We’ve received our copies of The Soul of an Addict, and it’s now available in our store.
Some folks don’t want to buy through Amazon. We understand. Independent book stores are having a hard time these days.
So we’ve created an online store where you can buy copies of our books. And you can request a signed copy!
We ship USPS Media Mail, and will ship within two business days if paid with Paypal or credit or debit card. If you pay by check or money order, we’ll ship within five days of receiving your payment.
One caveat: We can only sell what we have in stock, and we’re presently experiencing delays getting some of our books from our printer.
“If you thought you understood addiction, think again, and read this book. While this is a book by a fine writer, it is more importantly by someone who is himself in recovery. It draws on a wide variety of research and experience and avoids easy answers. A must read for the non-addict who is trying to understand the huge society problem of addiction.” –Russ Eanes, author of The Walk of a Lifetime
“The best explanation I’ve ever read about addiction for the non-addict.” –Ed Marshall, recovering addict
“Your style is lucid and compelling.” Brendon Walls, Catholic Charities
“This is one of the best overviews of addiction and recovery… It is very readable with examples throughout, and provides a good overview of various approaches to understanding and treating addiction with a fair critique of these. As one who has a doctorate in religion, I find your description of addiction to be realistic, convincing, and very helpful to recognize the god-like power that makes so much sense to the devotee.” Linford Stutzman, Eastern Mennonite University
Joshua Pettit is one of the best photographers I’ve seen when it comes to capturing the character and beauty of the southern Utah desert. We’re proud to introduce his second book, God’s Country a collection of 60 new photographs. The stunning photo on the cover is just the beginning!
“The book elucidates the agony of addiction in a fresh, new way. It emphasizes the role of trauma in setting the stage for debilitating behaviors, and explains the importance of community support in the healing process. With anecdotes of many people who grapple with addiction and have survived, as well as sad stories of addicts who died, this book provides healthy doses of grit and inspiration.” –Christopher Key Chapple, Loyola Marymount University
It’s available! In both paperback and Kindle formats. The Soul of an Addict: Unlocking the Complex Nature of Addiction, by D.J. Mitchell.
Addiction is more complex than it may seem. Written for the non-addict who seeks to understand substance addiction, The Soul of an Addict shows that addiction not just a disease or a choice. Using statistics, anecdotes from the lives of addicts, and the author’s personal experience with addiction and recovery, the book argues that addiction affects all aspects of human existence, including identity, purpose, life structure, and morality. It serves as a religion in the addict’s life, and any approach to recovery must also provide these essential needs. With one in seven Americans struggling with substance abuse, this book brings a timely analysis for anyone concerned about addiction.
“A must-read… As a therapist I will be recommending this book to my clients.” –Milt McLelland, CMHC, Roots Counseling Center
