Hear Tina Tessina PhD Explain the 13th-Step Beyond the 12th-Step - Possibly Life-changing Interview


Despite the millions who've found relief from addictive and compulsive habits through 12-step programs, these same programs' insistence that members always keep coming back unwittingly fosters attitudes that can undermine the foundations of a successful, healthy life.

The Real 13th Step Discovering Confidence, Self-Reliance, and Independence Beyond the 12-Step Programs refutes the bedrock recovery principle that some people are just born with addictive personalities. Instead, therapist Tina Tessina, who has worked with people in recovery for over four decades, identifies the underlying cause of addiction as learned dependency, and teaches readers how to develop the three central skills of true independence: risk-taking, problem-solving, and coping with failure. Her book then offers practical advice about applying these principles in every aspect of life: relationships, work, decision-making, and managing the continuing temptations of addiction. Readers will learn how they can take control of their own lives and remain free of the fear of relapse or setback in their recovery.

Sound impossible? Go against everything you were ever told about recovery?

Now you can hear the author explain the 13th step and decide for yourself. Hear her interview with Sandy Weiner, Certified Professional Life Coach below.
