Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Drugs can be a tempting refuge for everyone--from school kids and housewives to stressed corporate executives and ex-hippies, all seeking enhanced experiences that everyday life fails to provide. These people use drugs because they make them feel good. The longer they take drugs, the harder it is to imagine life without them. Here, drawing on his long-term expertise in this area, Jost Sauer presents readers with a powerful, practical, step-by-step recovery regime and a wealth of case studies that deal with a whole range of issues to help people fully realize a life beyond drugs. Topics include what's really going on in psychotic episodes, how to handle the postdrug emotional roller-coaster, why raw foods hinder recovery, what forms of exercise work, and how to achieve natural highs.

Library Journal Review

Sauer, a therapist and Chinese medicine expert, offers drug users and their families a comprehensive recovery regimen to help them achieve a successful, sober lifestyle. According to Sauer, a former drug user, drugs are all about the experience, and drug treatment programs should include the knowledge that people take drugs because they love the way they make them feel. The author then shows how a combination of creating chi, eating the right foods, and finding support from others can help those in recovery feel extraordinary again. He discusses the highs and lows of various drugs and offers the uninitiated a window into the addict's world. In addition to individuals in recovery and those who love them, this book should be read by all those considering using a recreational substance. (c) Copyright 2010.
