Two Addiction Professionals Review of “Molecular Neurobiology of Addiction Recovery: The 12 Steps Program and Fellowship”

Joan Borsten and Liz Winchell

 

Abstract

This review is written from the perspective of a “normie,” one of those working in the field of addiction treatment that is neither an alcoholic nor an addict.

From 2007-2014 I was the co-owner, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Malibu Beach Recovery Center. I answered most admission calls personally and was therefore usually the first voice a potential client heard. Most were calling because they were looking for a holistic neuroscience based program and believed that what we did was cutting edge – eating according to a high-dopamine low-glycemic diet, finding balance by doing several hours a day of kurma yoga, and taking an over the counter supplement designed to raise dopamine levels (SynaptagenX).
