...Today, the cultural need for an expert medical opinion concerning normal life struggles is a major stumbling block for substance users. Many want to stop, but modern therapies with their myriad of inconsistent, confusing, and complicated solutions have not, and do not offer substance users an option that can adequately compete with the pleasures they get from using alcohol and drugs. Not only does the modern approach not offer a better alternative, but it compounds the problem by providing substance users seemingly viable, yet false excuses for continuing their inappropriate behavior.
Why is it acceptable to offer treatment that does not end in a fulfilling, successful life? So far, addiction treatment has stumbled along with the same abysmal success rate that existed since treatment first began! And, in most cases, getting treatment actually lowers an individual's chances of moderating or getting sober, forever. This is why it is so important to dispel these false theories and find a solution that works.

It is important for you to clearly understand that those who drink and drug to excess, and to the detriment of themselves or others, do so with the full knowledge of what they are doing.

With this in mind, it is important to recognize that the most common method for people to overcome the excessive consumption of alcohol and drugs is by choosing to do so, on their own. (Heyman, 2009)
