Opening Dedication from The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure
“I know your struggle; I know your heartache. I have seen the rending of families, the suffering, the tragic endings, and I have seen the wonder of transcendence over it all. This book is dedicated to you who seek freedom from addiction for yourself or a loved one.”
The book has been gifted to or purchased by more than a quarter of a million people. Several years ago, I checked into a hotel in Florida, and the woman who checked me in saw my driver’s license and exclaimed: “Oh! You’re Chris Prentiss! My husband read your book nine years ago, and he’s been sober ever since.” It warmed my heart.

A complete restoring to a sound or healthy condition, a healing.
“Reading The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure will provide you with the tools to treat your addiction and will change your outlook from one of despondency and hopelessness to one of hope and joy.

Finally Freedom from Addiction
Substance abuse can enslave a person. No one knows this better than Pax and Chris Prentiss. For over ten long, turbulent years Pax was addicted to heroin, cocaine and alcohol. Some would say he was doomed, that his condition was forever and his fate sealed. Others may have given up on Pax, but his father Chris refused to let the drugs consume his son. After many failed attempts through treatment centers advocating 12-Step programs and a superficial view of addiction, Pax and Chris knew they needed a real, lasting solution. What they found changed their lives forever. In searching for the underlying causes of Pax’s addiction and healing them, Pax was finally able to achieve total sobriety. But this achievement wasn’t limited to just abstinence – he also was able to reclaim his health and his life. Today, Pax is CEO and co-founder of Passages.
Learning Through Experience, Leading by Example
From their experiences, both Pax and Chris adopted a refreshing attitude that allowed them to successfully and completely break through fatalistic perspectives of addiction. They designed a rehabilitation program based on what they knew would lead others to recovery: aim high, reach high. Their healing center appreciates the individual differences among people and utilizes a dynamic approach to treatment and to comprehensively address the underlying personal issues which cause a person to use. By empowering those who falsely believe they are powerless, both the treatment center and The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure facilitate nothing short of a transformation.
Unlimited Strength from Within
The core philosophy and pervasive theme of The Alcoholism & Addiction Cure is change from within. In this way, a person gains the necessary tools to enact a fundamental lifestyle metamorphosis. They need not depend on some external force, nor do they need to be branded as an addict or someone who is permanently diseased.
Some may be skeptical of a person’s capacity for change, and justifiably so. The dominant opinion is that an addicted person has a disease, that they are powerless. They are in essence a slave. But scientific, historical, and philosophical evidence show this opinion to be misguided. A person’s internal passion can drive them to achieve feats previously thought to be impossible. Personal beliefs are incredibly powerful tools; and with the right beliefs, a person can defang, confront, and inevitably overcome their dependency.
Your Journey Begins Here
While substance abuse has the potential to enslave, you are the key to unlocking your shackles. The secret to truly overcoming addiction is you. You are fully capable of redefining who you are, and this book can help you on your journey – all you have to do is take the first step.
