Summary
Twelve-step programs are one of the most popular ways of treating addiction, but are they the best? Here, Tony Bevacqua questions the efficacy of these approaches and offers a different way of looking at addiction that takes into account his work with clients in his private practice and other studies done on the notion of addiction as a disease. Breaking new ground in the area of addiction, his work will offer clients and practitioners an alternative route forward
