What Is Addiction?

Contrary to what most people believe, addictions are all caused by the same core driver – whether it’s an addiction to food; smoking; alcohol; drugs; exercise; sex; shopping; gambling; or anything else, the driver is the same. Robert has helped countless people who are addicted to everything from soda to crack cocaine – to free themselves from the addiction and go on to live happy, healthy, fullfilling lives.

What Causes Addiction?

At the root of every addiction is the need to escape from pain. The type of pain will vary, but the drive to escape from it will be the same. Addiction is a coping skill. The reason this is often not recognized by the addict is that the conscious mind is completely unaware of the driver. The subconscious is running the addiction “behind the scenes” – just as it is running everything else.

 

How Does It Work?

The subconscious refers to the references it holds – which can be very complex, and will be unique to each person. It then triggers a chemical reaction in the brain and body that leads to the compulsion for the substance or behavior of addiction. Somewhere along the line, the person has developed the coping skill of “escaping” their pain using this particular behavior or substance, and the brain and body have become dependent. They will usually, consciously, be completely unaware of the original cause.

 

Why Are Success Rates For Most Rehabilitation Programs So Low?

Addressing only the addiction itself is like cutting off the branches of a weed. Unless you remove the root, it will simply continue to regrow those branches – and you’ll need to keep cutting them, or they’ll take over completely. FasterEFT goes to the root – which is the original trauma that is driving the addiction – and addresses that first. Only after addressing the original trauma and other references supporting the addiction, does Robert then address the addictive behavior. And by then, without the original trauma driving the addiction, the person is able to experience permanent changes to their behavior.

 

​FasterEFT And Alcohol And Drug Addiction

​Robert developed his powerful addiction protocol (which he now teaches to Level 4 Eutaptics students in his live seminars) while volunteering at a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Hawaii: Habilitat. Using this FasterEFT addiction protocol, working with Habilitat, Robert was able to help hard-core addicts free themselves from drugs as powerful as meth and heroin – empowering them to return to their families and lead happy, successful, healthy lives.
