MALIBU, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The authors of Ending Addiction for Good: The Groundbreaking, Holistic, Evidence-Based Way to Transform Your Life are offering a free download of the Amazon bestseller from January 23rd to January 27th.  They are hoping to spread the word about a groundbreaking addiction treatment program that has already helped hundreds of addicts to achieve long-term recovery and thrive.

Almost everyone these days is touched by addiction. This book offers a cutting-edge protocol for ending addictions to:

  • Drugs
  • Alcohol
  • Prescription painkillers
  • Smoking
  • Gambling
  • Sex & porn

The methods outlined in this book also work to successfully treat conditions such as:

  • Depression
  • Eating Disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep Disorders

Authors Richard Taite and Constance Scharff, PhD can personally attest to the power of the recovery treatment in Ending Addiction for Good. Taite, a native Californian and UCLA graduate, is the CEO of Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center. He writes, "I spent twenty years as a full-blown drug addict.  For the first ten years, I never thought about stopping. Getting high was my sole purpose in life...In my years of operating Cliffside Malibu, I have seen only a handful of addicts who were as bad as I was."  

Scharff also struggled with addiction. She took her first sip of alcohol at age 11 and by her early twenties, was a two-liter-a-day drinker. Now she is the full-time Addiction Researcher and Transformative Studies Scholar at Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center and an international speaker on the topic of addiction.

In Ending Addiction for Good, Taite and Scharff champion the Stages of Change model created by renowned psychologist Dr. James Prochaska.  Change involves moving through five stages: precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action and maintenance. By identifying the particular stage of change that a client is in, a therapist can create an individualized treatment plan to help the client progress through each successive change.  Individualizing treatment programs makes all the difference in the world.

"Once I started working with a therapist whose psychological interventions were based on moving me through the stages of change, I was able to stop using drugs," writes Taite.
