Spirituality is a powerful thing, but just how powerful? Can connecting with one's soul help kick addictive behaviors?

Expert therapist Dr. Carder Stout believes that the soul's authentic voice has the ability to heal addictive cycles and completely remove them from the psyche. The soul is pure consciousness untethered from human experience, and Dr. Stout has maintained sobriety for seventeen years by utilizing this untapped resource. In turn, he has successfully treated numerous clients for addiction and other mental health conditions using the same technique. It is with this expertise, he breaks down his theory of "We Are All Addicts" in a compellingly readable guide.

We Are All Addicts: The Soul’s Guide to Kicking Your Compulsions presents a spiritual approach to ridding the mind of the complex problems created by addiction. These solutions to obsessive thinking and compulsive behaviors are unconventional, and have previously been shared exclusively with his patients in therapy. . . until now. Through exercises, meditations, visualizations and writing, Dr. Stout will demonstrate how to connect deeply to your soul. Readers will not only gain an understanding of the addiction holding them back, but how to overcome it through self-honesty and self-love.
