This book can change your life. I wrote it to help others avoid the pain and misery caused by addiction and relapse that I lived through until I finally learned how to recover. I will help you understand addiction and show you the road to recovery. Once you read my story and see what I went through because of my addiction to drugs and alcohol, and then see how I was able to recover from it and remain clean and sober, then you will see that you can do it, too. This book will show you how. Addiction to drugs and alcohol can have devastating effects on life, family, and relationships, and in many cases leads to incarceration or death. If you have family or friends that are having problems with drugs and alcohol, then this book will help you understand them and what they are going through so you can better formulate a plan to help them get treatment so they can start to recover and get their life back.
