Addicted? presents different ways to recognize the early and often subtle signs of addiction—much in the same way we learn to detect the early signs of cancer. But, unlike cancer, where people rush to get treatment as soon as they recognize the signs, an addiction typically is faced with great guilt and ambivalence. Addicted? provides questionnaires that screen for a wide array of chemical and behavioral addictions at all stages of development, and ends with a step-by-step guide for how to prepare oneself or someone else to overcome addiction.

The book discusses concurrent and substitute addiction, and offers prevention and treatment solutions, which are presented from a more integrative perspective than traditional presentations. This is an ideal text for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, practitioners, and researchers.

The conversations in this book were communicated directly from spirit. Connie Fox transcribed these messages word for word, as they were given to her. Much of the content relates to how everyone can easily experience the hidden presence of their own soul. There is a big difference between believing you have an eternal soul and the direct experience of knowing you are an eternal soul. Beliefs are the cause of all fears and fears are the cause of all problems. Once you go beyond your beliefs you come to know your true nature. A profound sense of peace begins to enter your awareness. By simply allowing this all-encompassing peace into your life, an inner joy and unconditional love spontaneously develops. This is life-changing. Nothing and no one in this physical world can give you this. Such peace comes only from realizing who you are beyond your beliefs. That is the essence of this book: How to live beyond your beliefs, what spiritual growth really means and how to achieve it at a rapid rate. The new knowledge from the awe-inspiring messages in Help From Heaven were communicated from the spirits of Jesus, Buddha, Archangels Gabriel and Metatron, Mother Mary, Mahavatar Babaji, Mahatma Gandhi and others. It is the opinion of Spirit that the simple act of reading these words begins to enliven the soul and heal the heart. It is not just talking around an idea of spirituality; it is delivering the actual experience. There is a Source of power greater than you alone. Find it and your life will never be the same.
