In Part Three: Case Studies Dr. Kipper and Steve Whitney invite all of us to "go ahead---put on an imaginary white coat. Observe each of these "patients" and...look for early clues that lead to our diagnosis and successful treatment." Then the authors lead you on a fascinating medical journey into the lives and treatment of several addict profiles.
The diagrams and Kipper's practical, down-to-earth voice easily convey the role brain chemistry and neurotransmitters play in addiction. My favorite part of all is Your Addiction Prediction. Every one should take this simple test to find out which neurotransmitter is most likely out of balance based on your (or your patient's) symptoms and family history.
The Addiction Solution is chock full of interesting stories and useful information. In the Ask A Doctor sidebars Dr. Kipper answers intriguing questions like: Why does a lottery winner become an addict after winning a million dollars? and Do dietary and holistic approaches to addiction actually work?
I'm a registered nurse and I highly recommend this book to anyone suffering from addiction and for all health care providers, friends and family members who want to help someone beat this disease.
