PsychoNeuroPlasticity Protocols for Addictions: A Clinical Companion for the Big Book is a book that represents a tipping point in the translation of addiction science into practical, real-world applications for practitioners by Laura Martinez and Dr. Frank Lawlis. It translates brain research into patient deliverables by explaining how to use the brain to fight addiction and improve recovery outcomes. It does so while embracing the long-standing recovery culture that has been the only source of hope for addicts and alcoholics in the past fifty years.
The contents of the book reveal the transformational aspects of recovery along with the scientific principles of what Dr. Lawlis has coined as “PsychoNeuroPlasticity,” along with many of the barriers to transformation. More specifically it covers brain patterns that relate to depression, anxiety, OCD, mood and even brain development issues noted in premature development of adjustment in young addicts. The approaches are not singular in nature, but cover a wide range of effective modes of treatment, including diet, exercise, meditation, and biofeedback.
The reader and treatment specialist will be re-energized by witnessing the changes in patient care, staff training, and outcomes. Digging deeper, however, this book is about hope—hope that the work of two decades of brain science will finally reach those who need it most; hope that we finally have a tool that will give us a true advantage in the war on addiction; and hope that lives lost to this disease every year will someday be stymied.
No one can argue the spiritual feeling or the connection to nature when gazing at a beautiful sunset or inspired by the graceful flight of an eagle or the intelligence of the coyote as he survives the barest of resources. It is no wonder that these experienced often are experienced in Transpersonal connections to wisdom and expansion of consciousness on regions over the world, causing richness in interpersonal relationships and sought-after joy and peace.
Perhaps it has been this common sense of awe and transformation that sources of nature has been perceived as elements of spirituality and partial glimpses of the nature of God. Rituals have been present through human history that demonstrate the validity of this conclusion.

The protocols have been tested in clinical settings and the suggestions developed through experience and successes. These ritual descriptions are offered to those individuals who seek wisdoms of nature and the potential for life change.
