The road to health
Perhaps you've heard that
excessive drinking is a character defect--- decadent behavior brought on by a
lack of self-control. Proponents of this philosophy champion the psychological
approach to treatment. The success rate for this approach is less
than 20% after a one year review ... about
as successful as no treatment at all.
Research has Shown: Conventional "talk therapy" treatment alone yields
far less effective results than treatment including biochemical repair. The
consistent findings of hundreds of studies published over the last two decades
yield abstinence-at-follow-up results no better than 25 - 30%.
