Publisher's Summary

The breakthrough program to end relapse, end suffering, and achieve total recovery from all dependencies.
Passages, in Malibu, California, is the world's most successful addiction cure center. The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure contains the three-step holistic program to total recovery that is the basis of the miraculous success of Passages. In this revolutionary book, you will learn:

The three steps to permanent sobriety
How to create a personalized, holistic treatment program to completely cure your dependency
The four causes of dependency
How your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs are key factors in your recovery
How to stimulate your body's self-healing potential to be forever free of dependency
"Freedom from dependency starts with understanding that alcohol, drugs, and addictive behaviors are not the real problems," says Chris Prentiss, cofounder of Passages Addiction Cure Center. "Alcohol, street drugs, nicotine, prescription medications, food bingeing, gambling, and the like are merely the substances or behaviors you or your loved ones are using to cope with the real problems - anything from deep emotional pain, ill health, or depression to hypoglycemia, a sluggish thyroid, or brain-wave pattern imbalances. Once the underlying problems are discovered and cured, the need for drugs, alcohol, or addictive behavior will disappear - along with the craving."
Prentiss should know. His son Pax was addicted to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol for ten years. They sought help everywhere, but Pax relapsed again and again. In desperation, they finally created their own holistic, hand-tailored program that was a complete break from all other programs and that combined several effective therapies. It saved Pax's life. Together, father and son founded Passages to help others find their own freedom.
For decades, we've been hearing that alcoholism and addiction are incurable diseases, but The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure

Critic Reviews

"This thought-provoking book causes any reader to closely examine their life. One of its premises is that it isn't the alcohol or drugs that are the problem; rather, it is usually a person's physical, mental or emotional imbalance that the substances seem to alleviate. If a person can identify the imbalance and heal it, then the drugs and alcohol are no longer lusted after....I highly suggest this book for anyone who wants to be cured or assist a loved one in finding their own cure!" ( Natural Beauty & Health)
"An excellent guide and resource book for anyone dealing with addiction, either for themselves or their families/friends....The program offers fresh hope to many for whom conventional treatments have not worked." ( Yoga & Health, Great Britain)
"An excellent resource for anyone dealing with addictions or trying to understand their life. It will help you to define yourself and your problem in a way that will empower you and end any victim mentality. It is written in a style that is easy to understand and learn from because it is written by natives: people who have lived the message....This book contains the information that can start you on the road to recovery." (Bernie Siegel, M.D., #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Medicine & Miracles)

not very helpful

Spends 90% of the time telling his sons story and not much info on specific ways to stop drugs or alcohol. Too much like "a million little pieces" and who needs to read that again.

war story/ drug-a-log

there was absolutely nothing unique about the first five hours or first half of this audiobook. In fact had this been spoken by an individual at any typical AA or NA meeting they would have put many too sleep and been prompted to get to a useful point. Any addict posseses the talent of dramatizing their behavior- however it doesn't take 5 hours to illustrate the insanity of addiction through personal war stories.
it appears too me that this so called recovered individual couldn't resist the temptation for one last stab at some old behavior, that is, dressing something up to appear as something it is not, all for a quick buck/fix.
