    A friend of mine gave this to me to help me understand a little about the problems with my brother I really wanted to get behind this book, but it read a little too much like a sales brochuer.The ideas in this book about addiction and alcoholism really resonated with me I liked the concept that there was something underlying addiction I liked the idea that addiction was simply a symptom of other issues that needed to be dealt with It made sense However, I wonder if that is just the case because [...]

    Helped me a lot and gave me a new direction in overcoming my addiction problem I recommend this book to anyone that s struggling with alcoholism or any other type of addiction This booked gave me hope and helped me to understand the roots of my problems that ignite my addict behaviors.

    This book gives a different perspective to the commonality A perspective from a person who is not dependent on substances to clearly see and understand the struggle of a person who is dependent on substances Also, in continuing the sense of perspective, that there are other avenues to achieve a successful recovery than the traditional AA or NA That being said, if the potential reader is adamant that AA or NA is the only way to achieve recovery, I would not recommend this book to them Also, if th [...]

    sIn many ways, this book is a snake in the grass That is not to say that it is without value, but rather to say that the author takes a while to tip his hand at his true agenda The book begins with the assumption that the reader is addicted to alcohol or some other substance, and proceeds to attempt to win the sympathies of the reader by discussing, both from the author s view as well as his son s view, that young man s struggle with addiction to heroin, cocaine, and alcohol The author uses this [...]

    One of the best books on recovery I have ever read A refreshing perspective.

    I write about schizophrenia, not alcoholism, but I find The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure very informative even if alcoholism or addiction is not your particular problem On the surface, schizophrenia seems to have nothing in common with alcoholism and addiction There are no 12 step programs for schizophrenia To begin with, the author doesn t shy away from using the word cure He doesn t consider alcoholism or addiction either incurable or a disease These are symptoms that are coping mechanisms th [...]

    Yes, yes, it took me nearly three years to finish this book It is not a book you really want to have to read, but when it became quite apparent that my husband s brother needed serious intervention with his alcoholism, I tried to educate myself by reading several books and research articles, as well as talking with numerous treatment centers and therapists He has been through various treatment programs, has been hospitalized numerous times, spent several months last year in jail for a felony DUI [...]

    The story the author and his son tell about the son s addiction is interesting and compelling, and there is undoubtedly some merit to a holistic approach to addiction treatment Of course many substance abusers would benefit from intensive therapy Of course many substance abusers are self medicating for undiagnosed untreated improperly treated underlying issues However, this book ultimately reads like a 300 page ad for the author s unbelievably expensive luxury rehab facility I know someone who c [...]

    Though I ve heard holistic approaches to medicine have worked in some cases, I was never a big fan of it But when a friend who battled bulimia on and off for several years read The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure A Holistic Approach to Total Recovery by Passages Malibu directors Chris and Pax Prentiss, she d felt a huge burden being lifted from her shoulders So much, that she loaned me the book.The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure gave me a different perspective halfway through Though the book touche [...]

    I was dubious about this guy when I bought the book very cheaply and was quite prepared to throw it into the nearest bin at any moment There was nothing in the book that inspired that reflex The man talks sense Addicts will continue to relapse until they work out what it is that they re attempting to protect themselves from with substances I m deeply envious of the facilities available in his treatment centre, apart from the fact that it s in Malibu Many, many of the interventions that they use [...]

    I think it s a very refreshing perspective on addiction, which in my opinion is NOT a disease but ultimately it comes down to a choice Disease, to me, says poor me and makes me weak , which I am not I m making a decision to stop doing something that is causing nothing but destruction in my life and in the lives of my loved ones by affiliation and association There are components to the AA program, which I think are positive and extremely useful, like breaking things down to smaller and manageab [...]

    I work in the alternative and holistic medicine field, so the methods used in this book to address the foundation of self abuse were not new to me As a matter of fact, they are some of the same methods we use to address deficiencies in general I certainly honor and respect Chris and Pax for the place in which this book comes from The constant reminders of personal choice and philosophy, caring for your temple, honoring yourself and others I bought the book because my 18 yr old son has been flirt [...]

    Enjoyed it Introduced some topics that may be hard to swallow for those that believe alcoholism and drug addiction is a disease that can never be cured But if you have a hard time with the traditional 12 step program and staying sober, this is good food for thought Personally, the topics introduced are the ones by which I lead my own life, so they came as second nature Mainly that what ever happens to you, no matter how horrible, is part of the journey that leads you where you are supposed to be [...]

    This book provided a good holistic way to get CURED of your alcoholism and or drug addiction It offers many alternatives to Alcoholics Anonymous, and really offers a way OUT of your addiction This book would be a very good addition to the MUST READ, AA Not the Only Way, which not only provides a multitude of options that are available, but also has a comprehensive directory of licensed professionals and treatment programs all over the U.S and abroad, including ALL of their contact information Me [...]

    I believe the Prentiss approach is a very useful new approach to healing addiction Pax s personal narrative CH 2 is inspiring and his relationship with his father is also inspiring Many addicts do not have such a father in their life to look out for them and stand by them the way Chris did, but this story is an inspiration to all men to be better fathers to their sons Prentiss gets down to the real solutions not your personal that s up to you and your treatment , but the solutions that will help [...]

    I think this book is an invaluable resource for anyone struggling to understand the nature of addiction The personal story of the author s son and how he almost lost his life to hard core drugs was very enlightening and made you see how someone could get caught up in that world Methods the book gave for finding the underlying causes of addictions were also extremely interesting as well I thought this book followed gospel principles of using faith and agency to overcome problems Apparently other [...]

    This book is misleading in that the author claims there is no such thing as alcoholism or an addict If this is true, why write a book about the cure It is a marketing ploy Though he makes a few good suggestions, his only real life experience education is in dealing with his son s addiction He and his son now own and operate a recovery center in Malibu I m sure it is helpful to many, but I don t like the fact that he uses this title to sell books IT IS VERY MISLEADING I like Chris other books, bu [...]

    Stephanie
    This book provided a refreshing perspective on treating alcoholism and addiction The fact that these conditions have a root cause seems obvious, but can clearly be overlooked I liked some of Prentiss thoughts on treatment approaches, but was very uncomfortable with his life philosophy His spiritual guidance prevents me from recommending this to others I also felt his son s testimonial was too long and provided temptation and how tos for drug addicts than were necessary.

    Beth
    For those looking for an honest approach, dealing with life change and causation, the book is of value Pioneer in that it moves away from the self defeating word, alcoholic Contains a chapter on the four causative effects.Quote from the book I opened their minds to the possibility that they were not addicts or alcoholics, but just guys like me who were medicatating their fears.

    Rachel
    A great resource for holistic addiction recovery as an alternative to the AA model.
