About the Book

Do you know “who you am?” Most books regarding addiction focus on the importance of quitting. Few books, however, address maintaining recovery, much less thriving in recovery. The 13th Step integrates Bob’s personal story—including his twenty-five years in the NFL—with research in the psychology of addiction recovery. Bob posits that you can’t thrive in recovery from addiction unless you know “who you am”! To know “who you am,” you need to recognize the insidious nature of addiction and the role dysfunctional relationships play in encouraging and enabling addiction, and the way these dysfunctional relationships can undermine and sabotage recovery. These realizations inform choices and healthy changes required for maintaining recovery. Bob’s curiosity, experiences, education, and research into performance and positive psychology have enabled him to apply scientifically supported interventions and techniques to encourage the positive changes necessary to take the thirteenth step to thrive in recovery.
