Fascinating and a game changer

I have been in the addiction field for 25 years and tried all kinds of approaches. Unbroken Brain with its unique perspective and compelling narratives is one of the most fascinating reads on the subject of addiction I have ever read. I recommend it to addicts and counselors. I look forward to reading her second book.

I came to this after reading the 4/28 NYT article both of which have blown me away and looking at causes of addiction and treatment both professionally and personally in a totally different way based on the current research.
I am reminded of those in my life who are addicted not to drugs but alcohol. Can all of the above be applied to alcohol addiction as well???
