“People need guidance and understanding, not judgment and stigma, and the sooner we realize this, the more lives we’ll be able to save.” – Dr. Adi Jaffe
I loved speaking with Dr. Adi Jaffe today about addiction, relationships, abstinence, and shame, as well as his book, The Abstinence Myth.
What I found most fascinating about our conversation today was Dr. Adi Jaffe’s different perspective on helping people with addiction. In turn, it was interesting to compare my own therapeutic approach to his. Why? I found Dr. Adi Jaffe to be so uniquely inclusive with his practices, specifically with the underlying emotional reasons for addiction.
