As the CEO and founder of the Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center in Malibu, California, Richard Taite has developed a successful treatment protocol that includes specific evidence-based interventions reflecting the Stages of Change behavioral model. At Cliffside Malibu, Richard is dedicated to helping addicts overcome their addictions so they can lead their best lives. As a hands-on CEO overseeing daily operations, he practices what he preaches with regard to addiction recovery—a rigorous schedule of exercise, yoga, meditation, therapy, acupuncture, and self-reflection to maintain his sobriety. Richard is co-author of the book Ending Addiction for Good, completedjust prior to his 10-year sober anniversary. He lives the life he always dreamed of with his wife and daughter in Malibu.
Seeking addiction treatment for a loved one can be an overwhelming prospect. Ending Addiction for Good offers a powerful message of hope. Using clear and direct language, the authors look beyond the limits of conventional treatment to show how creating an individualized, evidence-based, integrated treatment protocol can provide a sure path to recovery. They empower both addicts and their families to begin their recovery. Ending Addiction for Good may well be the most important book dealing with alcoholism and drug addiction to come along in years.
