“The  opposite of addiction is not sobriety. The opposite of addiction is connection.” Johann Hari sums up the addiction treatment debacle in 15 minutes. Why we use connection to re-establish the pieces of the broken addict and how it works better than the system of punishment, shaming and forcing subsistence on an individual or punishment of removing the connection.  This is the exact model we at The Addictions Coach use and have been for years. It works, and it is working in Portugal. It is time that the archaic thinking of 1935 of the USA gets re-evaluated.
