Every addictive drug and behavior is as unique as the individual caught in it. This audiobook abandons the recovery-industry one-size-fits-all mentality by separating each drug and behavior and provides strategies that are customized, specific, and detailed.
Addiction is a pathological disorder that affects every society and every culture on this planet and has for thousands of years. It is much more pervasive than other clinical disorders; it is a defect of brain chemistry, mental and emotional wellness, spirituality and character loss.
I have pioneered new terms: AD (Addictive Disorder) & APD (Addictive Personality Disorder) as well as new terms for recovery: AP, RP, and SP (Abstinence Phase, Recovery Phase, and Sobriety Phase).
This is one of the only books written by a science-minded, professional who also has 20 years of sobriety from 11 years of narcotics IV using. Most recovery programs and literature today are designed by clinicians who are well educated but cannot personally report on the ineffable experience of addiction and recovery. This lack of personal insight compromises their ability to truly understand and provide the full spectrum of recovery needs.
When I began my addiction-recovery I was woefully disappointed in the available programs, as it seems nothing authentic and cerebral was available, no matter how much money, time or commitment I had.
The multi-billion dollar recovery-industry, with less than a 9 percent success rate, needs an overhaul. The recovery industry regurgitates the same treatments, but AD sufferers deserve modern options that are appropriate for this progressive age. There are drugs in this new millennium that did not even exist when many of the current recoveries were established.
Project Addiction is a usable, innovative, unconventional guide covering the entire spectrum of addictive drugs and behaviors: what it's like to use them, abuse them, be addicted to them, and to liberate from them.

A terrible and dangerous book.
Having read many books about addiction, I must say that this book appears like a step back to the 1980's. I am very surprised anyone would write something like this in 2015.
It sounds more like a transcript from a Reagan angled propaganda TV show about drugs.
The fact that he literally says that addicts abuse because they are addicts at heart, not because of trauma, social environment, etc., that is just pure rubbish, and a dinosaur way of thinking.
Also, the claim that there is no such thing as safe or recreational use of drugs, that all drug use eventually lead to a spiral of increasing use and eventually abuse is just silly, lots of people have a healthy relationship with drugs.
And numerous other examples like this, which implies that the author is stuck in the past century when it comes to explaining the cause of and how to treat addiction.
He sounds like he is on coke or in a hurry to finish the narration as fast as possible.
This book should never have been written in the first place, it is disinformation and damaging .
Just say no! (to this book)
