The Anatomy Of Addiction

As compelling as it is informative and authoritative, The Anatomy of Addiction, by Dr. Akikur Mohammad, M.D., will lead you to a better understanding about the causes, prevention, and treatment of addiction. It explains in layman’s terms what constitutes effective, evidence-based addiction medicine and how to find it.

This book provides actionable, scientific information for addicts and their families and details how to avoid so-called rehab clinics that are at best useless and at worst dangerous and even life threatening.
