Chris Childs is an unusually talented young man. A post-doctoral fellow at a prestigious medical center near San Francisco, he is also a gifted musician. It is his music that attracts Erin Leahy to him. The attraction is mutual and powerful. But the man who introduces them was a former rival of Chris and when he learns that he has been replaced in Erin’s affection, he is furious. In retaliation he entices her to try a new experience, which she learns, too late, is heroin. Horrified at first, she succumbs and becomes addicted, unaware of the reason for her unusual susceptibility. She is able to hide her addiction from Chris until she accidentally overdoses and has to be hospitalized. After her release, a struggle is waged between the power of opiate addiction and the medical knowledge that guides its treatment. When Erin relapses and flees, Chris must seek the guidance of a wise man, a pioneer in the use of methadone in the treatment of heroin addiction. The stakes in this struggle could not be higher. Even a momentary lapse may be fatal. The story is a retelling of the ancient legend of Orpheus and Eurydice in the context of a very current, complex, social and medical problem. Drama

The present volume offers a new approach in the quest to discover the truth about nature. The main idea is to proceed, not by way of observation, but rationally by working out the implications of a formal signature of the world’s existence, an algebraic form called the Law of Laws.

The workbook addresses several concepts and starts with the prevention of relapse. The major part of the workbook is how to develop support systems for maintaining recovery that contribute to successful recovery. The text shows many elements that contribute to addiction. It goes into detail about the genetic aspects of addiction. There is also a segment of how executive functioning of the brain can get impaired with addiction that compromises judgment, impulse control, and the ability to organize. But these impairments can be temporary with practicing having good judgment and impulse control, since new neuropathways can develop with exercising these functions. The stages of recovery and change are reviewed as well as the twelve steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. One chapter is dedicated to powerlessness and unmanageability. At the end of each chapter, there are references for the reader to consult that have been used for the content of the workbook chapters.
