CENTRAL RECOVERY PRESS (CRP) is a full-service publishing and intellectual property clearinghouse specializing in addiction treatment and recovery and behavioral health care topics. Our publications are written specifically for recovering individuals and their families; addiction and other behavioral health professionals; treatment facilities; and engaged members of the general public. At CRP, behavioral health refers to the reciprocal relationship between human behavior and mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. Achieving and maintaining balance within these four essential life domains provides a framework for healthy, purposeful living and offers practical solutions to many of life’s problems. Our mission is to shed light on the age-old stigma associated with addiction, treatment, and recovery, and shift the prevailing understanding of addiction toward a paradigm of one disease with many manifestations, thereby offering a broader view of recovery to a broader and more diverse audience. We are committed to offering exceptional published material on this critically important subject, and we accomplish this with content that is original and inspiring, utilizing a distribution model that includes everything from traditional bound books to the latest in broadcasting and web technologies.

MEL POHL, MD, FASAM

The solution to chronic pain is within you. Consider this: the problem of chronic pain is a plague that blights the lives of millions of Americans—in fact, pain is the number-one reason Americans consult their doctors each year. Until now, the number-one solution to this problem has been opioid painkillers—overdoses of which are second only to car accidents as the cause of accidental deaths in this country. Clearly, pain is a problem, but our current “number-one” solution seems to be no solution at all. Pain is a pandemic with no end in sight.

FALL 2011 NEW TITLES

Examines underused but effective methods for treating pain without the use of narcotic/ opioid painkillers, so that optimal health and function can be restored.

Addresses the issues of abuse and addiction many chronic pain sufferers experience as a result of treatment with opioid medications.

DENISE D. CROSSON, PHD • ILLUSTRATED BY MIKE MOTZ

Janey and her family face the complexities of addiction. Addiction is a devastating disease not only to the person who suffers from it, but also to family members.

This book is about Janey and how she learns about her mother’s disease. Written in easy-to-understand language with brightly colored illustrations, Mommy’s Gone to Treatment addresses some of the issues children face when a parent seeks help.

Mommy smiled at Janey and said, “I missed you so much too, and I’m very glad you are here. I’m not sure yet when I’ll be coming home. I need to be here until the doctor thinks I can stay healthy on my own.”

Janey looked at Mommy. She looked at her face, her arms, her legs, and her body. Janey couldn’t see anything wrong. Mommy looked just fine. “You look okay to me. I can’t see where you’re sick. Where are you sick, Mommy?”
