    Hope and understanding.

    My husband died of alcoholism, I have a daughter in recovery and a son in denial. This is a family disease. I have spent most of the last ten years dealing with addiction of those I love. I have read and read and read and this book offers absolutely the best explanation of alcoholism along with viable solutions to this dreadful disease. Thank you Dr. Urschel for giving me hope again. This book is a must read for anyone suffering with an alcoholic son, daughter, husband, wife, other relative or friend. Aloha.

    An absolute must have for those having difficulty with denial and those who support them

    This book deals with the BIOCHEMICAL side of addiction and the availability of options new to the science of recovery from addictions. Chapter 4 was VERY informative re: the newest drugs used to treat cravings and reverse brain damage. This book has changed my life in my approach to being a support person with the biochemical aspect of this world wide disease and focusses on the reality that powerless is indeed a crises that needs to be addressed on a scientific level as well as very useful tips on lifestyle changes. I bought two copies, one for my partner and myself so we could underline and compare our individual insight and usefulness to the things the book addresses.

    Healing the Addicted Brain

    This was a gift to my husband. He is a doctor specializing in Internal Medicine and Pain Management. He saw Harold Urschel on the Dr. Phil show and was very impressed with what he had to offer. He is also very impressed with his book and incorporates this information to his Pain Management patients.

    There is Hope!

    For anyone who is involved in addiction or knows someone who is this book is a must read! There is so much information contained in here and it offers so much hope to the addict as well as the family.I think every Rehab program and 12 step recovery program should also offer this as part of their program. Thank you Dr. Urscel for your wonderful insights.
