About the project

THE ADDICT’S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE: A ROADMAP TO RECOVERY is a self-help book and serial podcast by Emily Sussman, LCSW. Emily is a recovering addict and psychotherapist in private practice who specializes in addiction and recovery.

THE ADDICT’S GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE is an up-close-and-personal look at what it takes to live an incredible life in sobriety, including: what it means to be an addict; the tools of recovery; understanding your feelings; creating meaningful relationships; and finding happiness and fulfillment by becoming the truest version of yourself.

Emily reads each chapter on the podcast as she writes them, and a series of books based on the podcast will be published in 2023.

*** UPDATE !***

Book One of “The Addict’s Guide to the Universe” series, The Addict’s Guide to Recovery, will be published in late spring of 2023. More info coming soon.
