Stanton Peele is a rogue in the treatment industry.  Controversial is his middle name.  Check out his blog.  While your at it, look through his videos.   He doesn’t see addiction as a disease; but moreover a personal behavioral problem and more related to social ills.  His latest book Addiction Proof Your Child explores addiction in his own view which you can judge for yourself in Amazon’s expanded preview of the book.  It is actually a fairly big chunk of the book which is anything but traditional in what people believe about addiction and young people…and people in general.   It’s worth a look.
