The breakthrough three-step program that heals the underlying causes of dependency and ends relapse for alcoholics, addicts, and those with addictive behaviors.The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure contains the three-step holistic program to total recovery that is the basis of the miraculous success of Passages Malibu Addiction Cure Center in California, one of the world’s most successful addiction treatment centers. In this revolutionary book, you will learn:* The three steps to permanent sobriety* The four causes of dependency* How to create a personalized, holistic treatment program to completely cure your dependency* How your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs are key factors in your recovery* How to stimulate your body’s self-healing potential to be forever free of dependency“Freedom from dependency starts with understanding that alcohol, drugs, and addictive behaviors are not the real problems,” say Chris and Pax Prentiss, cofounders of Passages Malibu. “Alcohol, street drugs, nicotine, prescription medications, food bingeing, gambling, and the like are merely the substances or behaviors you or your loved ones are using to cope with the real problems—anything from deep emotional pain, ill health, or depression to hypoglycemia, a sluggish thyroid, or brain-wave pattern imbalances. Once the underlying problems are discovered and cured, the need for drugs, alcohol, or addictive behavior will disappear—along with the craving.”Chris Prentiss should know. His son Pax was addicted to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol for ten years. They sought help everywhere, but Pax relapsed again and again. In desperation, they finally created their own holistic, hand-tailored program that was a complete break from all other programs and that combined several effective therapies. It saved Pax’s life. Together, father and son founded Passages Malibu to help others find their own freedom.For decades, we’ve been hearing that alcoholism and addiction are incurable diseases, but The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure proves that this is a dangerous myth and that the label of “alcoholic” or “addict” destroys the promise of full recovery. Today, thousands are being freed from the old, limiting paradigms by using the groundbreaking approach spelled out in this book. As visionaries and innovators, Pax and Chris Prentiss bring new hope to people everywhere who are dependent on drugs, alcohol, or addictive behaviors.

This book does have some interesting info in it. However, about 1/3 of the book is really an infomercial for their clinic in Malibu called Passages. Nothing wrong with that, BUT, a clinic like that has infinitely more resources at their disposal than someone at home trying to do things on their own. In that there are not hypnotherapists, psychologists, etc., on hand. I found the section on uncovering the WHY of the 4 factors of dependency very revealing, and agree with it totally, BUT, the #1 reason stated, which was chemical imbalance, left me wanting. There was no discussion as to HOW to find out, or alleviate, a so called chemical imbalance. Its not like you can go to your family doctor and find this out; they will just look at you like you are nuts. Its one thing to say, you might have a chemical imbalance, but how do you know where that imbalance lies? and to alleviate it, or help it? In short, I was hoping to see much more practical day to day stuff such as, "eating this will definitely help" in terms of diet. There was nothing of this sort in this book. Some good info and help for sure, but.....I would give this, in term sof a letter grade, a B- at best.
