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.
