The Freedom Model debunks the addiction disease concept as well as the idea that “recovery” is needed after you’ve decided to abstain or moderate your use. Much of the content within the book may surprise you, maybe even shock you. While The Freedom Model is a book, it is the research and the message contained on those pages that are the real solution to an individual’s struggles with addiction..
The Freedom Model for the Family is an approach for families dealing with a loved one who is struggling with addiction. It was written by the authors of The Freedom Model for Addictions and uses the same principles in a way that families can apply them. We now know what addiction is and what it is not, we know why people struggle, and we know how best to help them and their families.
