Summary:

Addiction is a disease; it is preventable and treatable. It is not a moral failing. As with other illnesses, the approaches most likely to work are based on science - not on faith, tradition, contrition, or wishful thinking. Those facts are the foundation of Clean, a new paradigm for preventing drug abuse and treating addiction and the mental illnesses that usually accompany it. Based on the latest research in psychology, neuroscience, and medicine, Clean argues for an approach that is radically different from what currently passes for prevention and treatment. Sheff has talked to scientists, social workers, addicts, and their families to find out what can work, and just as important, how addiction itself works. Clean offers clear, cogent counsel for addicts and their loved ones no matter what stage of the illness they're in. But it is also a book for all of us - a powerful rethinking of one of the greatest public health challenges of our time.

    I am a PHYSICIAN, an MD and and I AM IN RECOVERY. I bought BOTH text and audio so I read and listened to both! This is an outstanding work by David Sheff! Clean is an extensively researched and very compelling body of important information! A strong argument for an end to the criminalization of America’s drug problem. I could not agree more! NARRATOR IS WRONG FOR THE SUBJECT MATTER! He sounds sardonic, sarcastic and cynical like he is delivering a monologue in a stand-up comedy routine ! The narrator nearly ruined the impact on me! The information is so very important I hated to hear it delivered badly! MR SHEFF I WANT TO NARRATE YOUR BOOK FOR YOU ...I could do a far better job!
