"Just when you thought recovery couldn't get any harder, life on life's terms happens, and sometimes that means someone perpetrating violence on you or your home."
These words from the introduction of Jennifer Storm's newest book encapsulate a very real problem facing thousands in recovery today. Being victimized by crime can be a life-altering, traumatic experience-one that can potentially throw a person off the course of recovery and back into the throes of addiction.
Focus is on rebuilding one's life after the devastation of a crime or trauma, while preventing relapse and promoting healing and self-awareness. Through guided exercises, journaling, recovery reminders, and other helpful tools, readers will be empowered to move through their victimization with grace and strength.
Picking up the Pieces without Picking Up offers a caring voice and expert guidance for those struggling with victimization and addiction, and also serves as a valuable resource for professionals in the treatment field, the criminal justice system, and the counseling arena.
