Seventy-four percent (74%) to 85% of alcoholics were found to be sober and emotionally stable 3.5 years after going through the Health Recovery Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA founded by Joan Mathews Larson PhD who treats drug and alcohol problems as well as anxiety and depression with a nutritional approach.
This compares to about a 5% success with “Talk Therapy” based programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous.
She opened the Center in 1981 after her son had committed suicide in the 1970’s after returning home from a hospital-based “Talk Therapy” program.
She thought there must be a better way.
Her treatments are all based on scientific research.
Biochemical glitches cannot be “talked away”.
They cannot be solved with Talk Therapy.
There needs to be a paradigm shift in the treatment of addiction problems, away from Talk Therapy, and to where it is recognize it as biochemical problem that requires nutritional therapies to solve.
