"No other book I have read about mental illness captures the intensity and at times insanity of thoughts and feelings like An American's Resurrection. When Eric describes his first episode of illness as "pulling the pin on his mental grenade" you brace yourself and get ready for the explosion...Should be required reading for staff in every psychiatric hospital."
Jill Williams, MD; Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry; UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School
"Eric Arauz is an American original. He is also a remarkable human being. In thirty years of teaching I have never seen a student take
literature more seriously, or bring its insights more fruitfully to bear on his own life. Read this compelling book for inspiration and illumination.
You won't be disappointed!"
Jackson Lears; Editor-in-chief Raritan: A Quarterly Review; Elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; Contributor to the New York Times Book Review, London Review of Books and the Paris Review
"To understand recovery you need to listen to people in all of their journey--- the good and the bad.
Eric's experience is powerful, honest and covers all aspects of struggling with and mastering a dual diagnosis of substance addiction and bipolar disorder."
Ken Duckworth MD; National Medical Director-National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
"This book brings a new perspective and viewpoint to the discussion and treatment of patients with Co-occurring disorders. It highlights and underscores the necessity to accurately diagnose and treat patients, in order to obtain the best possible treatment outcomes that will not only be cost effective, but provide the efficacy of treatment that the patients, so afflicted, require and deserve."
Louis E. Baxter,Sr., M.D., FASAM; Immediate Past President-American Society of Addiction Medicine; Executive Medical DirectorProfessional Assistance Program NJ, Inc.
"As the treatment of Trauma has lost its way over the past thirty years, I would strongly recommend An American's Resurrection be compulsory reading for anyone wishing to work in the mental health field."
Anthony C Stratford; Senior Business Manager, Mind Australia; Visiting Scholar, Yale University School of Medicine (2012); Honorary Fellow, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences, the University of Melbourne
From the Inside Flap
"How does a veteran survive 24 hours in four-point restraints in a maximum-security psychiatric hospital to earn a faculty appointment to a medical school, national advocacy awards, and to lecture in an Ivy League university?"
