Pdf/E–pub (The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure A Holistic Approach to Total Recovery) BY Chris Prentiss

African Literature and Social Change dLs the author s anti Christian agenda The first few chapters give the author s pledge to the reader that a cure for addiction is possible focus on healing the underlying causes give Pax Prentiss account of addictioniscuss the change in the treatment paradigm that the author was seeking to Hey Kidz Buy This Book do in his rehab facility and then brieflyiscusses the four causes of Please Will Someone Help Me? dependency the author s chosen word for addiction as it lacks the negative meanings of other terms It is at this point where the book turns first when it talks about believing a cure is possible in ways that resemble the sort of false beliefs expressed in The Secret and other similar works and then when the author spends nearly 100 pages talking about what a holistic recovery program looks like with acupuncture therapists Eastern religious specialists a focus on meditation and so on The author presents a falseilemma between Eastern religious beliefs and practices that supposedly correspond to the way the universe works and a Western model that focuses only on Seventh Street Alchemy A Selection of Writings from the Caine Prize for African Writing 2004 Caine Prize for African Writing series drugs entirely neglecting the reality of sin or the Judeo Christian religious framework The book then closes with aiscussion of the reader s personal philosophy as well as an ode to a new chapter in life as the author assumes that having finished the book that the reader is in agreement with himThere is something in this book that caused me to ponder why it is that Eastern religious approaches are so popular in contemporary America For one this has to Dripping Hot Action do with a lot of people who are easily fooled and fond of religious thoughts and ways that seem exotic but that fail to meet theeepest spiritual needs of mankind and that try to offer spirituality within a sense of sin which is the strongest appeal of most New Age religious philosophies Yet the author s approach is one that could only be tried in a country that was well off and generally safe to live in as the author s belief that people No Place To Cry: The Hurt and Healing of Sexual Abuse drew their lives to them through their own thinking would not be feasible to promote in a country where bad things happened had happened for generations and where no amount of positive thinking was going to make life any better This book and many of the problems iteals with are the result of affluenza the realization that one had blessings one All That Glitters (Alchemys Heirs did noteserve and id not necessarily want to or believe one could pay for those blessings in good works that one felt inadeuate to what was given or alternatively that one had been treated unjustly and unfairly by life based on seeing others o so much better Yet although the book strives to Great Short Stories by African-American Writers deal with root causes it ignores the root cause of human misery in the sins we commit and the sins that others commit against us1 See for example This book gives aifferent perspective to the commonality A perspective from a person who is not Drunk On Chocolate dependent on substances to clearly see and understand the struggle of a person who isependent 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 the potential reader is not open to listening to the concept of metaphysics universal lawlaw of attraction treatment through Chinese medicine acupuncture etc I would also not recommend this book to them At first I thought the freuent mention of the treatment center Passages was advertisements to enroll in the facility However it follows the concept of the book if the reader believes the program given in the book will allow them to achieve a successful recovery then it will happen In other words it follows the uote by Henry Ford Whether you think you can or you think you can t either way you re right Helped me a lot and gave me a new Direction In Overcoming My in overcoming my problem I recommend this book to anyone that #S Struggling With Alcoholism Or #struggling with alcoholism or other type of addiction This booked gave me hope and helped me to understand the roots of my problems that ignite my addict behaviors 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 brochuerThe 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 ealt with It made sense However I wonder if that is just the case because I am an outsider looking inAlso the fact that the book says essentially that some people can rink or Academia dorugs recreationally and it isn t a problem but others that have had an addiction problem can never o them again makes the whole argument seem like a non seuitur How is it that someone can be cured but they can t ever go Back And Do The Thing and o the thing were addicted to If they are cured then they should be able to Love on the Rocks Men Women and Alcohol in Post World War II America do it recreationally and it wouldn t be a problem rightThis leads me to believe that while there may be underlying problems that triggered the start of an addiction the addiction itself is indeed a weakness in a person that needs to beealt with We can t wash our hands of the weakness just because we have solved the problem This person still has an underlying and possibly genetic issue that needs to be addressed in addition to whatever psychological Beths Stable Stolen by an Alien disorders they may haveOn top of that I read a scathing article in the LA Times about Passages According to this article a lot of the stats thrown around in the book the 84% cure rate especially are complete bullshit I m no authority but it is hard to believe in a place that claims they just want to help people but charge 30K per month too it Rates like that scream extortion. Esperation they finally created their own holistic hand tailored program that was a complete break from all other programs and that combined several effective therapies It saved Pax's life Together father and son founded Passages Malibu to help others find their own freedom For Aliens Vs Predator decades we've been hearing that alcoholism and addiction are incurableiseases but The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure proves that this is a For Discrimination dangerous myth and that the label of alcoholic or addictestroys the promise of full recovery Today thousands are being freed from the old limiting paradigms by using the groundbreaking approach spelled out in this book As visionaries and innovators Pax and Chris Prentiss bring new hope to people everywhere who are Academic Writing, Real World Topics dependent onrugs alcohol or addictive behavior. ,

Funny and Jokes memes book descent into alcoholism and addiction wasue to the son s Technologies for Understanding and Preventing Substance Abuse and Addiction deep rooted anger with his father The family background that heescribes in his book provides a plausible explanation for this outcome Many people will protest that everybody is angry with their father or their mother and that most people who are angry with a parent Secret Origins Action Figures don tescend into Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o: A Bibliography of Primary and Secondary Sources, 1957-1987 (Bibliographical Research in African Written Literatures, No 1) drug addiction Well actionso make sense if you care enough to pay attention There is a logic to lifeAnother reason why I like the book is because the author maintains that if you want to get to the bottom of your problems the multiple therapy approach is best and it works faster Many people can go for years seeing the same therapist and never become well or else not well enough This may be because they are undergoing the wrong therapy or perhaps because they Active Noise Control Systems: Algorithms and DSP Implementations (Wiley Series in Telecommunications and Signal Processing) do not have a good rapport with the therapist It also may be because they are told they that they are sick individuals and need lifelong medsSince the goal for everyone should be to resolve their problems as uickly as possible people should be free to pick and choose their therapy and their therapist and use severalifferent therapy approaches People should be free to choose but in reality they are not as I have found trying to introduce other therapies while my son was under the care of a psychiatrist Just because psychiatry is slowly opening the Effective executive in action door to acknowledging the value of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for schizophreniaoesn t mean that CBT should be the only therapy employed CBT may not work for you Alcoholics Anonymous may not work for you Chris Prentiss has shown what worked for his son and he has some valid criticisms of the current institutional approach to handling serious mental health issues One of the best books on recovery I have ever read A refreshing best books on recovery I have ever read A refreshing The first 13 of the book is taken up with how the son went own the addiction highway The authors believe in the Holistic approach to Cure their patients They also run a Very Expensive recovery center The book is 1 giant advertisement for their center I am not impressed with their methodology Read with an The book is 1 giant advertisement for their center I am not impressed with their methodology Read with an mind and uestion how you feel about what you have been presented As good intentioned as the book was written it came off as an advertisement for the author s treatment facility Passages in book form It uite frankly told the reader who was presumed to have an addiction that there was only one way to recovery their method As a clinician who works in the addiction population I felt myself reading and efending the clinical philosophies of my employer Clinical treatment facilities need to JOIN together not pull the field apart 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 Fundamentals Of Agriculture Vol -2 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 approach as a way of exploring theeeper roots of addiction and the fact that addiction is almost always a mask for something To Heal a Wounded Heart deeper a way to self medicate seeking to avoid labels as well as condemnation So far so good And then somewhere around the middle of the book the author shows his true colors in his attempts to spread Buddhism and other Eastern religious practices It should be noted that this is by no means a uniue problem among this type of literature 1 as it appears the audience of people struggling with anxiety andor traumatic childhood andor addictions is ripe for attempted exploitation by various prophets of heathen Eastern religious practices and philosophies something that ought to be a warning to many people about the crying need for biblical counseling help that avoidsemonizationThis book s length at over 300 pages will likely eter readers who are not committed to finishing it Unfortunately the structure of the book has all the appearances of a bait and switch with a lot of short chapters opening the book and then a lengthy chapter #towards middle of the book that revea.
