Information on treating marijuana addiction?

I was wondering if you could provide me with some information regarding treating marijuana addiction. My girlfriend has had a
dependency on the drug for the last 16 years. Lately she has expressed the desire to quit , but she is not sure how she should go about it. Also I believe she is scared that if she quits she won't be able to deal with life's daily stresses.

So I was wondering if you could recommend any books or methods that may help with the quitting process.

"End Your Addiction Now: The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free."
Charles Gant, M.D., Ph.D.

By So Grateful "So Grateful" (Illinois) - See all my reviews

This book helped me to prepare to quit using drugs and helped me to realize,in a drug induced state, that I in fact had a choice in the matter and no longer needed to be enslaved. I am drug free since January 3rd, 2006, because of this book and the supplements I took. I no longer take the supplements and am still recovering from 8 painful years of substance abuse.

Solid research and understanding, January 19, 2007
By M. Bromius "desert_scholar" (Tucson, AZ United States) - See all my reviews

Of course the medical and psychology field will try and debunk him for his groundbreaking work. Once you read this, you'll realize how simple and logical it is, and also how threatening it is to the money hungry professionals.

I've dealt with drug and sugar addictions, all my life. I've tried several conventional programs with no success. After only two days taking amino acids, I feel more in control of my life, and my decisions than I have for the past 20+ years.

Charles Gant has solid research, and he understands and knows what he is talking about. He explains it in layman terms so it's easy to comprehend. I strongly recommend reading this book; it's changed my life.

Works Like a Miracle...., August 23, 2006
By nonalori "nonalori" (San Leandro, CA USA) - See all my reviews

This review is from: End Your Addiction Now : The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free (Hardcover)
What's needed here are a few testimonials. Here's one for you. My son had been sleeping it off for a week and was totally in a fog. I fixed him a homemade orange julius, opened the capsules and slipped in Dr Gant's recommended nutrients, and walla... You never saw anyone come alive faster -in 3 minutes!! Here's the proof that it works: My son came so alive so fast that he insisted i tell him what I had put in his orange drink. He knew 'something' had worked!!

Changed My Life!!, July 2, 2006
By G. M. Simmons (Southeast) - See all my reviews

I highly recommend this book to everyone, not just those with substance problems. The typical American diet is so devoid of many of the nutrients that this program recommends, all can benefit, regardless of personal situation.
Thanks to following the program for my specific issues, I am now completely off of precription anxiety medicine, not drinking and losing weight. I sleep better, think clearer, have more energy and enjoy life at a level far better than I could ever have imagined.
My skin is clearer, nails stronger, and hair glossier. Everyone knows that these are sure signs of a healthy being.
The improvement to my life is truly amazing.
The information contained in this book is invaluable!! Help other customers find the most helpful reviews

Gant Vindicated, October 27, 2005

This review is from: End Your Addiction Now : The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free (Hardcover)
RE: CHARLES GANT, MD

The website of the NYS Office of Professional Medical Conduct begins its report of the Charles Gant case by listing a series of charges brought against him in highly inflammatory and misleading language. Only if you really like reading long text on computer screens would you ever get to the part where it is revealed that the charges relating to the quality of his medical care have been overturned by a OPMC hearing panel. In fact, the hearing panel upheld Dr. Gant's methodology, which relies heavily on using nutritional supplements to treat many conditions by rebalancing biochemistry, most notably, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) in children. Further, they found that, contrary to the charges, Dr. Gant had done no harm to any of his patients:

"The committee unanimously agreed that the Respondent's license should not be revoked. The record in this case established Respondent was not incompetent nor did his conduct amount to gross negligence. Nor did they find that his diagnostic or testing practices were an attempt to reap excessive financial gain. He was well versed in his type of practice and was not trying to take advantage of his patients. In mitigation of the findings of fraud, the committee notes that the use of erroneous codes was not done for the Respondent's financial benefit since his practice was one of fee for service."

See: www.Quackwatch.org, April 9, 2005
By A librarian in Florida - See all my reviews

This review is from: End Your Addiction Now : The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free (Hardcover)
"The New York State Supreme Court has upheld suspension of the license of Charles Gant, M.D., who practiced "orthomolecular medicine" in Solvay, New York. The judge's ruling summarizes what happened:

"Petitioner, a physician licensed to practice in New York since 1980 who specializes in the nonconventional field of orthomolecular medicine,' was charged by the Bureau of Professional Medical Conduct with 74 specifications of misconduct under Education Law § 6530. The charges included gross negligence, gross incompetence, negligence on more than one occasion, incompetence on more than one occasion, fraud, moral unfitness, excessive testing, filing a false report, receiving consideration from a third party for patient referral and failing to maintain adequate records. The allegations stem from petitioner's treatment of nine patients from 1998 to 2000, as well as reports that petitioner had, among other things, misrepresented his credentials, utilized a laboratory to conduct diagnostic tests for which it was not certified in New York and received improper consideration from a nutritional supplement company in which he had an ownership interest."

Solid Examination of Nutrition, Brain Chemistry, & Addiction, October 26, 2003
By Jed Shlackman (Miami, FL United States) - See all my reviews

This review is from: End Your Addiction Now : The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free (Hardcover)
This book clearly documents how nutritional imbalances contribute to addictive substance use, and how nutritional treatment can help safely and effectively resolve problems with addictions. The author also points out how prescribed psychoactive medications are also addictive substances that aggravate underlying nutritional deficiencies. This book is a great contribution to the field of orthomolecular medicine and natural substance abuse treatment. Unfortunately, health care insurance, which insures income for doctors and pharmaceutical business interests rather than your health, does not cover nutritional healing interventions. Those seeking true health must make a personal commitment of resources and willingness to make lifestyle changes rather than expecting a pill or a professional to magically take their problems away.

Very Helpful Information, March 8, 2002
By Patty E. Fleener "Webowner - Mental Health Today" (Oregon) - See all my reviews

This review is from: End Your Addiction Now : The Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free (Hardcover)
I am the webowner of Mental Health Today. I have always been an advocate of nutrition and I was greatly impressed with Dr. Gant's book. I feel that he provides us with some excellent and very helpful information.
The biggest issue I can think of is for those people who have "more expensive" habits such as non-prescription opiates, methamphetamines, etc. Nutritional supplements are quite expensive unfortunately and many of us who don't have drug habits are unable to afford sizeable amounts of these supplements.
