About the Book

The End of My Addiction

The End of My Addiction is both a riveting personal memoir of battling addiction and the inspiring scientific saga of an extraordinary physician who bravely used himself as a guinea pig to find an effective medication for this deadly disease --- and then shed his anonymity as a physician with addiction and campaigned against all odds to bring this breakthrough treatment, which produces complete, rapid, and effortless freedom from addiction, to the attention of a dogmatic medical establishment. Astonishingly, the medication he found, baclofen, has been hiding in plain sight of the addiction treatment community for years. Yet despite baclofen’s sterling safety record and compelling evidence of its effectiveness, most addiction specialists and researchers continue to ignore it.

The first book to combine the personal experience of addiction with the science of addiction, and the first to bring the healing potential of baclofen to the public at large, The End of My Addiction is also a compassionate call to action that could herald the end of addiction for tens of millions of people with this disease, until now deadly and irreversible.
