact. Jim says that he hopes the book changes our perspective, allowing us to love in a more supportive way, while maintaining our own identity.
At the launch Jim will give a short 15 minute visual presentation of the essence of the book to help people gain insight into a new way of approaching addiction.
Jim is presently living in Rustico and has self published this book. Understanding the Impact of the Addicted Person: A Layperson’s 1st Step Guide to Recovery is available at Bookmark, Lennon House and Mt. Herbert Provincial Addictions Treatment Facility.
