You are not alone—millions find themselves in the clutches of addiction. Michael McGee, M.D., an addiction psychiatrist, has treated thousands of people struggling with addiction.

He helps you understand: • Addiction is a brain disease—you didn't choose to become addicted. • Shame fuels addiction and keeps you from seeking treatment. • Treatment works—both residential and out-patient. • Medications relieve withdrawal symptoms and help you stay sober. • You can heal—turning emotional pain into growth and transformation. Don't Lose Hope! Millions Have Recovered from Addiction. You Can, Too!
