Bookviews.comJames DeSena, Ph.D., is an authority on alcohol and drug addiction who has come to the conclusion that there are healthier and more effective alternatives to the traditional Alcohol Anonymous and 12-Step treatments. Based on his personal and professional experience and research, he has written an excellent book, Overcoming Your Alcohol, Drug and Recovery Habits. "Bad medicine and faith healers have harmed vulnerable people for ages," says the author, and he cites the way too many addiction treatment providers often have their addicted patients returning time and time again without success. He says, though, that addicts can quit for good and do so without therapists and others. Studies clearly show that nearly 80% of people who quit alcohol and drug addictions did so on their own. His book takes a hard look at the addiction treatment industry and, at the same time, charts the path for those who want to quit. I heartily recommend this book.---Alan Caruba, charter member of the National Book Critics Circle.
