This book has helped me to better understand addiction and how it changes the brain and cognition of addicts, and is the best resource to present to people who do not understand addiction, and make the most ignorant comments like: A comprehensive look at addiction from a biological and psychological point of view, written to be understood by a layperson.

Despite the title, this is not really a book about science, and it's not a book for academic types. This book is designed to get the attention of the suffering addict and alcoholic or the attention of family and loved ones , and in that regard I think it's a useful publication.
The book explains addiction the way a good clinician tries to explain medical problems in the clinic. The language is plain and simple. The book follows a logical, readable trajectory.
First, Dr. Urschel says, you have to understand that you are fighting a disease.
He spells out how the brain works and why the brain is vulnerable to intoxicating substances. Third, he discusses the topics that are part of every good addiction treatment program. If every patient checking into a treatment program could have, on day one, a manual summarizing what the attending physician believes, and how the program works, and where to get more information, I think that would be helpful.
For that reason alone—Dr. Urschel has spelled out his thinking and his belief system in straightforward fashion—this book is going to help people.
The book should also inspire other doctors to write down what they think and how they conceptualize their approach. Patients need for us to take steps like this. There are shortcomings likely to be corrected in future editions.
There are no footnotes, there are imprecise references, and there is no bibliography. Instead, the reader is encouraged to visit the website for the treatment program Enterhealth, where Dr. Urschel is the chief of medical strategy.
