Addiction research – a solution for addiction

Addiction research team show new approach works

This important addiction research trial published in 2020, found that using the Rediscovery Process achieved better results in terms of reducing alcohol use, and other issues that contribute to addiction, than treatment as usual.

The addiction research team studied a new approach for addictions and concluded that there is a better way to make change, avoiding the familiar cycle of change and relapse that so many people have struggled with over the years. Researchers found that by using the Rediscovery Process participants with alcohol use issues found they reduced their alcohol use significantly compared to treatment as usual. This provides an exciting new set of options for all those dealing with the difficulties of managing addictions. You can watch some of our success story videos here.
