A Mother-Daughter Story of Substance Abuse and Recovery

Told through the voices of a mother-daughter writing team, this title offers a personal account of addiction and how it affects the entire family. As a valuable complement to their own stories of family addiction and recovery, the authors also provide advice and resources for parents dealing with addiction. In this prescriptive section, they discuss how to identify the signs of addiction, where to turn for help, and how to understand this disease.

Told from the trustworthy perspective of two people who have been there, these hard-won tips are preventative in their efforts to help parents help their kids at an early phase rather than glossing over what may be calls for help. “Addicted Like Me” tackles the long-lasting effects of addiction in many shapes, and provides a story of recovery that is sure to resonate with anyone who has experienced addiction in their family.

“In telling their shared story from two perspectives, the authors illuminate how recovery can save a family. This is a gripping story that also offers hope and help to families and individuals suffering from addiction.”
