When Your Heart Belongs to an Addict, it changes how you view the world. What begins as an altruistic endeavor to free your loved one from addiction turns into an obsessive quest to "love" the addict into wellness. This twisted form of love undermines what you so desperately wish to achieve and makes you lose your own way. 

Cyndee Rae Lutz has walked this path and has mentored others who share this difficult journey. Her struggles have taught her about the addictions and afflictions we all confront - about individual frailties and the various ways we try to manage the unmanageable.

In this book, she weaves the painful account of her son's drug addiction with the healing strategies and spiritual wisdom that transformed her life -- and can transform yours, whether you're facing a crisis or wanting to change direction. The result is a liberating and empowering process called "The 3 Rs for the Soul." This fusion of powerful ideas, pertinent examples, and concrete steps will help shine a light on your inherent worth, restore your sanity, and reclaim your life.  

And it just might be the best thing you can do for your loved one. Often when you get better, they get better too.

About the Author

Cyndee Rae Lutz Cyndee Rae Lutz believes in the power of transformation. She loves the human spirit-and dogs, especially standard poodles. Cyndee has weathered personal struggles including divorce and parenting a drug-addicted child to emerge a stronger, wiser, more centered person. Her life experiences have made her a compassionate, approachable resource for others, and her desire to guide individuals toward their better selves drives both her personal and professional endeavors. Cyndee has mentored females ages 12 to 70, as well as people negotiating changes or challenges in their careers or personal lives. Rather than giving advice, she provides options for people seeking positive change so they may discover or reclaim their personal worth. As a teacher of yoga, Cyndee has instructed up to 50 students weekly how to move forward using the practice's spiritual principles. Her guidance also extends to sports, with service as a racquetball pro and softball coach. As a publisher, she launched a magazine, Divorce in Denver: Moving Forward, to show readers the way through divorce and custody proceedings and step confidently into their new lives. The bimonthly publication empowered readers with knowledge and resources she found difficult to find during her own divorce. As a speaker and author of the book, When Your Heart Belongs to an Addict-A Healing Perspective, Cyndee challenges societal standards of success, self-worth, and spirituality. Cyndee takes a spiritual approach to helping others discover their worth, which means she doesn't judge what someone believes, but rather helps individuals identify something they can trust and hang on to-whether or not the belief is based in a religious tradition. She also draws upon her sponsorship of those in recovery by incorporating into her writings the 12-step approach used to combat addiction, as well as the yoga philosophy she has embraced. Cyndee's formal education includes holding CPA, securities, and insurance licenses; a BS in Business; and an MBA in Finance and Accounting, which give her sound footing as a small-business owner. She is a corporate trainer for Fortune 500 companies on health and wellness topics. Her professional affiliations include membership in the Denver Woman's Press Club, Yoga Teachers of Colorado, and the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention. In her free time, Cyndee logs miles upon miles in her walking shoes and practices yoga and meditation. A lifelong learner, she is open to all she hasn't yet imagined. She is married and lives with her husband in Centennial, Colo.
