Recovery from addiction is an ongoing process that requires continued growth on your part. Memorial Hermann Prevention & Recovery Center’s recovery bookstore “Carry the Message” is an onsite resource center and gift shop for patients, families and the general public.

Our recovery bookstore provides you and your family convenient access to recovery related books and other resources. Our inventory will help you become more grounded in your recovery and will enrich your personal development.

You will also find many recovery related gifts for yourself, family and friends. Finally, we stock personal hygiene and daily use items that you might need during your stay with us.

12 Step Books & Resources

PaRC’s recovery bookstore carries resources for Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous and Cocaine Anonymous. We also carry resources for many other 12-step programs such as Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous, Overeaters Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous and more.

In addition to materials for your own development, PaRC’s recovery bookstore carries a selection of Al-Anon related materials for your family. Those resources provide your family members with insight into addiction and the dynamics of a family system and insight into their own recovery from the effects of your addiction. When you and your family all have a better understanding of the disease of addiction and the process involved in recovery, you will be more successful and so will your family.
