Alcoholism and Drug Addiction-Change to Recovery

Alcoholism/drug addiction is a disease and Relapse is part of recoveryNot true says, Dorothy M.

Neddermeyer, PhD, Holistic Healer. Using a holistic approach Body, Mind and Spiritpeople can be healed of alcoholism and drug addiction without relapse and without cravings by healing the underlying causes which precipitate the need to use alcohol or drugs to cope.
