Inside Rehab is inspired by the research for my latest book, Inside Rehab, and my previous book on recovery, Sober for Good. Between them I've interviewed more than 300 people who struggled with addiction, many of them success stories. I've also gotten to know countless experts in the field and keep tabs on the latest studies. In this blog, we’ll look at what I’ve learned, and I’ll report and reflect upon timely issues having to do with addiction, recovery, and lifestyle change–covering everything from celebrity rehab travails to promising new sobriety approaches.
