ABOUT ENDING ADDICTION FOR GOOD

 

In Ending Addiction for Good, authors, Taite and Scharff present their personal true-life struggles with addiction and how they eventually overcame their problems. Each discovered solutions that were widely understood in the treatment community, but not put together into a comprehensive, holistic treatment protocol. Using this knowledge, Taite created the Cliffside Malibu addiction treatment center. Scharff became an addiction researcher, delving into the scientific evidence base to learn how addiction grabs hold of addicts and how, exactly, addiction is overcome.

 

Taite and Scharff delve into the nature of addiction and addiction recovery, focusing on addiction as a behavioral disorder. They suggest that at least in early sobriety, a focus on facing and healing past painful or traumatic episodes is of utmost importance in overcoming addiction. To do this, they introduce readers to the “Stages of Change” model, a method of creating psychological change developed in the 1990s, to help addicts at any stage of readiness to change – from complete denial to a deep understanding of and willingness to overcome their addiction. The authors also provide a brief discussion on many of the concomitant treatments that an addict may need in addition to in-depth psychotherapy – so that body, mind, and spirit are all treated simultaneously. This book brings a strong message of hope: recovery is possible for even the most desperate addicts.
