Life on the Rocks:Finding Meaning in Addiction & Recovery with Peg O'Connor
Addiction and recovery are, at their core, about the meaning of life. Life on the Rocks is the first book to address addiction and recovery from a Western philosophical perspective, offering a powerful set of tools sharpened over millennia. It introduces some of the core concepts and vexing questions of philosophy to help addicts and those affected by their addiction examine and perhaps transform the meaning they make of their lives.
Without assuming any familiarity with philosophy, Dr. O’Connor illuminates issues all addicts and their loved ones face: self-identity, moral responsibility, self-knowledge and self-deception, free will and determinism, fatalism, the nature of God, and their relations to others. Life on the Rocks is an indispensable guide to the deeply philosophical concerns at the heart of every addict’s struggle.
Peg O’Connor, PhD, is professor of philosophy and gender, women, and sexuality studies at Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota. She is the author of the popular Psychology Today blog “Philosophy Stirred, Not Shaken” and contributor to the Pro Talk series at Rehabs.com.

Let's explore the word, "love," and see how it relates to the addict and addiction. I am wondering, "What do you love about hurtiing yourself?" What if your emotional body has created your imbalances? And...what if addictions are imbalances? We will be exploring the awareness that recovery becomes easy for those who know how.
Join us in discussion as we see, hear and feel how love goes with addiction...or not.

Steve Herndon came across the desk of our CEO by way of Addiction Professional’s blog article, Pro football’s Herndon to share recovery journey at NCAD. An email to me with a “How can we book this incredible human being on Mental Health News Radio?” led us to our strategic partner ActiveMarketing. Talking about any kind of sport with our CEO, Kristin Walker, will go nowhere: she wouldn’t know a touchdown from a slam dunk. What she cared about was the person that jumped out of this article and what he is doing to empower healing for men when it comes to their journey through addiction.
Please join us for one our most inspiring shows on Mental Health News Radio!

Peg O'Connor gives us her unique take on addiction and recovery. She gives us practical insights that put a new spin on some old cliches about what it takes to live a rich, meaningful, and joyful life beyind addiction.
Life on the Rocks (Central Recovery Press Trade Paper; January 12, 2016; $16.95; ISBN 978-1-942094-02-9) is the first book to address addiction and recovery from a Western philosophical perspective, offering a powerful set of tools sharpened over millennia. Assuming no prior familiarity with the subject, O’Connor draws upon the wisdom of the whole philosophical tradition from Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, to Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, and Wittgenstein, illuminating issues all addicts and their loved ones face: self-identity, moral responsibility, self-knowledge and self-deception, free will and determinism, fatalism, the nature of God, and their relations to others.
