Synopsis: This book presents a contemporary breakthrough view of substance addiction and recovery and outlines the components of a comprehensive, scientific, state-of-the art approach for the treatment of chemical dependency and addiction. It discusses psychosocial, psychobiological, and other aspects of addiction. The authors explore the dynamics of the development of Alcoholics Anonymous and the limitations of its 12-step fellowship approach to recovery. Topics include: drugs as self-medication, the reward pathwways of the brain, the psychology and physiology of craving, the psychodynamics of addiction and recovery, cultural attitudes towards drugs and alcohol, the need for legal and criminal justice reform, and the role of defense mechanisms in addiction and recovery.

About the Author: Dr. Nikakhtar is a world renowned professional in the field of medicine, psychiatry and public healthe. She is the founder of the Substance Abstinence Treatment program, a unique State-of-the-Art Treatment Program--the first of its kind--that replaces traditional recovery approaches with an effective, scientific-medical treatment model. She's on the clinical faculty at UCLA and advisory Board of Metropolitan State Hospital, and has received many awards and certificates of recognition from distinguished organizations.

Dr. Markert, a distinguished professor of counselor education at California State University, Fresno, moved with his family to Los Angeles in 1997. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Substance Abstinence Treatment program and works as a chemical dependency counselor and researcher, and independent writer and corporate trainer.
