Description

By the age of 56, Kathleen S had tried just about everything to quit drinking. Nothing worked. A binge drinker who felt she was already living on borrowed time (two of her brothers died of addiction-related causes in their 40s), her life and health were rapidly breaking down. Then one day she heard a radio advertisement for a treatment program that promised to take away her cravings forever. Much of the addiction treatment in the United States is based on AA attendance and working a twelve-step program. AA is often looked at by physicians, insurance companies, and especially members themselves as the only legitimate form of recovery from substance abuse. This book describes another program, one that advertises a 72% cure rate. THE LITTLE HOSPITAL THAT COULD "This book says it all. Staying sober has been a piece of cake for me since Schick Shadel." -- Chet "Kathy's description of the treatment is right on, and I should know, being a former patient and 20-year graduate of the program. I laughed and cried along with her, and share her joy in her new, alcohol-free life."-- Pat O'Day, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Broadcaster, concert promoter, businessman "I am glad that one of our patients, Kathleen S, wrote a book about the treatment from the patient's perspective. This book is written factually, with warmth and humor. I hope it will encourage others to give up their addiction and regain their lives again." --James W. Smith, M.D., Chief of Staff, Schick Shadel Hospital
