The proven scientific approach that can triple the success rate of patients from 20-30% to 90% in conquering addiction and defeating the disease.

Healing the Addicted Brain is a breakthrough book on addiction and recovery that focuses on drug addiction and alcohol recovery as a biological disease based on the Recovery Science program that has helped thousands of patients defeat their addictions over the past 10 years. It combines the best behavioral addiction treatments with the latest scientific research into brain functions, providing tools and strategies designed to overcome the biological factors that cause addictive behavior along with proven treatments and medications.

Using this scientific approach, you will learn to conquer the physical factors that keep people tied to drug and alcohol addiction. The proven fact is addiction is not a moral failing or an issue of not having enough willpower. It is a disease of the brain that can and must be treated like other chronic medical illnesses-such as diabetes, hypertension, or asthma-in order to defeat it.
