The news is good -- addiction can be conquered! 

If you are concerned about addictive behavior -- by your family, friends, co-workers or yourself -- then you must understand addiction and the effects it has on these people. In this manual, Dr. Griggs provides the current medical model for addiction. It is not a moral failure, but a medical disease like cancer, heart disease or diabetes, that responds to treatment. Addiction of all types is now understood as a genetic brain disorder.

Using this manual, you will understand the addictive drugs, how one becomes addicted to them, and suffers their consequences. Stories of typical patients illustrate the slippery slope they take down the hill into the thicket of drugs and lose their way. Dr. Griggs provides a proven recovery plan and walks with you on the path out of the wilderness of addiction.
