Alliance for Addiction Solutions History
The Alliance for Addiction Solutions (AAS) was established September 29, 2007, in Sacramento, California, at the conclusion of the Beyond Talk Therapy: New Frontiers in Addiction Treatment symposium. A group of 23 speakers and participants joyfully discovered they had a common need to join others who understood the biochemical basis of addiction and used similar drug-free techniques to create lasting recovery.
The Symposium was sponsored by the Community Addiction Recovery Association (CARA), a Sacramento non-profit dedicated to the use of acupuncture, nutrition, movement therapies, and other drug-free techniques to support the addicted brain.
Today the Alliance offers some members their first opportunity to network in harmony with colleagues throughout the United States and Canada to accomplish their mutual goals. What is so exciting is the fact using amino acids and a pro-recovery diet can stop the biochemical triggers that lead to addictive thinking and behavior. There are other organizations that focus on using acupuncture, exercise, yoga, and other wholesome treatments. What we focus on is educating the public about using nutrient therapy for addictive disorders. Nutritional deficiencies are the fundamental trigger for addiction. Once the brain is properly nourished, these and many other modalities can be helpful to maintain recovery.
