By (author): Douglas Braun-Harvey

Braun-Harvey’s manual deserves to become widely adopted at treatment centers across the United States and beyond. His approach offers an effective method for mitigating the shame that binds people to their addictions. In doing so, it may help pave the way to protracted recovery.”–Journal of Groups in Addiction and Recovery

The curriculum…provides a vision for chemical dependency treatment I have attempted to address for many years. This looks like an approach that finally meets this need.”

Eli Coleman, PhD
Director of the Program in Human Sexuality
University of Minnesota

In this new evidence-based curriculum…Doug Braun-Harvey challenges our attitudes and beliefs, as well as our traditional ways of providing treatment….This material on sexual health can help to provide a missing piece for many recovering addicts.”

Stephanie S. Covington, PhD, LCSW
Author, Women and Addiction: A Gender-Responsive Approach

For men and women in addiction recovery, sexual behavior linked with drug or alcohol use is too often the primary reason for relapse. When sexuality is not directly and positively addressed in drug and alcohol treatment, it can result in treatment failure or relapse.

This group facilitator’s guide introduces a pioneering, evidence-based curriculum, designed to integrate concepts of sexual health, current sex research, and recent developments in relapse prevention research. With this guide, group facilitators can offer clients a positive and safe forum within which to understand and change their sex/drug- linked behaviors.

  • Requires no specialized training, and can be integrated into a wide variety of treatment programs with all types of clientele
  • Contains lesson plans on dating and relationships, spirituality and sexuality, non-consensual sex, out-of-control sexual behavior, and more
  • Complete with suggested group activities, guided discussions, questions, role- plays, and more
  • Has been proven to improve client retention and decrease sexual behavioral problems

By (author): Institute of Medicine, Food and Nutrition Board, Food Forum

On July 9-10, 2014, the Institute of Medicine’s Food Forum hosted a public workshop to explore emerging and rapidly developing research on relationships among the brain, the digestive system, and eating behavior.

ADHD Does Not Exist: The Truth About Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder


Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Richard Saul

In this groundbreaking and controversial book, behavioral neurologist Dr. Richard Saul draws on five decades of experience treating thousands of patients labeled with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder—one of the fastest growing and widely diagnosed conditions today—to argue that ADHD is actually a cluster of symptoms stemming from over 20 other conditions and disorders.

According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 6.4 million children between the ages of four and seventeen have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. While many skeptics believe that ADHD is a fabrication of drug companies and the medical establishment, the symptoms of attention-deficit and hyperactivity are all too real for millions of individuals who often cannot function without treatment. If ADHD does not exist, then what is causing these debilitating symptoms?

Over the course of half a century, physician Richard Saul has worked with thousands of patients demonstrating symptoms of ADHD. Based on his experience, he offers a shocking conclusion: ADHD is not a condition on its own, but rather a symptom complex caused by over twenty separate conditions—from poor eyesight and giftedness to bipolar disorder and depression—each requiring its own specific treatment. Drawing on in-depth scientific research and real-life stories from his numerous patients, ADHD Does not Exist synthesizes Dr. Saul’s findings, and offers and clear advice for everyone seeking answers.
