Overview

On June 28, 1996, Pat Holloran's life changed suddenly and forever when Drug Control confronted her for the theft of narcotics from the hospital where she worked.

Pat was working full time on the night shift and taking care of her three children, her husband, and her severely disabled father. Stadol, a narcotic ten times stronger than Morphine, was her drug of choice. She started taking it to help her sleep. She kept taking it because she could not stop.

Walking Like a Duck reveals the agony of enduring a punitive disciplinary process to preserve her nursing license; how it impacted her sanity and her career, and how her secrets and lies traumatized her marriage of over twenty years.

Walking Like a Duck puts a face on addiction�and recovery.
