The Proven Scientific Approach to Conquering Addiction and Defeating the Disease

Healing the Addicted Brain is a breakthrough work that focuses on treating drug and alcohol addiction as a biological diseasebased on the Recovery Science program that has helped thousands of patients defeat their addictions over the past 10 years.
