In this marvelous, insightful book, the focus is not on one therapy but on weaving together therapies that support an individual’s unique needs and lead to long-term sobriety, happiness, and overall good health.”

Ending Addiction for Good addresses both the adult and the child-in-the-adult to break the cycle of harm to the next generation while healing old emotional wounds. I’m a pediatrician; I have seen addiction hurt COUNTLESS children and families. A mother or father is just not present and available to be a skilled loving parent until they deal with THEIR addiction.

Dominique Robertson, MFT, PsyD

“As an addiction specialist, I champion the Stages of Change model for addiction recovery.  It not only targets and treats the root causes of addiction, but provides recovering addicts with the tools to believe change is possible and to develop the skills to create a sober life without the need to return to addiction.”

Robert Waldman, MD
Addiction Treatment Specialist and Medical Expert on the Treatment of Drug Dependency

“Kudos to Richard Taite and Constance Scharff, PhD for sharing this evidence-based path that allows freedom from addiction.  I have seen the most debilitated addicts recover using this recovery program.  It is utterly amazing to see the healing that occurs and the resulting transformation in lives.”

“In thirty-five years of working with addicts, helping them live rather than die, I have never seen a treatment protocol as effective as that offered by Cliffside Malibu.  I am thrilled that this life-saving protocol is being offered to the world through the book, Ending Addiction for Good.”
