Editorial Reviews


"Dr. Morteza Khaleghi is one of America's leading experts on addiction and a beacon of hope to addicts everywhere. A trusted advisor on the Dr. Phil Show, he has successfully helped countless individuals quit drugs and alcohol by confronting the underlying emotional issues as well as tackling the addiction itself.”—Dr. Phil McGraw

Anatomy of Addiction is a resource for those willing to go to any lengths to maintain their recovery.  For those of us who know what is possible in recovery and understand our responsibility to continue our care, this book is a necessity."--Christopher Kennedy Lawford, author of Symptoms of Withdrawl

"It is rare that a book can successfully create a tone that is supportive while also being informative, friendly while also being directive, and engaging while also being based on sound research.  Drs. Morteza and Karen Khaleghi accomplish just this in The Anatomy of Addiction. If you are new to recovery, this book will give you direction.  If you have struggled with relapse, this book is, quite simply, a must read."--Lee Jampolsky, Ph.D., author of Healing the Addictive Personality and Smile for No Good Reason

"Morteza and Karen Khaleghi convincingly demonstrate how psychological issues like depression and trauma can cause relapse. More importantly, they show how to address these issues effectively. Their decades of experience come through brilliantly in this important book."--Jeff Jay, coauthor of Love First: A Family Guide to Intervention

This is a great summary of the latest research on addiction, co-occuring diseases, and internal and external locus of control.
