There is hardly a family that hasn’t been affected in some way by addiction, yet seeking treatment for a struggling loved one is, for most people, a frightening and overwhelming prospect.
Ending Addiction for Good will help end that trend. Drawing on their histories of addiction and recovery, authors Taite and Scharff examine the unique and highly successful treatment protocol practiced at the Cliffside Malibu Addiction Treatment Center. Scharff, a Jewish hog farmer, and Taite, forced into yeshiva as a teen for being unruly, turned adversity and feeling like outcasts in the Jewish community into an individualized, evidence-based, and integrated approach to addiction treatment that is seven times more effective than “traditional” therapies. In their personal stories and research, they empower those suffering to begin their recovery. Ending Addiction for Good outlines a treatment protocol that is Jewish-friendly and pushes beyond the shame that keeps addicts and their families suffering. This hopeful, encouraging book grabs hold of readers and ignites their dreams.
