Walk in Dry Places is a daily reader for those who seek simplicity and assuredness in their Twelve Step program. Recovery doesn’t settle at physical or emotional sobriety. Rather, it aims to grow in honesty and intention each day. This meditation book, complementary to any addiction recovery, simplifies our daily self-improvement with thought- and action-provoking meditations. 

Nowadays, there are medications, therapy-based activities, and mindfulness exercises. Undoubtedly, these are helpful new tools and coping skills. For people in recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction, though, the best medicines are still good action and honesty. Addiction treatment, counseling, therapy, and working a program give a good start. For continued results, though, a recovering person must act thoughtfully and truthfully each day. 

With many years in the program, respected recovery writer Mel B. simplifies our daily engagements with straightforward and insightful advice. Packed with experiential meditations and prayers, Walk in Dry Places ensures continued growth in spirit. It teaches us to extend ourselves into the real world and improve the lives of others—not just our own. Through guided thought and action, we elevate the principles and people that are truly important in our recovery, and turn the rest over to a Higher Power.
