Healing the Scars of Addiction
The wreckage of addiction lies scattered around too many people--from the one who is or was addicted to those in relationship with that person. Age-old culprits of drugs, alcohol, and gambling are joined by newer addictions, such as food, prescription medication, shopping, pornography, and technology. Left unaddressed, addiction devastates lives now and makes it difficult to see a positive way forward.
For anyone struggling with an addiction, attempting to live in recovery, or seeking to understand the mind of an addict they love, Dr. Jantz's newest book is a lifeline. In it he helps readers answer tough questions, such as
- Am I an addict?
- Why is the first step so hard?
- How can I put my life back together?
- Where do I go from here?
Addiction doesn't have to have the last word. Healing the Scars of Addiction offers a holistic approach to healing so that readers can reclaim their lives and move forward in hope.
My thoughts: This book is an excellent book for those struggling with addictions, whether it be a food based addiction, alcohol, drugs, gambling, technology, etc., this book does a wonderful job of helping one see the addiction in your life and how to deal with it. I really appreciated the true stories included to drive home different points, especially with how important the first steps are and where to go from there. If you or a loved one is struggling with an addiction, I highly recommend picking this book up!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
