Overview

"Running Away From Me” is a must read book for anyone suffering from addiction or has a loved one suffering from this disease. David's depiction of his constant struggles is all too familiar of those that have started down this road of destruction. It is my belief that nobody starts using drugs with the expectation of becoming an addict. The progression from having a good time to using to survive is a slippery slope that most people have difficulty in comprehending. I am fortunate to work with addicts. Those that are able to rehabilitate become productive members of our society. Because of the stigma associated with addiction most people don't get the help that they or a loved one needs. The field of addiction has always encouraged those in recovery to protect their anonymity. Unfortunately by doing so our successes have been minimized and failures magnified. If you see yourself or someone you love heading down the same path as David don't believe that it "won't happen to you". The consequences of addiction are all too real. I commend David for being brutally honest and hope that others may learn from his experiences." George Crisco, Executive Director of “The Friary”.
