By Lance M. Dodes
#8831 Finally, a road map to recovery from the nation’s most original thinker on addiction!
This book presents a comprehensive guide outlining seven critical steps to overcome addiction, based on the author’s findings. Through his practice and research, Dodes has found that virtually every addictive act is preceded by feelings of helplessness. In his refreshingly clear style, he incorporates case stories to illustrate exactly how these feelings set addiction in motion, how to recognize the path toward addiction – and then how to take back control.
Many people, discouraged by current treatments, have been hungry for an approach that digs addiction up by its roots. Since the publication of his previous book, The Heart of Addiction, Dodes’s ideas have been incorporated by therapists and treatment centers around the country, and are taught by universities and training centers for clinicians.
With special sections for both families and health-care professionals, Breaking Addiction is poised to be the handbook for a new, comprehensive, and in-depth understanding of addiction.
