    Evidence based, rational addiction recovery has finally arrived in America. The rest of the world has been practicing the medicalized, harm reduction model for decades. It's wonderful that we're finally getting hip to it here. For better or for worse, AA has had a lock on treatment in this country since its inception.

The rest of the world has been practicing the medicalized, harm reduction model for decades. It's wonderful that we're finally getting hip to it here. For better or for worse, AA has had a lock on treatment in this country since its inception. AA has saved millions of lives, but many AA stalwarts are unrealistically optimistic about the success rates of AA alone, are hostile to alternatives and psychotherapy, and adhere to an outdated etiology for addiction that leaves many of us scratching our heads and heading for the door. If you looking for a sane, rational approach to addiction and recovery, that integrates modern neuroscience evidence, psychology, psychopharmacology and 12 step, this is a great little book.This book is full of sensible, realistic information and advice for anyone with a brain who wants to get sober. Great book!

When drugs activate the dopamine system, the hippocampus switches on ensuring you will remember everything about the experience very clearly. (Heightened emotions cause string anchors.) This is CLASSIC CONDITIONING just like Pavlov. Therapy can heal the cortex but not the limbic region, however Campral can. It restores the balance in neuropathways which allows concentration on cortex based therapy.

    A comprehensive look at addiction from a biological and psychological point of view, written to be understood by a layperson. The book focuses on alcohol, but also touches on other substance abuse although many of the ideas could be used to cope with any kind of addiction. Also I found the worksheets to be useful in that they could help motivate a person to become involved in his/her treatment in a concrete fashion. Highly recommended to anyone who is dealing with addiction or whose life is impa A comprehensive look at addiction from a biological and psychological point of view, written to be understood by a layperson.

    This book was one of the best I've read on understanding addiction. It set me on a mission to better understand addiction as a physical and not just "mental" illness. Until the medical community, insurance companies and the general public wake up to this fact - we'll continue with our overcrowded jails, extremely high addiction rates and very low successful recovery rates.

    Alcohol addiction is a chronic, treatable disease of the brain; this book presents step-by-step guidelines for staying sober and preventing relapse. This information presented in the book is based on the science of addiction and employing pharmaceutical interventions; not the spiritual surrender often promoted as the single path to recovery.

    I learned a lot from the first third of the book and I learned some from the rest. The majority of the book would be really helpful for the addict. There are alot of ideas and workbook things that you can downlowd from the website. If the addict will do them I could see the benefit.

    As a layman this book struck me as throughly comprehensive in speaking to addicts and families of addicts. Mindset, Medicine, therapy, diet, lifestyle changes and more. So many people are plagued with addictions to drugs and alcohol. This is a great resource. The only thing that is majorly missing is the need for Christ in the process of recovery. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Interesting! It promises to change our attitude on addiction claiming it to be a treatable brain disease with an over 90% success rate.
