Brings Integral Theory to addiction treatment, offering a more holistic vision of recovery and powerful practices for achieving it.
This book is for everyone who is suffering from the disease of addiction or who cares about someone who is: for addicts, their families and friends, and their health care providers. It is for those who are currently in recovery and looking for a way to shift their recovery into a higher gear—from just surviving and muddling through to becoming the absolute best version of themselves, from mere recovery to Integral Recovery.
Integral Recovery is the groundbreaking application of Integral Theory to addiction. It brings alcohol and drug treatment into the twenty-first century by combining the best of the treatment modalities of the past with the latest knowledge, techniques, and neurotechnologies in order to ensure a more holistic and lasting recovery. In addition to providing an illuminating and inspiring map to the path of recovery, Integral Recovery teaches life-changing practices that initiate the addict on a journey of healing, transformation, and awakening, offering the possibility of a lifetime of health, joy, and sobriety.
“John Dupuy’s Integral Recovery is a revolutionary application of Integral Theory to the national epidemic of substance abuse and addictive behavior. Clear, comprehensive, and appropriately inclusive, it points to a radically new way to deal with alcoholism and addiction, one that looks to be incredibly promising and much more effective than existing approaches, all of which are partial and segmented. The Integral approach, on the other hand, by taking a truly holistic (in the best sense of that term) approach, points to a comprehensive strategy much more promising in its results. Highly recommended for professional and layperson alike!” — Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision: A Very Short Introduction to the Revolutionary Integral Approach to Life, God, the Universe, and Everything
“John Dupuy’s Integral Recovery should be considered a ‘must read’ for professionals in the addiction recovery field. Such a holistic approach to the treatment of alcoholism and other addictions is long overdue. This book deserves a wide readership.” — Michael Dowd, author of Thank God for Evolution: How the Marriage of Science and Religion Will Transform Your Life and Our World
John Dupuy is CEO of Integral Recovery® and iAwake Technologies and teaches at John F. Kennedy University.

I've been searching for a framework that allows me to level up my identity as AA has never resonated with me in that it required me to identify as "being an alcoholic." Alcoholism, while it is a brain disease it is also a symptom of much deeper unresolved issues, past trauma, etc. Integral Recovery gives you a framework to deeply work with the things that are preventing you from living your highest self. I never knew it was possible but it actually makes me excited to deal with my addiction because it gave me a map and showed me a glimpse of the awesomeness I can manifest in my life. Thank You John!
As I started to read this book I had to set it down multiple times - from overwhelming joy. In my quest to find a holistic approach to moving from addiction to a life beyond, I have read countless books blogs and articles. John's book was the first book I read that truly captured the essence of what helped me in my own recovery in a workable digestible framework. It's a masterpiece. John is no doubt a visionary and this work is no doubt the beginning of what is to become the standard of addiction recovery in America. I recommend this book to everyone I know.
This is the most comprehensive book I have ever read on the treatment of addiction. It integrates many concepts such as Gardner's multiple intelligences, the enneagram, new (and much more effective) ways to meditate, as well as mind, body, emotional and spiritual development methods. It can be used to significantly enhance traditional treatments, and applies to anyone - user or not. The author explains complex issues as simply as possible for us lay readers. While he promises no magic bullet, he fills me with hope that there is a path that with hard work one has a real chance of permanent recovery.
