Publisher's Description

The real truth about Recovery? It contradicts science and medicine. It contradicts the Bible. It doesn't work. Nevertheless, millions of Americans have been led to believe that Recovery is the answer to addictive behavior. In this startling book you'll learn shocking facts like these:
- Even though 87% of Americans believe alcoholism is a disease, there is no scientific evidence to support the disease model of alcoholism. Yet the model provides the basis for nearly all Recovery programs.
- According to available evidence, addicts in Recovery programs have no better recovery rate than those who receive no treatment.
- In spite of billions of dollars spent on Recovery, there are more alcoholics and drug addicts now than before the Recovery approach came into vogue.
- Though widely thought to have Christian roots, Alcoholics Anonymous has more in common with Eastern religions than Christianity. It is time to blow the whistle on the Recovery industry. The Useful Lie provides all the necessary evidence. More than that, it points the way toward genuine freedom from addiction.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who is struggling with addictions but do not feel moved to join the traditional 12-step programs that nearly all hospitals and therapists promote. This book really validated a lot of my own personal feelings towards how the medical & recovery communities are currently handling addictions. I finally found real hope after reading this book!
