If you're one of the people this book is intended to help, then you've just taken an important step that could save the life of someone you care about. This book could end that person's misery and help that person find his or her way to a truly wonderful, whole new life.
And it could end worry and heartbreak for you.
You've seen the person you care about slowly getting worse and worse. When he or she has been drinking alcohol or taking drugs, or both, some pretty awful things have started to happen, like car accidents and bad fights and falls and rages and disappearances and job losses.
You're baffled and hurt and angry. You hope that the person--lover, close family member, key employee, or wonderful friend--will snap out of it. But it doesn't happen. there's a good chance that he or she has become one of the more than twenty million persons who suffer from what is now scientifically recognized as the disease of alcoholism/addiction.
But Addiction-Free helps you find a solution. Now you can learn about all the possible ways in which you can help.
Praise for Addiction-Free
"I have spent twenty-five years working with drug addicts, alcoholigcs, and ex-convicts, and I have a doctorate degree in clinical psychology. No amount of experience or education prepared me for my closest relative going back into addiction. This book is a step-by-step guide on how to detach with love and how to find sanity while you're trying to help your loved one." -- Teri Lynch DeLane, Ph.D., director of Choices Program for Incarcerated Men and Women
