Addiction treatment is failing worldwide because it deals with the effects of addiction which is addictive behaviour, rather than the actual the cause of the addiction which is childhood trauma. I discuss why addiction is an attempt to deal with the pain of childhood trauma and the path to recovery starts with reconnection with your true self. By restoring the connections with your body and the emotions you lost as a child you can start the process of recovery.
