How many more have to die before we acknowledge that our treatment industry and society in general do not understand drug and alcohol addiction nor how to effectively treat it?
Our current "paradigm" is to deny the influence and power of human consciousness, of our thinking and thought process, and make the cause of drug and alcohol addiction to be something other than our mind.
The general consensus is that the cause of addiction is something physical in nature, that drug and alcohol addiction has little if anything to do with the thinking and thought process of the addict or alcoholic, but has everything to do with the functioning of the brain.
The implication of such a "paradigm" is that when the physical problem or component is discovered and then able to be fixed that there will be a solution or cure to drug and alcohol addiction. How is this type of strategy working out today?
