The first published work of WFS New Life Program founder Dr. Jean Kirkpatrick. This is the triumphant story of her struggle to attain sobriety. After many stops and starts, she finally found a way to lasting recovery and the New Life Program. Interspersed with Dr. Kirkpatrick’s gripping biopic are her thoughts on the gender-based challenges faced by women in our society and how they intersect with the development of addiction in women. She provides a compelling argument for the need for female-specific treatment and recovery programming. The book concludes with a 13-day crash course in the New Life Program with daily exercises designed to introduce participants to the Acceptance Statements.
