Desperate and frightened, those who love addicted people suffer tremendously. This book addresses the issues surrounding drug addiction recovery, with research-based opinions regarding what kind of drug rehabilitation works best and for whom.
In our society, drug addicts and drug addiction are demonized. What continues to fuel the perpetual prejudice, against this disease and those who have it, is a culturally accepted array of misinformation and misunderstanding. It is toward the end of ignorance that the Author writes a brief, research-based primer explicating the nature of addiction and effective drug addiction rehabilitation.
In recovery for over 25 years, herself, Janice Witt has been helping other addicts and alcoholics get well for nearly 24 of them. This is not one of your average addiction recovery books. Janice not only educates the reader, but invites everyone to the journey of learning more about the disease of addiction and then in advocating on the behalves of those who suffer from it.
At the end of the book you will find a website address, allowing you to download a FREE resource guide of addiction professionals and quality addiction treatment facilities recommended by the Author.
