In 1983, HCI published one of the landmark books in recovery, Adult Children of Alcoholics by Dr. Janet Woititz. Virtually spawning the ACOA movement and still a perennial seller, Woititz’s book inspired a new way of looking at the impact of alcoholism on future generations. The book became the first in a string of New York Times bestsellers for HCI, followed by John Bradshaw's Healing the Shame That Binds You which continues to be a recovery staple worldwide. In 1993 HCI released Chicken Soup for the Soul, 101 Stories, and continued to publish titles in that New York Times bestselling series through 2012, with over 100 million copies sold. 

HCI has come a long way since its roots in recovery and the life-changing Chicken Soup for the Soul series with an expansive list of contemporary voices. It has won awards for its books and works in consort with its own conference and magazine division. After thirty plus years of publishing, one thing remains the same — the voices published by HCI will always be dedicated to making a difference in the lives of readers.
