Note: These studies predate the present philosophy in the treatment industry coined "duel diagnosis," i.e. using drugs to treat alcohol and drug addiction.

HOLISTIC DRUG REHAB CENTERS
I am extracting a list of Nutritional Rehabilitation Centers from Julia Ross’s book, Mood Cures and Joan Larson's web site Healthrecoverycenter.com. Before I list these Holistic drug rehabs, I’d just like to say that I am comfortable that Julia and Joan have researched this list of centers very thoroughly. I was pleased to see that their references included every book I’ve read times a hundred or more. Julia's book includes a list of strategies you can use at home and a phone number (800) 287-0906 for information on U.S. IV detox. “Important Note: This initial detox-only procedure must be followed with oral supplements, a pro-recovery diet, counseling, and peer support” (2)
