  • About the Book

    Through the years, substance addiction has become a strategic issue.  Most violence-related penalties constitute a consequence of drugs and alcohol addiction, including a significant part of the property crimes.  This book portrays the problem's roots. 

    Approximately forty percent of those addicted to hard substances, who come to ''Rothschild Two'', successfully withdraw from substances. This saves the police and courts  work on tens of  thousands of files, but even more so, spares a great deal of suffering for the substance addicts, their families, and the public as a whole.  The key to this therapeutic success lies within the implementation of innovative models for helping addiction victims and aiding in their rehabilitation.  The core of the model is identifying their cycle of suffering which has guided their lives for years. 

    The author explains and demonstrates the relationship of past personal trauma among substance addicts and their subsequent substance addiction.
