Uncovering the Addiction Conspiracy

BEL AIR, Md., Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ — Expanding on his revolutionary approach to addiction treatment — treating it as a true medical disease rather than a choice — Dr. Lee Tannenbaum, an addiction medicine specialist certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine, confronts accepted addiction treatment methods established in the 1930s with “The Addiction Conspiracy: Unlocking Brain Chemistry and Addiction so You Don’t Have to Struggle.” Dr. Lee Tannenbaum addresses stigma, 12-step programs, rehabilitation programs, methadone clinics, new research on brain chemistry and addiction medicine, such as buprenorphine, along with first-person narratives from those who struggled with addiction and achieved success through addiction medicine treatment.

“The Addiction Conspiracy” presents the information so those struggling with addiction and their friends, family members and co-workers can understand how drug use actually changes the chemistry of the brain, making sobriety more than an issue of willpower. Featuring easy-to-understand explanations and diagrams, “The Addiction Conspiracy” takes groundbreaking medical research and makes it accessible to the general public.

Key points:

— Recent study of brain chemistry proves addiction is a disease, which can be treated like many other diseases with medicine, such as buprenorphine.

— The general medical community does not treat addiction as it treats other diseases, like diabetes and high blood pressure, although similar maintenance medication controls the disease and allows patients to lead happy and productive lives.

— The most widely-accepted treatment for addiction is the Alcoholics Anonymous model, which has been used since the 1940s. No other medical treatment from the 1940s is still practiced today.

— Understanding addiction means understanding the basics of brain chemistry and how drug use actually alters the brain, teaching it that it needs the drug to survive.

— First-hand testimonials demonstrate incredible accounts of immediate and long-term success with the use of addiction medicine.
