- We can order this
Millions of people appear to be living normal lives yet they are secretly numbing their emotional pain with alcohol, drugs, food, and many other lifestyle addictions. The good news is that there is hope, and author Michael Cartwright knows this firsthand, both personally and professionally.
Hooked on drugs and alcohol as a teenager, Cartwright landed in a psychiatric hospital in a catatonic state in his early twenties. Despite completing the typical recovery programs and mandatory counseling, he continued in a downward spiral until he had an epiphany that would ultimately set him free. Once he was able to visualize what his life could be, he created an inward believable hope that his life could change for the better. By adjusting his mind-set and confronting not only his addictions, but his core emotional issues, he overcame his compulsions and became emotionally healthy and financially wealthy. He went on to establish multiple nationwide treatment centers that have helped thousands of people break the cycle of addiction.
In Believable Hope, he shares his personal struggles, his recovery process, and the 5-pronged approach that has caused dramatic transformation with clientele ranging from those living on the street to celebrities and everyone in-between. Believable Hope is a lifeline for people battling addiction, providing a fresh sense of hope for those who love them.

From Eva Schwartz, Netgalley reviewer. (aka Stormhawk on goodreads.com)
There are a lot of books in the self-help genre that you read once, put it down, and don't carry a lot away from. Believeable Hope is not one of those sorts of books. It is a story of a healing journey that invites you along, both to view the success of others, but to spur your own success, and to utilize your failures as motivations for change. There is not a lot of advice offered in this book, which makes it stand out from the crowd. What you do get is practical information and self-assessment tools that guide you to finding your own focus, make plans, act on them, adapting and improving when necessary. I look forward to returning to this book to help myself, as well as my clients in substance abuse treatment.--Eva Schwartz "Netgalley "
