Addicted to Addicts: Survival 101 – Drugs to Treat Drug Addiction or Not?

This week’s show is about treating drug addiction without other drugs. The guest today is Carolyn Reuben, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Alliance for Addiction Solutions, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to using acupuncture, nutrition, exercise, and other mind-body integration techniques to repair the brains of people with addictive and mental health disorders. She is a licensed acupuncturist, medical journalist, and the author of four self-help health books.

In our discussion, she refers to Julia Ross, the author of The Diet Cure and the Mood Cure, and Kathleen DesMaisons PhD, founder of the online treatment community called Radiant Recovery

Another reference she would like to share is Bridging the Gaps, an Integrative Addiction Treatment that uses a unique holistic approach addressing the physical, spiritual and psychological aspects of addiction.
