It can be used online, and there’s an app for it as well.

THE HEART OF ADDICTION. By Lance Dodes, M.D. New York: Harper Collins, 2002. 258 pp.

Review by:
Martin A. Silverman

In a field rife with misinformation, obfuscation, intimidation, and exploitation, this book represents a bright beacon of light that can pierce the fog and help save lives. It is full of good sense, accurate information, and helpful guidance for those who would like to free themselves from addictive behavior involving alcohol, gambling, prescription or nonprescription drugs, food, sex, shopping, and the like. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Lance Dodes is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst with a wealth of experience working in or running programs dealing with alcoholism, substance abuse, and compulsive gambling. He also treats addicted individuals in private practice. What he has learned from his experience is epitomized in his assertion that:

Virtually every addictive act is preceded by a feeling of helplessness or powerlessness.
