There are several books about the lives of drug addicts. Stories told of how and why a person uses drugs, the effects of the drug, and how it destroyed their lives to the point where they lost everything, including their families. However, all stories don't have tragic endings. Many people have been able to reach their lowest point and, by God's grace, were able to start over and live totally delivered lives. Yet there is another side to the story. What about the family members who have never experienced drugs and can't understand the strong hold that is tearing their loved one apart? So many lives are being affected by drug abuse. It isn't just the addict who is affected by using the drug, but also the family members who love that person despite the addiction. For some, this book will shed light on the behavior of a drug addict, the effects of drugs on the person who is using them, and the effects drug dependency has on family life. For others, it will be an all-too-familiar recollection of their own experiences. The reality of this issue is painful and there is no way to tip toe around the truth.For some, this book will shed light on the behavior of a drug addict, the effects of drugs on the person who is using them, and the effects drug dependency has on family life.
