We consider ourselves a recovery company first, a publishing house second. We believe in taking a personal approach with our authors, our colleagues, and our readers, always looking to build lasting and meaningful relationships that are based on our shared values and principles.
Our mission is to shift the prevailing understanding of addiction toward a paradigm of one disease with many manifestations, offering a broader view of recovery to a more diverse audience. We understand, and research supports, that addiction is a primary, complex, and chronic brain disease, not a moral failing, character weakness, or vice. The differences among substances or behaviors are not as important as the similarities among those who are seeking recovery. We believe behavioral health refers to the reciprocal relationship between human behavior and physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being, and we support the twelve-step model of recovery. The works we choose to publish reflect these viewpoints.
