Recovery from addiction and/or mental health problems is a long-term process that is difficult for the person struggling with these problems as well as their loved ones. While 12-step programs such as AA, NA, and Al-Anon work for many people, others do not find them very helpful. Dr. Kelly E. Green is a Clinical Psychologist who specializes in evidence-based alternatives to 12-step programs and can help clients with addiction and other mental health problems (and their families) learn new effective ways to:
- Support recovery efforts
- Minimize the negative impact that addiction and mental health problems can have on psychological well-being and relationships
- Repair damaged relationships
- Build healthy relationships
In addition to treatment for addiction and related problems, Dr. Green has extensive experience helping military members, Veterans, and their families cope with the impact of deployment and readjustment difficulties.

How do you repair relationships that have been damaged by addiction? How do you learn to build healthy relationships as part of addiction recovery? This book addresses these questions and many more that are important for people in all stages of addiction recovery, and it is compatible with 12-step and non-12-step recovery approaches.
Relationships in Recovery integrates scientifically proven aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy, family therapy, interpersonal therapy, and motivational therapy to address relationship skills in a broad addiction recovery context. It helps people in addiction recovery increase their self-awareness about their relationship patterns, learn to use healthy relationship skills, and improve their relationship functioning and overall quality of life as they pursue recovery and reconnection. Exercises throughout the workbook help readers apply evidence-based strategies to their personal situations, and case examples illustrate the complexities and benefits of integrating relationship recovery and addiction recovery.
