The Addiction Solution introduces a revolutionary scientific breakthrough – a stunning new medical paradigm that finally frees patients from the on-again off-again treadmill of addiction.
Written in plain language with engaging illustrations and easy-to-read charts and graphs, this book clarifies and explains everything anyone ever touched by the disease of addiction needs to know – from its recently revealed genetic determination to the newly developed medical treatment (and complementary behavioral therapies) that successfully target the biochemical issues that are its root cause.
Yes, it’s now been scientifically proven that addiction is an inherited, neuro-chemical disease originating in brain chemistry, determined by genetics, and triggered by stress.
Flowing from this landmark discovery, a new medical protocol has been developed that – for the first time – safely and effectively treats addiction. . . and with none of the torturous and even life-threatening aspects of the now outmoded traditional method.
Both of these breakthroughs resulted from an explosion in the biomedical technology that discovered and then cracked the genetic code of life, allowing scientists to both “read” DNA and “see” brain chemistry in ways never before possible.
The Addiction Solution moves step-by-step through the most basic levels of the new paradigm and all the other issues surrounding addiction that must now be reevaluated and often redefined in light of this extraordinary leap forward. As such, it’s the new starting point for unlocking the puzzle of how addiction really works and how it can be successfully treated.
It draws composite case histories to illustrate how the innovative Personal Recovery Program works in practice, customizing treatment for each of a diverse group of addicts abusing a wide variety of different substances – from the first day of treatment to its successful resolution.
It cites research data and sources, reviews myths and vernacular, and offers resources for treatment and support.
It also previews the future medical innovations and treatments that will inevitably spring forth from the new paradigm.
The Addiction Solution is a complete consumer guide to a world made brand new by the enormous – some say “miraculous” – paradigm shift in the treatment of addiction.

Rarely has society been in greater need of a new medical paradigm. For more than a century, traditional 28-day lockdown behavioral treatment has failed on a catastrophic scale – consistently hovering around a 90% failure rate. In that time, addiction has moved from a sporadic, mostly urban dilemma to arguably America’s most widespread and serious health problem. And each succeeding generation spawns more new addicts. No indictment of the old conventional method could be more damning. . . nor more persuasive of the need for change.
And yet, too many addicts are still forced into the traditional treatment model that has completely failed 90% of them.
Why? Because until very recently, they had no other option.
But with the new paradigm now available, addicts have an opportunity to choose between an obsolete method that fails 90% of the time and a new, safe medical treatment supported by the scientific community and the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) that, with compliance, actually succeeds in just over 90% of all cases.
To seize that choice, the proven scientific precepts and verifiable facts of the new paradigm must be dispersed as widely as possible. Comparisons to the failed conventional method must be made in every detail. The new, successful paradigm must become as ingrained in all our minds as the old, failed, and traditional method.
The Addiction Solution sets out to do just that. It’s long overdue. . . and necessary in the extreme.

For far too long, the vast majority of addicts were powerless to effect significantly positive change in their lives. While their efforts were often courageous and genuine, the traditional method of treatment did not work simply because it could not address the biochemical flaw we now know is the root cause of addiction.
Merely the newly discovered knowledge that addiction is a chronic but imminently treatable disease empowers addicts to take control of their lives and instills in them a lifelong commitment to wellness.
But the new paradigm does much more than that – indeed, it actually fixes addiction.
Leaving behind the dark and dangerous landscape of the old, failed treatments, the new paradigm offers both the hope and the promise of lives fully restored from the ashes of addiction.
