Corvallis, OR - In their powerful new book, The Other Twelve Steps: Building a Life Worth Living - A Guide to Post-Rehab Success, Brenda Hibbs and Jenna Smith tackle the myriad challenges that can ambush people just post-rehab or in early sobriety. Drawing from personal experience and years working in addiction recovery, Hibbs and Smith offer a compassionate, street-smart guide for staying on the path to a life well-lived after putting down the bottle or needle. Although these folks are determined to build a life free from addiction, the road ahead can be tough.

Addiction killed Jenna’s Rock Star dad when she was 16, leading her to heavy alcohol use in her teens, trying to create her own rock star life. 

Brenda explains, “One reason for writing the book is to put everything else people in recovery need in one place. We call it ‘Life Recovery,’ and cover practicalities such as paperwork, finances and legal stuff, while encouraging readers to live rewarding lives  through education, volunteering and learning to say “No” without feeling guilty.

Brenda and Jenna are both looking toward the future and how they can continue supporting others in recovery, and for Jenna, how to rebuild community. “The subtitle “Building a Life Worth Living - A Guide to Post-Rehab Success” really is our theme.”

The Other Twelve Steps, available in paperback, eBook, and audio, is available at TheOtherTwelveSteps.com along with The Other Twelve Steps Workbook.
