Institution Personnel,                                                                                       August 2018

Good day, I hope this letter finds you well. My name is Veronica Slack and I am the author of a recovery book series titled, “I didn’t ask to think this way, I just do…” The series provides creative long-term recovery support for any person with any issue. I would like you to consider adding these recovery journals to your facility services. This series invites you to co-write daily meditations that promote better thinking, in journal form. The end result is that each person creates a one-of-a-kind book of their own story. This participating book series is designed to encompass all economic classes, all genders, all cultures, all races, and all beliefs. This occurs by the reader participating in a class or co-writing half of the book unique to their own views.

 

Currently, I provide Silverdale Detention Center and the Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center with free recovery journals. 100% of net proceeds from the sale of 31 days of Volume l continues the outreach in our community and beyond. Statistically, the individual response to using the recovery journals is very high and I continue to gather statistics. The recovery journals are proven effective for any person coping with any issue.

 

Adding the recovery journals to your facility services is innovative and it supports a person in unison with any treatment or program already in place, or the series can be used as a stand-alone supportive recovery system. The recovery journals are self-explanatory and user friendly, just open and begin daily support. The book series is an empowering personal accomplishment to clients or to any person. I suggest starting with the long-term Recovery Journal Volume I or the short-term version 31-days of Volume l.

 

I am a recovering person and this endeavor has evolved over the last 27 years from hands-on recovery experience, as well as from post-secondary education. In 2012 Chattanooga State Community College presented me with the Excellence Award from the Social and Behavior Science Department. In 2003, I developed and hosted a televised 12 step recovery program for all people struggling in life. The program aired for 3 years via the public access channel in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Over the last 19 years, I have written and designed this recovery series that supports any person daily who is coping with any issue by encouraging participation and change until each book is completed then continues on to the next Volume.

Today I am an advocate for any person recovering from any issue that limits their life and will continue my interaction with institutions and private recovery groups. I also facilitate a weekly Recovery Journal class at the Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center. The class creates recovery boards that are posted on our website and social media in efforts to reach outside of our community. Our website also offers forums that allow a person to view short recovery journal classes, as well as to post thoughts, inspirational pictures, or art.

 

Thank you for your time, I know you care for your clients’ wellbeing. Please consider adding Recovery Journal Volume l to your facility services and/or placing our brochure display in your lobby. I do not think you will be disappointed in this venture. Contact: www.recoveryjournals.com 423-355-6471 veronicaslack23@gmail.com

“Recovery from the multitude of societal issues will always be an ongoing process that isn’t the responsibility of any one city, or one town, or one person, societal issues are all of our responsibility to take on. This book series comes from within this society and is a small part of a larger solution, that is needed.” -Veronica Slack

 

 

COMMENTS: On The Book Series and the Recovery Journals 

 

 

“The Recovery Journals and The Recovery Journal Groups have been wonderful resources for our patients and staff. The journals are excellent tools for self-reflection, motivation, encouragement, etc. The journals are user-friendly and would be helpful to anyone in any phase of recovery. “
 -Yohunnah Woods-Moton, MA, LPC-MHSP Clinical Supervisor Volunteer Comprehensive Treatment Center, Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

“Ms. Slack made a special trip as an alumna of Eagleville Hospital to share her story of hope and recovery with us. Her desire to share this with others to encourage this process in those who are also tired and suffering is demonstrated through the creation of her participating book series. These books and journals are designed to turn the reader into the writer of their own recovery story. The books show that one is never alone in their journey of recovery and that recovery IS possible. We are so grateful that she chose to share her story and her life’s work with the staff and patients of Eagleville Hospital!” -Lara Haagen, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, CCTP Clinical Coordinator of Adjunctive Therapy, Eagleville Hospital, Eagleville, Pennsylvania

 

“As a psychotherapist, working with many clients who are hurting, hard-headed, and too busy, I was thrilled to read (and co-author) I Didn't Ask to Think This Way, I Just Do! Rather than telling readers how to think and feel, this book elicits the readers' own insights. I recommend it to anyone! It is especially helpful for those wishing to journal, but not knowing how to get started. Thanks, Veronica Slack, for this work.” -Becca Davis, LPC, CSAT Psychotherapist, Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

"This participating book series embodies a novel approach to creating a therapeutic positive self-awareness through the venue of writing half the book you are reading! The author uses a variety of philosophical questions, ideas, thoughts, comments, and confessions within a loosely structured framework that demands emotional participation from the reader. If a person is hurting, hard-headed, or too busy, I recommend this book series, as a form of support." -Dan Twilley DC, Chiropractic Physician and writer since 1980, Chattanooga, Tennessee)

 

"Veronica's book series embodies the way of transformation available to those of us who often are overwhelmed by what seems impossible. The systematic, daily actions she clearly presents in “I didn’t ask to think this way, I just do…” are the hand-holds which guide us out of chaos into order, internally than externally." Chaplain Marilyn Sizer., M.Div. Signal Mountain, Tennessee

 

 “I was totally impressed with the simplicity and ease of journaling that Volume 1 of Veronica's book series, “I didn’t ask to think this way, I just do…” provides. As it says, for the ones who are too busy or too hard-headed -this has often been me. The recovery journals relate a reminder to take the time to look at life in a positive manner through your own eyes and hands. To sum it up in short, co-writing put me much closer to God and His nature to supply what I need in any circumstance. If Only I WILL LOOK!” -Lance Thompson, Hixson, Tennessee 

 

 "I love this book, I run to it to journal when I am upset about an issue, even though I haven’t been in class for a couple of weeks, I still wrote in my book. It's like having a therapist around 24 hours a day.” –Tina, private client, Jasper, Tennessee

 

“Thank you very much for helping with my journey toward daily discovery of what secrets lie hidden in my mind.” -Patrick Anglea, Chattanooga, Tennessee

“I have started down what I thought was a dark and lonely road, however with Veronica’s help and guidance I have a light to light my path with the help of these wonderful and insightful books. Thank You.” Kelly Bruce, Chattanooga, Tennessee

 

                                   

The participating book series is designed to encompass all genders, all cultures, all races, and all beliefs, by way of the reader participating or co-writing the other half of the book according to their views.
