We utilize the 30 Tasks of Recovery developed by Patrick Carnes utilizing three essential workbooks: Facing the Shadow (addict), accompanying Facing Heartbreak (partner), and Facing Addiction (substance abuse) in our therapeutic task work. Recovery Zone 1 was developed to initiate growth in the internal tasks (addiction interaction, cycles of abuse, shame, grieving losses, and strengthening the relationship with self) and Recovery Zone 2 to address the external tasks (spiritual life, resolving conflicts, restoring healthy sexuality & family, coupleship, and primary intimacy). The Recovery Zone 2 workbook is currently under development. Other resources continue to be developed.
