(From the book jacket of "Alcoholism--The Biochemical Connection" by Joan 

You are about to embark on a seven-week journey that will change your 
life.  Once and for all, you are going to break your addiction to alcohol 
and end your cravings--and do it under your own power.  You are going to 
reverse the harm that alcohol has done to your body--without having to 
endure the emotional and physical anguish which traditionally accompanies 
detoxification.  If you think it sounds too good to be true, think 
again.  At last, the statistics work for you because this medically 
respected program boasts an amazing 75 percent recovery and maintenance 
rate as opposed to the 25 percent success rate realized by standard 
treatment approaches.

In "Alcoholism--The Biochemical Connection", Joan Mathews Larson, PhD., 
who developed the system at her esteemed Health Recovery Center in 
Minneapolis, and HRC's medical consultant Keith W. Sehnert, M.D. 
conclusively prove that the traditional rehabiltation programs fall 
because alcohol related emotional dysfunctions such as depression and 
memory loss are the physiological effects, not the psychological causes, 
of your illness.  Most of the damage done by alcohol abuse cannot be 
"talked out", bio-repair is essential to healing both your body and mind.

Larson and Sehnert then provide you with all the information you need to 
begin detoxification and recovery.  They lay out a detailed, week-by-week 
protocol for wellness featuring suggested lab workups; biotype 
questionnaires that reveal the biochemical roots of your addiction; 
complete dietary and exercise plans, vitamin and mineral therapy 
regimens--all illustrated by actual case histories--as well as extensive 
charts, graphs, and tests that enable the individual at any point in the 
seven weeks to evalutate his or her progress and select the most effective 
nutritional formulas for treating specific deficiencies.

Dr. Joan Mathews Larson began researching alcoholism after her teenaged 
son's suicide following rehab.  Larson's impassioned sensitivity to the 
subject adds to the efficacy of "Alcoholism--The Biochemical 
Connection"--an upbeat program in book form, empowering you to free 
yourself from the fetters of a crippling disease...permanently.
