Book Review by RecoveryView.com Online Journal - Editor Josie Herndon
Addictions, What All Parents Need to Know to Survive the Drug Epidemic by Rev. Kevin T. Coughlin, Ph.D. guides parents through the maze of treatment options, breaks down the question of what they really offer, and what signs they need to watch out for in their children’s behavior.Most parents reading this will be shocked to find out how many street drugs, prescription drugs, new drugs, and old drugs are within reach of their children. This book even goes into depth about what those drugs look like, where they can be found, how they are made and how much they cost.
While the book is geared toward protecting and helping children, there is even a chapter on what parents should look out for in their own behavior. Afterall, enabling and other dysfunction can quietly creep into the familial experience.
The details in this book are invaluable for a parent struggling with a potentially addicted teen and offers plenty of empowerment through knowledge.
