Staying Clean & Sober By David Miller, Ph.D. , Merlene Miller,
M.A. ISBN 1-58054-391-X Pages: 288 Size: 5.5 x
8.5 Format: Paperback Published: 09/15/05 Perhaps you
or someone you love has tried unsuccessfully once, twice or more
to gain and maintain freedom from addiction. The truth is that
many addicts make upwards of fifty attempts to gain sobriety,
only to relapse again and again. Many people say that these
failed attempts at sobriety result from a lack of willpower. But
this is simply not so. Addiction is largely a disease of the
brain, and the biochemical imbalances associated with it creat
chronic abstinence-based symptoms--such as anxiety, confusion,
severe cravings and depression--that often lead to relapse. For
many individuals, staying sober and free from addiction means
living with severe emotional, mental, and physical pain--unless
proper brain chemistry is restored. In this book, addiction
recovery experts Merlene and David Miller present many
revolutionary and emerging treatment options for not only
gaining sobriety, but maintaining it as well.
