What People are Saying About This
"A very up-to-date 'Consumer's Guide' to the best-of-the-best in addiction solutions. A must read for everyone trying to help solve this problem."
-Mark F. Kern,Founder and Director of Addiction Alternatives and Life Managements Skills, Inc.
"An instant classic, Professors Cloud and Granfield carefully show how solving existential problems is the only way people 'recover' from the metaphorical disease called 'addiction.' Recovery from Addiction should be required reading for anyone who believes addiction 'treatment' is necessary, let alone effective."
-Jeffrey A. Schaler,Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Justice, Law and Society,American University, Washington, DC, and author of Addiction Is a Choice
"In Recovery from Addiction, Drs. Cloud and Granfield have illuminated the secret side of addiction. The model of addiction most prominently paraded in American culture today represents a one sided view built on observations of the behavior of a MINORITY of persons suffering from addictive disorders, i.e., those unable to make positive changes without some type of outside intervention. In dispelling the myth of the universality of that model, Cloud and Granfield accurately describe how persons fall into addiction and the characteristics of the majority of this group who develop and follow strategies for unassisted positive change. This book is must reading for addiction students, educators and those desiring a reality based understanding of addictive behavior."
