The author does not shy from either topic. He spends time in his own reflectiveness and honesty. While he does not overly dwell on the whys he does thoroughly cover it. The remainder of the book is well researched on how to consult experts, find facilities, manage interactions with a child addict. Through the extremely dire situation, Sheff's parenting skills are kicked into high alert. For all of his early failings he is dedicated both emotionally and financially to finding a solution to save his son's life.
I appreciated every page of this book. Very worth the read!
Writers such as Mr. Scheff will undoubtedly speed up the process of understanding addiction. When that time comes we as a country may just see drug counselors leaving the profession in droves. In the meantime, if you have a loved one addicted to a substance, read this book.
