Survey Showing 91% of Addicts Face Post Acute Withdrawal Published by Recovery First, Inc.

ability of neuronal pathways." (1)

But Davis claims that there's a lot more to this relapse-causing condition than neuronal disturbances alone:

"PAWS is caused by changes in neurons as a result of prolonged substance abuse, but this is just one piece of the puzzle. Other forces are at work, including the backfiring of evolutionary survival mechanisms and a powerful conditioned response similar to that experienced in the case of Pavlov's drooling dogs."

Davis is in the process of publishing a book which explains his theories on PAWS in expansive detail. The book is based in part on the survey results, which shows that of the 91% of recovering addicts afflicted with the condition, more than 25% will experience symptoms lasting longer than 2 years.    

Other key findings in the Post Acute Withdrawal Survey include:

*71% of survey respondents believe that PAWS has led to one or more drug/alcohol relapses

*AA & NA Meetings are the favored method of treatment for symptoms related to PAWS

*Most respondents do not treat symptoms with medication

*Most physicians are not familiar with PAWS

*"Stress" and "Emotional Symptoms" were chosen by nearly half of all respondents as the primary symptom types leading to relapse

*61% of those polled had attended an inpatient drug treatment program, with 34% of those failing or quitting the treatment early

*28% of respondents have relapsed 3-6 times, with another 20% relapsing more than 10 times

At Davis' clinic in South Florida, Post Acute Withdrawal is a primary focus of treatment. Recovery First, Inc. was founded by Davis more than a decade ago, and in that time he's helped thousands of addicts and alcoholics achieve sobriety. By addressing the condition on a national level, Davis hopes to bring awareness to both the medical community and the general public.
