But they don't just criticize. They provide a solid, research-and-experience-based alternative approach that has proven to be successful in overcoming the scourges of suicide, depression, addiction, and drug-related deaths. The authors show that maturing out of addiction and childhood behavioral problems is a normal process - unless people are sidetracked by the widespread and commonplace therapies that undercut natural growth and self-confidence. They present extensive research data about natural recovery and case studies of fully recovered adults and of children with various conditions, for a developmental model of addiction that has been proven to help those who are suffering."

In these frank essays, leading American and Canadian writers explore their surprisingly diverse personal experiences with this complex phenomenon, candidly recounting what happened when alcohol, heroin, smoking, food, gambling, or sex - sometimes in combination - took over their lives."
