AfterPartyPod: An Argument For Non-Abstinence with Dr. Adi Jaffe

adi-jaffeDr. Adi Jaffe is someone who’s well-known in addiction and recovery circles—primarily for his unorthodox approach to recovery. A former meth addict who went to prison for dealing drugs, Jaffe cleaned up his act in rehab and spent three years in 12-step abstaining from drugs and alcohol. And then one day he thought about drinking; he talked it over with the people in his life and gave it a try. It’s now 11 years later and his addiction hasn’t resurfaced, despite the fact that he’s sampled both pot and ecstasy during this past decade and change. During this time, he went to grad school, became a counselor and opened Alternatives Addiction Treatment, a rehab that teaches people to moderate drinking (it also shows those seeking abstinence how to achieve that). A sought-after public speaker (check out his Ted X talk here), Jaffe is the first to admit that he may be wrong about his approach to addiction but is determined to try to spark conversations that show people there are alternatives to 12-step. In this episode, we discuss why you shouldn’t ride a motorcycle to make your drug deals, what it’s like to stay sober in jail and how he may have just had his first spiritual experience, among many other topics.
