“As an addiction professional who has worked in the field for over 20 years, I am inspired by the message conveyed by John Newport’s book “The Wellness-Recovery Connection”, and by his workshop I attended at the EAPA National Conference in Philadelphia. All too often, the physical and spiritual components of recovery are marginalized or ignored. Dr. Newport’s thoughtful and professional contributions, and his passionate and informative presentations, provide vital information that both supports and enhances recovery.”
